Projecting Confidence Through Body Language: 3 Tips To Follow

Positive body language is the hallmark of a confident person!

When your self-confidence is reflected in your body language, it makes you unique.  Nonverbal gestures made through body language can give you an extra advantage in the commercial world by presenting you as a strong personality. If you can master this art of connecting with others using only physical gestures without exchanging words, many opportunities will open up in front of you in your professional and personal life.

Proper Body Language Helps To Increase Social Acceptance:

Proper body language projection can multiply your acceptance in the workplace.  The message you want to convey can reach out to more people with the right gestures, facial expressions and proper eye contact. Not only that, but a deep and approachable voice and a decent knowledge about self grooming play an important role in attracting more people to you.  A confident person can make full use of his hands, eyes, feet and surroundings when giving any information or message.  On the other hand, slouching while walking, avoiding eye contact or looking at the floor – these gestures stand in the way of your possibilities.

Always Maintain Eye Contact:

Always maintain eye contact during an important meeting or when passing a business proposal with a client. Direct eye contact is a reflection of your honesty, competence and confidence. Appropriate eye contact conveys the message that your full attention is on the person in front of you and that you respect the opinions of your partner and coworkers. According to experts, direct eye contact is very effective when making tough decisions or expressing one’s opinion firmly during a disagreement.

Use Your Hands In A Correct Manner:

Positive hand gestures are especially useful for improving your verbal communication. You can use your hands in a waving manner to invite others for a dialogue, or you can press your hands together and bend slightly to show respect. Your mental state is expressed on how you position your hands. For example, shaking hands means you are giving a message of friendship and touching different parts of your face with your hands constantly means you are feeling anxious.

Keep The Posture Straight:

Always keep the posture straight.  Awkward postures negatively reflect your personality. Always keep your back straight, raise your neck and keep direct eye contact. Bringing a sense of firmness in body language presents you as a ‘dominant’ self-assertive character with leadership qualities.
