In the middle of a dark room there is a small stage in the light of one theater spot. Visitors are invited to stand on the stage. When you step on stage, the sound of a big, applauding applause follows and two additional spotlights start … until you step off the stage again.
When a person acts with complete confidence, even for insane purposes, it fills a void in us. Charismatic individuals make their followers do insane things by the force of their personalities. It proves the point that the force of a person’s will, of his self-acceptance, can be so strong that he can change the view of the masses. He/she can convince people that what he is doing or saying is beautiful. People become fully accepting in his/her presence, falling prey to his/her complete self-acceptance! Later on, they might wonder how they could have fallen under that spell. Self-acceptance is very attractive. The one who is most congruent will control the situation. If your frame is strong enough, you can get away with anything. Self-acceptance gives you the freedom for fearless expression.
