Body language quotes - from my notebooks

To be listened to. Not to be taken for granted. To be valued. To feel that you are making an important contribution. To belong. To feel a part of the greater whole. To be respected for you and what you do.

What can you tell from a handshake?

All I wanted to was to be believed.

The eyes have it.

If you smile make certain to involve your eyes.

Don't be afraid to get in touch with your softer side. Be persistent. Communicate face to face. Mirror body language. Make people feel good about themselves. Don't hesitate, act. Move forward. Strive. Be courageous. Enjoy the hope of life and the indomitable will you have been given.

It is all in the eyes - they pathway within. A smile with the mouth that hardly touches the eyes. Talking to you but the eyes are focussing elsewhere. The eyes barely focussed, the owner inebriated. The eyes spreading the warmth and love of the owner outward for all to see. What a difference that makes!

Hidden values. Hidden virtues.

Look in the mirror and see yourself as others see you.

Be true by 'what is said' who you are, they will be true by you. Deceive or use deceit and distrust with others and that is what you will ultimately receive back.

Like most things this will demand a little bit of work on your part but it will be worth it.
