being successful is hard work it’s not an easy job and if you think that being successful is just about how you think and how you work and how intelligent you are how good you are at your work but it’s also about your body language well today we’re going to talk about the habits the body language Habits of Highly successful people now if you can master these body language habits you are way ahead on your path to success so hi my name is Rima and welcome to skillopedia and today we’re going to talk about the body language Habits of Highly successful people the first body language habit that I want to talk about is posture yes you need to learn how to sit up straight now slouching in your chair you know putting your elbows on the table covering your face with your hands playing with your chin or tugging at your hair all these can be signs of disrespect or disinterest so the person you are talking to me feel like you don’t like the person you don’t respect the person you’re not interested in the conversation that’s going on and this can prove contrary to your success but if you sit up straight you know maintain a good straight posture put your shoulders back have a small formal smile on your face then you will appear more self-confident and people will start taking you seriously you might even exude some power from your personality so always remember the more space your body occupies the more successful you will look and if you just you know kind of bunch up into this person who’s slouching was becoming and rolling himself or herself into a small ball then obviously you’re going to appear very timid very under-confident so now slouch it makes you look smaller and less confident make sure that you’re projecting power and confidence sit up straight another habit that I have noticed among really successful people really powerful people even is that they know how to use their gestures and actions correctly now if you’re somebody who’s very excited all the time and very animated with his or her gestures and wants to move around you know his or her hands all the time to be so excited and so interested in conveying the information that you have to give out trust me I think you’re going a little overboard you need to tone down a little bit if you want to appear confident and powerful use gestures that use them well use them at precise points pause so that your gestures can actually be noticed by people and that way people are going to start realizing that what you say is what you mean suggestions can go on long way in actually reiterating what you’re saying like for example if you really believe in a concept and you do something like I really believe in this concept people are going to think you’re a little mad at the same time if you just timidly say I really believe in this concept people are going to think the truth is interested but if you use the right gesture like I really believe in this concept people are going to take you seriously so remember those gestures that you’re making all the time with your hands they need to be very calculated very formal and very now the other thing I noticed people do is especially when they’re sitting at a meeting is they just cross there on places like this or like this or even like this now when you cross your arms okay your body language says a lot of things one thing is that you doubt the person in front of you the second thing is that you’re not open to different suggestions or new ideas and the third thing is that you’re not happy to be in this situation you kind of cross you’re kind of upset or unhappy with the situation another thing that comes across you know when you sit with your arms crossed is that you’re not a flexible sort of a person you’re kind of rigid and you believe it’s either my way or the highway well all of these things can actually create a negative impression this simple thing that you can do is uncross your arms just sit with open arms you’ll come across as a person who’s so much more pleasant a person who’s so much more open and a person who’s so much more confident and happy to be in the situation that he or she is in and if you can add it add in a little smile a pleasant one okay and open up and uncross your legs even you will come across as a stable person for interested in doing good works now did you ever think that a simple small thing like uncrossing your arms can make such a big difference trust me it can and I have met many successful people who sit with their arms open with their energy is receptive and they get some great work done my next point sometimes doesn’t apply to men because men end up having shorter hair it’s more for women I’ve seen a lot of women who keep playing with their hair while talking some of them even look down at their hair like this does not make you look a little mad a little lost a little weird and there are people or women especially who are touching their hair like this and talking now that makes you look like you’re seeking a lot of attention or you feel insecure that you need your hair to kind of hold on to well all of this should stop right away I’m telling you stop touching your hair hands need to go down you need to be confident look the other person in his or her I talk work talk formal stuff and that’s it touching your hair fiddling with your hair grooming your hair for men especially going on room in your hair while thinking tapping your fingers on your head all of this makes you look very unprofessional and it’s a complete nono and if you want to be like one of those successful people you need to be maintaining a very very dignified posture and you need to stop touching your hair would you like it if I spoke to you like this or would you like it if I spoke to electors I’m sure not it’s very important to have a smile on your face when you’re having a conversation that this could be a personal conversation or a professional conversation now when I say smile on your face I’m not saying that you should have a goofy smile that makes you seem really dumb and laws like this you need to have a simple formal pleasant smile on your face you don’t need to laugh out loud or giggle or any of that stuff you need Johnny to crack jokes and you know make things really awkward you just need to have a pleasing smile on your face although smiling it everything doesn’t really support the idea that you have a strong character but having a smile on your face makes you come across as a pleasant person and when was the last time the chip team enjoy working with a pleasant person right everyone enjoys working with a pleasant personality so in order to keep your first personality pleasant and professional at the same time a small smile which makes your face seem all open and pleasant is the best thing you can do to keep the frowns away keep the giggles away focus on a simple smile that will take you miles ahead in your career the next point that I want to discuss with you is I contact the eye contact is the absolute basic about body language we’ve been listening to things regarding eye contact ever since we were school kids right now I contact is very important very important to have eye contact with each person that you’re talking to because that makes you you know look trustworthy and confident but when I say eye contact I’ve seen a lot of people get very intense about eye contact and this is the kind of eye contact they try if you will stare at somebody with really intense eyes like this you’re going to scare the person or you’re going to come across somebody who is absolutely and totally insane at the same time if you’re somebody who can’t maintain eye contact at all like imagine if I speak to you like this because I just can’t seem to meet your eye then you come across as a very shifty person as somebody who’s nervous somebody who doesn’t know what he or she is talking about so what you need to do is you need to maintain the right kind of eye contact you need to maintain a friendly eye contact that’s confident at the same time it makes the other person trust you okay so the way I’m looking at you right now that’s pretty much the kind of eye contact that works in all environments be its professional or personal and either the best part of an eye contact it sends a message to your listener that you care that you’re listening that you’re interested in the conversation and you delete on the trust of your listener and that is very very important in any conversation my next point regarding body language is about handshakes that’s right now what’s the first thing we do when we meet someone new especially professionally we shake hands right this is an age-old tradition that’s been going on for years and it always worked because the right kind of handshake can create the right kind of professional relationship or the right kind of friendship okay so never give a weak handshake it doesn’t mean that you have to give a bone-crushing handshake wherein the person you’re shaking hands with was like ouch fat hot make sure that your handshake is thumb it’s not wishy-washy and weak at the same time it’s friendly uncomfortable for the other person because your handshake is something that will make the other person feel like yes you’re happy to meet that person you’re happy to do business with that person at the same time you’re a confident and secure person the next time you’re shaking hands don’t treat it like a gesture that is just by the way or it’s just ordinary make sure you’re focusing on how you shake hands with people and make sure that your handshake is full so wasn’t that interesting different habits different kind of body language habits of successful people you need to start practicing all of these and you’ll actually see your personality transform you will screw into this really confident in sure person if you practice all these body language habits absolutely right I
