Our body language does not remain the same. It changes with how we feel about ourselves. Observe you body language when you have achieved an important milestone in your life. Your body language will reveal your positivity and enthusiasm. It shows that you can consciously practice control of your body language to create a particular impression on others.
Observing and Adopting
Observe the body language of those who influence you positively. It can be a television star, a person you are awed by or a role model. What do you like in that person’s personality? Observe their facial expressions, and the way they carry themselves. It is even better to observe many people, preferably those closer to your industry, to adopt the best mannerisms.
You may adopt qualities, but try to create your own individual style. Essentially, you would want to exhibit confidence, positivity and intelligence through your body language, and it is best if you do it in your own unique way.
Take control of your body language. Instead of allowing your body language to dictate how you present yourself, alter your body language at will. It will need practice at first, but you will begin to see its effect almost immediately. As we all subconsciously take clues to read others, you will not only be giving positive signals to others, but also to yourself.
It is best to consciously alter your body language when in public and see its impact on others. It will help you to discover how to best use it.
Improve Your Self-Image
Many times, we irrationally build a certain image of ourselves in our mind. The way we see ourselves is influenced by childhood experiences, how others behave with us, our successes, our failures, and our environment. To build a positive and confident self, you need to identify and remove the irrational, negative and binding thoughts about your self. A change in perspective about you, your capabilities and your life will help you to develop confidence and positivity.
Practice, Practice, Practice
After you have discovered methods to improve your body language to suit your style, you must develop the determination to practice it every day, preferably many times during a day. Your body, till now, is adjusted to a certain body language. To break the habit, you will need to consciously change your body language again and again.
Create a Schedule and Deadline
It is easier to get tasks done after we have developed a system and a time frame to complete them. Choose a schedule that fits your lifestyle so that you can stick to it for a certain time-period.
Reward yourself after you have successfully completed a milestone. Remind yourself of the benefits of putting in the effort now. When you begin to procrastinate, watch a motivational video to gain back the enthusiasm. You will see the reward of your hard work in a more confident, positive and controlled you.
