We have all had moments in our lives where we were more awkward than we would like to be, and we have all had moments where we surprised ourselves with how charming, charismatic and confident we can be. The questions is: how do we go from one to the other on command?
I think that Elon Musk is a great example of someone that represents the best of both worlds. That's why in this video, I want to dive into some clips of Elon to see what you can learn, and how to turn those moments where you are awkward and turn them into ones where you are charming and charismatic.

0:00 - Intro.
1:58 - #1: Elaborate on the question
2:33 - #2: Make consistent eye contact.
3:47 - #3: Crack an understated joke.
5:06 - #4: Embrace the silence.
6:08 - #5: Prime yourself.
7:22 - #6: Fully commit.

Sure he may have come a long way but I honestly I’ve never seen someone so bad at public speaking do so much of it. He exhibits so many big “no no’s” that anyone can learn about in a basic class on public speaking. His body language is awkward, he’s constantly stumbling over his words (so many uhs and ums) and he clearly seems uncomfortable any time he does it. I give him props for going out there anyway though because it’s obviously not his best skill.

He stated about the Joe Rogan show. He was overwhelmed and tired of work. Stressed with work and it was difficult for him to be focused.

He's less shy now because he's flooded with serotonin from being the boss. When you have four different companies, two of which are changing the world, you are going to be less intimidated talking to people because there's security in success.

I was singing on stage once, screwed up the key, lyrics, and timing. Stopped singing, laughed, said something like, "Well there's a good reason to practice more than I did! Can we start over?" Everyone laughed, and this story already sounds so fake I'm not even gonna finish it.

He's very intelligent AND has become the 3rd richest person in the world... if I acted like him in a conversation with someone I'd become the "don't talk to him!" guy in no time. Most examples used are always celebrities or highly successful people, and those factors are always ignored as being factors in how people react to them.

If Elon Musk weren't the ultra-rich and successful investor he is, he'd probably be seen as awkward and childish. There are some good tips in this video but Musk is not very charismatic.

Ok I just noticed something. I watched a recent video of Elon on the Joe rogan show, he was speaking about selling all of his assets. He spoke very awkwardly, very short, and almost uncomfortable answering Joe’s questions. Is it joe that’s making him uncomfortable? Or perhaps they both know something we don’t?

For an introvert professional it is hard to start speak about themes without sounding arrogant. Especially in front of a big group. Being too smart in a tech field is hell when it comes to explaining those in front of ppl who not even understand basic lingo. It is just super awkward. Everything I say in these situations sounds harsh. But I also teach and my students get me, because they have interest and they ask without judgment. Ali Aba and Tesla are two different world created by two different genius.

90mgs of adderall a day.. this is why his body language fluctuates.. A.d.d. and as a HUMAN living with a high IQ adhd/add ... adddhhddd ... disorder lol . I can tell you alot. ..I can tell you how 0mg vs 90 mgs of a certain central nervous stimulants can change ones speech and body language from figity 0mg.. because your adhd is out there its on fire.. to having 90mg and being calm charismatic and getting alot done.. Elon gets stuff done because he works his "flaws " one person's freckles are another person's beauty marks. His brain is not catching up to his body duh.. He probably takes a small dose so he can be more average to the masses. (No ones reading this so far this is crazy talk) His interactions are when you think about it pretty much spot on for all that he has accomplished. His brain is different he knows this and he uses it . He puts on a event because its Public relations... because only the neuro diverse understand the universe... And he is winning..It is what it is..

I think Elon's awkwardness is a genuine and loveable part of his persona. I loved the Joe Rogan interview when he was that somber reflective person, it was as if he was showcasing his inner thought process. Apart from that, I feel like Elon has these slow start ups because when someone says something like "can you talk about ai?" his brain immediately floods with 1 million things about the topic and he needs to straighten out that flow of thought.
