“Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.”  ~Peter T. Mcintyre

We feel powerful and courageous when feeling confident.  A confident person can have positive dealings with authority figures and feel more self-assured in conversations with others in everyday life.  This can help to resolve disputes and open the lines of communication in all relationships. When you keep your chin up, shoulders back, maintain eye contact, and directly face the person you are speaking with, others will interpret this body language as self-assurance, take you seriously and treat you with respect.

When we express confidence and courage in our interactions with others, we demonstrate our belief in ourselves  thus eliciting respect from others. Even if we don’t feel very confident, simply pretending to be strong and self-assured can make us feel that way. Repeated practice will encourage your confidence to grow, and it will eventually become a natural part of your personality.  Confidence  helps you feel more in control of any interaction and can positively change the dynamics of relationships.

Today while I was visiting Mom at her nursing home, a kind gentleman was in the wheelchair besides her.  I knew him as a very talented piano player providing entertainment for the residents.  Last year he became ill and was admitted to the facility.  Now he is unable to speak or move, communicating  with his eyes only.  His daughter, in from Munich, was visiting him and we were having a conversation.  I knew he was following it, unable to comment and I said to Peter, “we are speaking with our eyes and listening with the ears of our heart.”  His eyes lit up, and his daughter told me he liked my comment..

It is so important in our communication to combine body language with our verbal communication.  It adds another dimension of comprehension, and can be quite helpful and effective in getting points across.

Effective communication is a learned skill.  If you or someone you love needs help with that,  you may contact me for a 30 minute complimentary phone consult that we can arrange through email or phone.  Stay tuned for some workshops around this topic and let me know if your organization is interested in hosting the  workshop  “Communicating Effectively”.
