To think confidently we must act confidently. Sit up straighter, speak a little louder, and create and control eye contact while talking with others. Look people directly in the eyes while talking and look at their eyes or mouth while listening. Keep your feet facing the person being spoken with or listened to while not looking over his or her head. While giving a speech think of each person in the audience as though you are having an individual conversation with him or her. Practice giving undivided, considerate, unselfish, courteous, and genuine attention to other human beings, while being sincerely interested in their thoughts, words, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, intentions, hopes and dreams. Open up toward being vulnerable by allowing yourself to feel their emotions, therefore moving closer toward greatness and a purpose-driven life.
