How to Gain the Attention and Respect you Deserve.
What if I told you there was a way for you to instantly garner more attention without making yourself the king’s fool? What if I told you that the secret to gaining that attention, that presence that turns heads when you enter a room was as simple as paying more attention to your surroundings.
Sounds ridiculous, right? It’s not.
Have you ever had the pleasure of meeting a person who for one reason or another just seemed to draw the attention of everyone around them, without even saying a word?
These people who appear to command attention aren’t born this way. I used to wonder what it would feel like to command the attention of a Queen or King.
I used to wonder, until I found out a little trick from a book I was reading.
At first I was skeptical. I found it hard to believe that the trick was that simple. That was, until I tried it out.
The secret, as it turns out, is in your body language. It also just so happens that you don’t have to force your body language to do anything. What you do instead is use a trick to stay present, in the moment, mindful— however you may refer to it.
In other words, our presence comes us being present.
Don’t believe me? Try it.
First, close your eyes. Set a timer on your watch or phone for exactly one minute.
The reason I love these so much is that you consciously focus on one thing and notice every tiny detail about it. Without having to do anything else our body begins to relax and we become much more aware of the world around us.
You don’t have to take my word for it. Go out there and try it for yourself!
Happen to love reading like me? The title of the book I pulled those exercises from is The Charisma Myth.
