Can you hear that tiny voice in your world that tells you “the world is yours, you just have to reach out and own it.” To stamp your authority in this world, it’s high time you put on your big girl shoes and kicked the pandemic blues aside. You might feel like the past few years have forced you to limit yourself in a multitude of ways, both literally and metaphorically. But what’s stopping you from going out there and dazzling them with your irresistible charm?
Although there’s no manual that comes with instructions on how to become strong and empowered, here are some tips that might come in handy.
1. Be Yourself
Whether you are out there to earn yourself a promotion or are working hard to establish your own business, how you carry yourself makes a big difference. When dealing with co-workers and clients, your demeanor is important because that’s what they’ll use to establish how they feel about you. So, it is important that you attract people with your authenticity and originality.
2. Be Respectful
Whether you’re talking to the janitor or the CEO of a certain establishment, it’s important to treat people with an equal amount of respect. It is one of the most admirable qualities one can have and it shows that you are a humble and genuine person. When you are in a position of power and yet you continue to treat everyone with respect, it radiates positivity and makes you a very desirable person indeed.
3. Don’t Forget to Make Eye Contact
Establishing and maintaining eye contact might sound insignificant but it is an important body language signal that many people look out for. When you make eye contact, you are seen as a confident individual with a high level of self-esteem.
4. Good Posture
Although you might think sulking in your chair isn’t a big deal, many people tend to notice it. It is not only bad for your back but it also exudes negativity and gives off a less-than-favorable impression. To some people, it might even make you seem lazy.
5. Take it Easy
And last, but certainly not least, it’s important to take it easy– life is a journey and during our time on this planet, we are bound to make countless mistakes. But what is worth remembering is that you learn from these mistakes and not let them define you.
After all, you only live once, right?
