Tips to improve your body language

-Thread-
Tip 1:

DONT FUCKING CHEST BUMP.

It looks fake.

Instead focus on having a straight back.

Your chest will de facto be bumped without looking fake.

Plus, it's actually healthy for your back so take care of that body so it can speak louder.
Tip 2:

Move slowly, deliberately and take space.

Be comfortable with your body movement, don't be too quick as it shows insecurity.

Instead take your time to move, think about your movements and execute them with grace rather than hurry.
Walk slow, move slow and with intention.

This breeds both confidence and certainty, which affects the rest of your body language.

Don't focus on the micro shit, focus on being comfortable with your body and not being ashamed of yourself.
Be natural, intentional and cerebral.

Don't let your reflexes dictate your moves.
Tip 3:

Open posture at all times?

Fuck no.

You need to alternate.

You can't be open to everyone, it signals seeking validation.

Instead learn to alternate open positions and closed positions.
As opposed to what most people will tell you, it's not always good to face your interlocutors.

In fact, it's often beneficial for you to look away, stand next to your interlocutor or halfway facing them.
This will automatically put you in a position of power if you do it well.

The person in front will be confused by the contradictory messages and will try to seek a more genuine connection, thus putting themselves in a weak position and seeking your eye contact and attention.
Disclaimer:

Know when to do this.

Know when it's useful and know when it's useless.

If you have nothing to gain from the conversation then simply be genuine.
If you're in a conversation that involves 'power mind games' (examples: flirting or discussing work with a colleague) then you definitely can use the alternating body language method.
One last thing:

Don't abuse these tricks.

Stay cerebral.

Work on your general confidence and all of this will become natural to you.
Tip 3:

Most people can't read body language, they'll only feel it.

You'll be manipulating their subconscious, something they can't put their finger on. So make sure you don't show all your cards at once by betraying your body language through the words you might say.

How to Fix Your Shit On Your Own

-Thread- Image
Let's cut the bullshit.

Here is most people's problem:

Either they have zero self-awareness.

Or they get lost in overthinking.

Solution?

Active and methodical self-reflection.

Let's see how this works.
The difference between Self-Reflection is Overthinking is the following:

One solves problems; The other creates more of them.

No need to say which is which; you've guessed.

Let's ditch overthinking and consider it doesn't exist.

Let's focus on self-reflection.

Body Language is NOT What You Think It is

-Thread-
For most people, body language revolves around microexpressions that say everything.

They're wrong.

Body Language is more than that.

It's actually a communication method (duh it's a language).
Here is the thing:

Everyone understands/feels it.

But rare are those who know how to speak it.

Most will just be victims of their body language.

Your body language doesn't always contradict your words.

But your body language amplifies or hinders the effects of what you say.

THE SECRET KEY TO MAKE EVERYTHING EASY

-Thread-
Learning how not to care was THE turning point in my life.

Minding your own fucking business and focusing on your own well-being is definitely the highest ROI
The thing, I'm not telling you to be sociopaths, unless you are one already, you will empathize with people, feel shit.

The trick is to simply ask yourself why should I care?

It's really that simple.

This is a question you should be asking yourself often.

Death sentence makes sense when it comes to pedophiles.

You can't change my mind.
@FrazzleDazzzled there, I said it
Just lost 20 pedophile followers after this tweet.

Feels good to dissociate with the evil forces

Choices ARE destiny.

They are the exact thing that shapes your destiny and directs you to a future or another.

Choices are all what life is about.

They are the very reason behind both Ws and Ls, success or failure.
It often doesn't come down to one big choice but rather the compound effect of the small ones. It's the choices that we make on the micro level that can either set us up to succeed or fail.
