Fake It Till You Make it: 10 Ways to Feel Confident (Even When You Aren’t) | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
Many people’s confidence naturally wavers from day to day, leaving them too timid or confused at just the wrong time.

 

Is your self-confidence natural, or a daily struggle?

 

Many people’s confidence naturally wavers from day to day, leaving them too timid or confused at just the wrong time. Whether you are naturally confident or could use some better eye contact with your life, setting in place a few simple strategies goes a long way to stoke your inner confidence.

 

If you think you’re not especially smart or capable, or that failure is a given no matter how hard you try, you’re right.

 

And if you believe you’re brilliant and can accomplish anything you set your mind to, you’re right.

 

Amplifying your inner confidence is like any other skill you develop; you can do it in a blink. Day by day, step by step, you will get closer to your goals. No one runs a marathon fueled by decision alone.

The Power of Nonverbal Communication

The Power of Nonverbal Communication | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

You have no doubt heard the proverb—Actions speak louder than words.

It’s true. Your body is a crucial part of communicating your inner feelings. Of course, we can’t communicate ideas, thoughts, and plans without words. However, the way people interpret those words is tremendously influenced by our non-verbal communication.

In her research, Dr. Isa Engleberg (Professor of Speech at Prince George College) has suggested that between 60 and 70 percent of all meaning—understanding—is derived from our body language.

What is body language? It’s a form of non-verbal communication consisting of facial expressions, eye movements, gestures, and posture. Here are a few examples:

Face: smiling shows happiness; frowning shows disapproval.
Eyes: attentive gaze shows interest; rolling the eyes shows disgust.
Gestures: nodding the head shows agreement; tapping fingers on table shows boredom or impatience.
Posture: leaning forward shows eagerness, acceptance, or interest; slumped over shows discouragement...
