Whether you like to agree or not, someone is looking at you and making judgments. Someone is looking at how you walk. Your posture, composure & body carriage. How you smile, talk, laugh, get angry, dress (both when you dress up and when you dress down). It is tempting to think that these things don’t count but they do.
You are always sending out signals. And some of your observers have the power to promote you based on their perception of you. But they want a reason why it should be you over others. And they are looking out for these little cues.
You can influence their judgement of you, positively, and to a great extent. By being conscious of all your actions and your inactions. By not taking any moment for granted and putting your best foot forward always.
That’s how to win!
