What is Body
Would you believe that in real life situations, 60%
to 80% of the messages that we convey to other people are
transmitted through body language and the actual verbal
communication accounts for only 7% to 10%?

you ever heard of the word Body English?
I remember one basketball game when the sportscaster said, "Air
Jordan used a little Body English to coax that ball into the hoop,
as he released the free throw. He meant that the player moved his
hips sideways, as if using mind control, so that the ball will go
through the basket.
Body English is just one of the endless examples of
body language that we do and apply to our lives
every day - consciously or unconsciously.
Body language is the unspoken or non-verbal mode of
communication that we do in every single aspect of
our communication with other persons. Body

Body language involves
gestures, mannerisms, and other bodily signs.
Our ability to use body language in a positive way (and to read
other people's minds through their body language)
separates the men from the boys (or women from girls), and can be a
powerful tool to your personal development. Imagine
creating a great impression for work, business, and love by being
knowledgeable in this not-so-common yet powerful field of study.
It may be the unspoken tool to a successful life.

language in the world.
