Think of each interaction as a mini-battle – your eyes against theirs.
As long as you’re smiling and blinking, you won’t come across as creepy…unless, of course, you’re actually a creep.
This is probably the hardest step of all, as you’ve probably spent years and years developing poor posture without even thinking about it. Seriously, I hate being in front of even a small crowd.
Spend a month making a concerted effort to have better posture however, and you’ll be well on your way to a more confident appearance. However, at my old job I was put on stage in front of thousands of people to introduce bands and I sounded like I belonged up there. By taking a deep breath, slowing down, and practicing.
In order to stay on target, I actually hung a “POSTURE!
” post-it on my bedroom door so I wouldn’t forget each morning.
Today I’m going to teach how you to appear more confident. Because confidence is one of the most important skills in life that you can acquire (other than learning to use the Force, obviously).
Now, I’m not teaching you this stuff just so you can become some sleazy pickup artist.In your head it might seem way too slow, but out loud it’s just right.People don’t smile enough these days, so we’re bringing it back. Unless you work at home in your underwear and only interact with your cat (my day is way different than that – shut up), you probably have quite a few conversations with people on a daily basis: When was the last time you looked somebody in the eye until THEY looked away first?If you’ve always been shy, the first few times doing this will be absolutely nerve-wracking – power through it.Once you start to be the non-flincher consistently, you’ll quickly learn that everybody else is nervous as hell too and will quickly look away given enough time.Here’s how you can get started: If you have trouble pulling your shoulder blades back, try doing two back exercises (say, lat pull downs and dumbbell rows) for every one chest exercise in your workout.
