When I moved to Atlanta 23 years ago, I knew no one, it was a real challenge to persuade and influence potential employers to hire me. I had some success and many failures. It was when I learned to unleash the power of my presence, that the successes outweighed the failures.
So, how do you do it?
Firstly you need to exude a level of positive energy, you really do need to “let success vibrate within you!”
People are attracted to people who look like they have their lives together.
Also you have to overcome FEAR!
Remember, “courage is not the absence of fear, it is taking action despite the fear!”
You also have to be not only INTERESTED in others, something we have all heard a million times!…..but INTERESTING! What have you read lately, what interesting book can you tell us about. Cultivate your ability to be a fabulous story teller! Succinct, and with a point.
Relax: Remember the less you need something, the more power you have!!
Engage: Verbally and Non Verbally with a level of excitement, energy and enthusiasm.
I spoke with Julene Williams of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta:
Coming UP……Unleash The Power Of Your Presence…..when you face the media or give a presentation!
