Did you know that how you feel influences how you act?
If you’re feeling blue, you’re more likely to slouch and speak in a monotone way.
If you’re feeling awesome, you sit a little taller and smile, and that makes your tone sound more friendly.
If you want to be perceived as successful and professional, then you should aim to feel successful and professional.
