What Is Body
Body language is the
unspoken or non-verbal mode of communication that we do in
every single aspect of our interaction with another person. It
is like a mirror that tells us what the other person thinks and
feels in response to our words or actions. Body language involves
gestures, mannerisms, and other bodily signs.
Have you heard of the word Body
English? I remembered 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
myriad of examples of body language that we do and apply to our
lives every now and then, consciously or unconsciously.
So: 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%?
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 our overall
personality 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 is the unspoken tool
to a successful life.
So read on and find out how you can read and utilize body
language and what is body language - the most used yet most
misunderstood secret language in the world.
