Even if you are not saying anything at all, you can communicate a lot through your gestures and actions. You can always let your body do the talking, and send clear messages to others without uttering a single word! While body language can be effectively used to display and disclose several emotions without the need of choicest words, sometimes we unconsciously share our state of mind and feelings through our actions and lead the situation in an uncomfortable and negative direction for us.
This is particularly tricky when your gestures and movements display a negative aura about you and make people conceive a negative opinion regarding you. Therefore, it is important to learn not only how to talk and speak effectively, but also how to carry yourself so that you are confident not only in speech, but also in your posture and demeanor. Body language lets you say a lot without using your tongue, so make sure you choose the ‘words’ of your body wisely!
Sometimes, even if we do not mean it, our body can give wrong signals to others regarding our thoughts and opinions. For example, maintaining a slumped and tired figure while in a meeting can display the fact that you are disinterested and bored, and can make the situation difficult to handle. Hence, it is necessary that you not only have an alert mind, but also an alert body!
Body languageis all about controlling the perception of others around you, and it is easy to use it to get a positive impact once you know how to CONTROL your gestures and actions. But before you get to that, you first need to observe yourself, and carefully evaluate HOW and WHAT emotions you display through your body. Your confidence level, nervousness, stress, happiness, distress, anxiety and calmness – everything that you are feeling is visible through your actions.
Therefore, it is important to know how to control these body language signals so that you can stop the negative gestures underway and replace them with positive actions. Once you learn how to control your actions, you can use them to work positively for you and make you appear CONFIDENT even when you are NERVOUS inside, DETERMINED even when you are SCARED inside and HAPPY even if you are STRESSED inside!
So what are these positive bodily actions? Well, for starters, think of how you present and display your feelings when you are confident and elated. Being upright and alert, with your body relaxed and calm can lift the positivity of the situation in just minutes. Using your eyes and hands to communicate and AFFIRM what you are saying can make you appear more convincing and targeted in your approach. Body language is the only language that can be understood and acknowledged all over the world and reach the heart of millions. Therefore, try to warm somebody’s heart with a bright smile and seal a deal with a confident handshake today!
