    My 18 yr old son teached me this and he never taken this class. He always says:
    “If you around the rich and famous, stand up straight and feel like a rich and famous. When you surrounded by children in a park, play like a child in the park. They don’t and never will know who you really are (they don’t care)but they will perceive you as you want them to perceive you. It’s all in your body language”

    For me subconscious mind is the most powerful tool that helps to create life that you want. I always underestimated it's power but now I am using it to identity subconscious limitations, fears, etc and transform it and change my reality( health, money, relationship etc)

    Body language is a catch-22. If you've never been made aware of it, it works just as described. When you are aware of how it works then there becomes a hodgepodge of unintentional and intentional postures. What if a person like me is purposely being ambiguous with my body language to force people to conversate with me? What if a person is over using body language bc they don't want to talk. As a guy I have walked up to people whose posture looked poor but when we started talking it the thing about body language is everyone has the Rosetta Stone, we're all using our own way, and no overall interpretation can be totally correct. I think it's best to communicate, if someone can't communicate, it's not your fault.

    My take:
    Feeling Weak vs Feeling Strong body language
    Weak (don’t do it):
    1) Arms are folded
    2) Shoulders are folded forward/down
    3) Head’s down, looking down
    4) Your weight’s on one leg (when standing)
    5) No smile
    Strong (do it)
    1) Arms are unfolded / open
    2) Shoulders are unfolded up/back
    3) Head’s up, looking in front of yourself
    4) Your weight’s on both legs (when standing)
    5) Smile
    Don’t use “Push away body language”.
    When got a compliment just:
    1) put your arm to your heart
    2) and say “thank you”
    (don’t use all the other awkward gestures you usually do)

    Not compelling at all. Big superficial generalities of which outcomes highly depends on the environment and the people you are interacting with. Even the speaker does not seem at ease. She definitely forces herself to have specific attitudes which make her body language weird and fake. She is clearly pretending to be what she is actually not: self confident.

    how to show instant purpose body language to get faulty reads. I used this the other day. I gulped to show fear. my master body language reads took it as I'm worried of the current situation. they were incorrect instantly. my gulp was a much deeper thought. it was a protection gulp in regards of how many people do I need to take out to protect my mother. its fun being me

    This was super interesting to me because compliments is where I changed my life. I felt awful about myself and one day in school (I'm proud that I figured this out on my own in such early age) that I would change little things and I started with compliments. I had noticed that when someone complimented me "you look pretty today" my response was "no I dont.." and I realised that it is so rude to the other person to reject their lovely opinion that is theirs. So I chose to say thank you even when I felt like I disagreed and it was the beginning of a long journey going from pessimist to optimist, and broken spirit to confident, and I am finally figuring out how to get past my anxiety into handling an extrovert world. Another key was to find things I liked about myself as a person so that even when my self esteem was low there was at least something in my core that I could remind myself when needed. I also started to name 3 good things that happened that day at the end of every day before sleep, and started to see sleep as rebooting the system with a clean slate every day. I have corrected negative self talk until it gave up, and uncrossing my arms is now next on my list of "road to success with self." :)

    she is wrong, when you stand with your weight on one leg it is a sign of power because it shows you are are not afraid to be vulnerable, while when you are having your weight equally on two legs it is a sign that you are ready to fight or run away, either case you are not comfortable.

    Thank you so much for this. I never knew that I needed this video till I watched it! I always think of myself as an awkward person, I mean I don’t know how to receive compliments, I don’t know how to start up a conversation , even my laugh! I don’t how to laugh because I’m so afraid of people stereotyping me, so instead of that I just smile. It became so hard for me. But thanks to you now I think and for the first time that I’ll be able to change. I promise you when I achieve what you’ve just shared I’ll comeback and update my comment.

    Mental dissonance: arms do not do that (crossing arms with opposite hands). Tone had messages and body language also. After a little it's going to be easier to accept the new program and not keep arguing with her. It feels empowered to raise your shoulders and not by slumping them down. Push away body language: in a compliment brush your pants or shoulders instead of thank you and taking it inside your heart. One change in body language does more than one thing mentally.
