Charles Horton Cooley, an American sociologist at the start of the 20th century, said:

“I am not who you think I am; I am not who I think I am; I am who I think you think I am“

Confidence has a lot to do with how we carry ourselves! (details)

The key to confidence: Control the space!

  • Move confidently
  • Don’t fidget. Give your hands something to do.
  • Control the tempo
  • Talk slowly / Take pauses
  • Take up plenty of room
  • Shoulders
  • Head positioning
  • Do something with your arms. – Letting your arms hang flat on your side can make you seem stiff and uncomfortable.
  • Turn your shoulders. – Standing straight in front of the camera is not a great pose for most.
  • Roll your shoulders back.
  • It only looks awkward if you make it awkward.

Again, the key to confidence is to control the space!
