Today, this article is all about making confident and charismatic impressions.
Why is this so important? Because if you make a positive impression when first meeting someone, the rest of your relationship will be influenced by it, thereby tipping the scales in your favor.
On the other hand, a lousy first impression can prove almost impossible to overcome, often deciding the outcome of a meeting, job interview, or first date even if the rest of the interaction went pretty well.
So how can we make a charismatic and confident first impression?
As we covered in the previous articles, we know that people will jump to conclusions about others with very little information to support their gut feelings, and that we tend to trust the nonverbal over the verbal. So, if your body language is anti-charismatic, it doesn’t matter how great your message is.
If you display high confidence through your body language, people will tend to assume that you have something to be confident about. People will simply accept what you project. And any increase in the amount of confidence your body language projects adds to your charisma factor.
Mark my words, confidence equates to certainty in the minds of others. And people pay for certainty.
So let’s dive in to how to broadcast confidence with your body language, and in a way that’s perfectly balanced with the warmth you learned in the previous emails.
Now you know what confidence can look like. Throughout these emails, you’ve been absorbing a host of new practices, mindset shifts, and new ways of being. Practice them and they’ll become a part of who you re rather than a set of skills you’re learning.
Your most important account isn’t your bank account, but your confidence account! Confidence opens doors, seals deals, and forges new relationships.
