You can reveal yourself as a confident person even without having to use words.
To gain new understanding and skills in body language, you may participate in Body Language Training Course from pdtraining delivered in Auckland and other cities in New Zealand.
Confidence is an important quality that allows a person to achieve more in life and also to manage relationships better. If you reveal confidence through your body language, you not only create a good impression on people, but also subconsciously reinforce the belief to yourself that you are a confident person.
Always keep your shoulders back and stand straight. Do not shrink or expand your body. Allow it to remain as it is. If you have a bad posture, then you may exercise to correct it or consciously practice a good posture. At the very least, keep your shoulders back and your back straight.
Walk as though nobody is watching you. Retain a good posture while walking. Avoid taking too big or too small steps. Always keep your shoulders back and your posture straight while walking.
Even though you might sometimes need to look down while walking, make sure that you are looking up enough and making eye contact with the people around even if you are not communicating with them in any manner. Making eye contact with others shows that you are unafraid, attentive and confident.
Whenever shaking hands, be it with men or women, always use a firm grip. You may want to match the handshake with a smile. To show extra warmth, you may use both your hands to shake the other person’s hands. Depending on the relationship you have with the other person, you may follow the handshake with other body language gestures such as a hug, a clap on the back, etc.
Smile and Laughter
You must not hide your emotions, but allow them to surface if they are positive. If you feel like laughing, laugh the way you would if nobody were watching you. People can sense genuineness, and if the emotion is positive, they feel it touching them too. Smiling and laughing naturally reveals that you are comfortable with yourself and are ready to share the positives with other people.
As for negative emotions, it is best not to allow it to surface, as it may damage your relationships or work. It is wise to analyse bad feelings rationally to find its cause so that you can remove it and prevent it from occurring again.
When you give someone a pat on the back, a touch on the shoulder or a hug, it shows that you care about the other person and want them to feel good. It also reveals that you appreciate their person. Remember that it is only a positive, confident and generous person that honestly expresses his/her appreciation for another person.
