How to Level Up Your Aura as a Man

If you’ve been on TikTok lately, you’ve probably seen the “aura” trend. The clips feature people gaining and losing “aura points” throughout the day. For example, you would lose points if you tripped in public or earn points if you land a 3 pointer in front of a group of women. 

Although this is a silly trend, there’s an element of truth. We’ve all met someone with immense “aura” or a presence that draws you in.

But what exactly is Aura?

Aura is basically someone’s cool factor. People with solid auras are smooth, charismatic, and enjoyable to be around.

Develop a winning mentality
You’ll need to maintain a positive outlook if you want to increase your aura. How do you maintain a positive outlook? 

Create the habit of focusing on the positives and opportunities in every situation. Imagine you and your friends are going to a bar but it’s closed when you arrive. One of the upsides to this situation is that you can visit a new bar and try something new. 

Avoid complaining, looking for faults, or focusing on problems. This potent mindset shift instantly makes you more enjoyable to be around and draws people into your life.

Lock In
Think back on the times when you met someone with a large aura. These people probably had something in common… They live in the present moment and aren’t day dreaming, or are disconnected from the conversation happening around them. When you live in the present moment, you can focus on what’s in front of you.

This lets you tackle work or obligations with 100% focus, creating a better outcome. Presence also allows you to give your relationships all your attention at the moment, making people feel heard and connected.

If you’re constantly thinking of the future, you’ll feel anxious and unhappy in the moment. Presence can be a natural remedy, allowing you to access your full potential.

Have a mission
A sense of purpose or mission is one of the most significant factors that contribute to a powerful aura. Men can become aimless and fall into common pitfalls without something greater to pursue.

Instead, create a vision for what you want out of life and set goals to achieve it. This will keep you grounded in the moment, helping you make better decisions. You’ll be less likely to waste your time on ineffective activities that don’t empower you. 

Start with something simple if you don’t know where to start, like improving your 100m dash, cooking something new every week, or gaining/losing 10lbs. Be sure it aligns with your values and excites you to wake up each morning.

Tap into your aura
It might have started as a trend, but we all know the difference between a strong and weak aura. Leveling up your aura isn’t just about being smooth; it’s multiple mindset shifts that make you a more influential man.
