Improving Posture To Boost Confidence.
Have you ever noticed that when you improve your posture, your confidence improves? When I sit up straight, with my shoulders back, and my chin up, I feel better. When I stand with my shoulders back, my chin up, and my hips aligned with my shoulders and walk gently moving my arms naturally, my confidence soars. Improving my posture makes a difference in how I relate to other people.
Posturing Not Just About How I Carry Myself
However, posture is not just about how I carry myself, but it has everything to do with confidence building and that’s what the affirmation this month is all about. As I finish writing the second drafts of both books I still intend to finish this year. (Book 4 of the Locket Saga: Sailing Under The Black Flag and Book Five of the Locket Saga: In the Shadow Of The Millpond) I am also getting ready to launch Book 3 of the Locket Saga: A Coward’s Solace which I intend to launch on August 31, 2015. Posture in this case refers to building the confidence that I need to launch and market my books.
Posturing in this case relates to having the confidence to step out into the world with my book in hand and networking with others to get publicity for this book.
I have a confession to make. I have not been overly confident in my abilities, but that is changing.I know that I am a good writer. I have learned from many of the mistakes that I made with my first books. I have learned how to make each one of by books better as I have written each of them.
So posturing in book writing, first involves knowing that the book that I have written is the best book that it can possibly be.
Posturing With My Appearance
One of my goals for 2015 was the goal that I would not leave the house unless I looked my best. This relates to marketing in that when people see me on the street, they will see me as a confident professional person who is in control of her life. When I leave the house looking my best, that is nothing fake about that. I do feel my best when I leave the house and look as though I cared about how I look.
When I know I look good and feel confident, I am more likely to be able to walk into a business and convince the decision maker of that business that they want my books in their store.
Posturing With Good Online Copy
Another way that I posture, is that when i write I do my best to write good copy online. As an author, that is important because if my online content is not legible and relatively free of mistakes, no one is going to want to read my books because they are likely put together as carelessly as my online content.
Posturing In Other Ways
There are other ways to posture for success than how someone looks. During this month, I will be discussing other ways that I posture for success, how I build my confidence especially as it relates to the idea of marketing my books. I hope this month is as informative to you as I am certain it will be to you.
