Boost Self Confidence
Confident body language
adopt a confident posture and you feel more confident. You project confidence too.
No one has ever seen a cock crow with its head down. - Alonzo Newton Benn
When you move confidently and carry your body confidently, you not only feel more confident but others assume that you are.
You may be surprised to learn that only 7% of the information you transmit to others is in the language you use. The remainder comes from:
1. 38% How you speak – quality of voice, accent, voice projection, emphasis, expression, pace, volume, pitch etc.
2. 55% Body language – posture, position, eye contact, facial expression, head and body movements, gestures, touch etc.
Whereas people often try to disguise their true feelings in their utterances, they communicate them freely through their non-verbals. When your body language tells a different story from your spoken words, guess which is believed? The answer is, your body language. It imparts eight times as much information.
Pay more attention to how you use your body. Poor movement and posture restricts breathing, tightens the muscles and brings about skeletal disorders.
