Besides reading Men’s Health every month, you could also think about the happiest moment in your life. Confidence is about focusing on a positive emotion and letting that generate positive body language, says Nick Morgan, PhD, a communications consultant who has advised politicians and Fortune 500 CEOs. “Research from MIT shows that when people believe they’ll be successful, their body language conveys confidence.” Before an important meeting, think about a moment when you were truly successful. Engage all your senses, says Morgan. “Remember sounds, smells, tastes, colours and feelings associated with that moment, such as your first promotion.” Then you’ll stand straighter, radiate energy and wow everyone around you.
