The Power of Body over Mind!


An excellent trick that Jon Salinsky showed us at the Agile Coaches Gathering is how to use your body to control the state of your mind.  If you are feeling nervous or apprehensive before a presentation you can use your body to overcome that feeling.  Try this.  Hold your head a little higher.  Hold your head still.  Hopefully this will lift your shoulders a little.  This will have the effect of changing your overall stance.  You will be holding your body in a more confident position.  Your mental state will be naturally more confident and the people around will be receptive to “status”.  Your body has had a positive impact on your mental state.


Try it.  This technique really works.
