Do you make first impressions based on what people wear?Choose what I call a “useful” attitude – upbeat, welcoming, enthusiastic, etc. That means making eye contact, if only for a couple of seconds – this unconsciously signals that trust is in the air. Practice saying the word “great” over and over in a mirror using crazy voices until you feel like a giant idiot or you crack up – then say it under your breath to yourself as you approach people. The best way to start a conversation is with a statement followed by an open question. When we feel good about ourselves it affects everything.Just notice the person’s eye color – that’ll do it.

Your posture is an indication of your overall health: humans are hard-wired to seek out healthy mates. It tells people what kind of person you see yourself as.Perhaps a drink in an exclusive guest lounge, followed by a romantic dinner, then a film screening with champagne and popcorn.
