I have friends who used to be fat guys who still feel huge even though they have a single digit body fat percentage.If you feel out of place in a situation, everybody around you probably does too.The rest of that class was molded by that presentation, so thanks Deepa for saving my ass!
Once you start to be the non-flincher consistently, you’ll quickly learn that everybody else is nervous as hell too and will quickly look away given enough time.
I’m teaching you because I know how important even a little bit of confidence can be in everyday situations, whether it’s negotiating with your boss for a raise, buying a car, giving a presentation, or meeting your fiance’s parents.
We’re naturally attracted to and will have our opinions swayed by those who have (or appear to have) a lot of confidence.
I used to have awful posture through most of my life (which caused lots of lower back pain).
It wasn’t until I made a conscious effort to focus on standing up straight and strengthening my lower back that the pain went away.
