1. Open Up
|Talk to me. I'm wide open.|
2. The I'm-not-sorry Posture
|If loving you is wrong then I don't want to be right!|
You don't have to be a super model or the next Brad Pitt to pull off a beautiful smile. All you have to do is relax your face a bit and think happy thoughts. Also, the benefits of smiling are endless: it makes you look twice as attractive; it's contagious and can brighten anyone's mood; and it's another invitation for people to talk to you and even be your friends. So smile more and think less. Let smiling be your key to success.
4. Electrify with a Touch
This can be tricky especially when you're not sure if the person's open enough to being touched. A safe measure is to check their reaction as you approach them. If they step, lean, or look away as you move closer then most probably they're not comfortable being touched. Otherwise proceed to the next key sign of confidence in body language: electrifying with a touch. I say electrify because it's no exaggeration that touching someone's forearm or patting them on the shoulder can give shocking results in terms of getting a positive reply and being more convincing.
5. Eye Contact
|I'm looking at you.|
It only takes three seconds to make a first impression and body language plays an essential role in making an impact on your first encounter. Remember, it's not so much as what you say or what you wear, but more on how you say it and how you bring yourself.
