Be Confident and Present Yourself As Well As You Can

Wearing our older, comfortable clothes can be all well and good on occasion. Sometimes it is fine to take it easy and not think about how we look, but in truth we present ourselves with greater confidence when we know that we are looking our best. And sometimes appreciating that a little effort can make all the difference to how we feel and how others perceive us can make a major difference to making that effort worthwhile on a more regular basis.

- Face. Taking care of skin, hair and makeup enables us to feel more confident and smart. We can relax knowing that we are presenting a composed, self-contained appearance and that persona can be a useful shield at times. We can be confident knowing that however we are feeling inside we are projecting an outer calm exterior. Often when people have been through a difficult time or had a change of lifestyle they use it as an opportunity for a new look. It often improves confidence levels and inspires a renewed sense of energy and a fresh outlook.

- Underwear. Wearing good quality underwear can be a luxurious secret. The special feeling, knowing that lovely fabrics and sensuous garments are being worn underneath ones regular day clothes can be a rather glamorous feeling. Wearing ones ‘best’ underwear for oneself can be an important choice, rather than the usual older items.

- Clothes. It is not unusual for people to have cupboards that contain lovely new clothes, some with the tickets still on them. Some of these items may be being saved for a special occasion that will justify wearing them. The problem can be that often these items become forgotten about, or our clothes size changes, or they become out-of-date. Many of these clothes may well end up at the charity shop, given away for someone else to buy.

- Shoes often make an outfit. Many women are passionate about their shoes and have many pairs of elegant boots, shoes and sandals. Often though the old shoes are still worn for day-to-day use and trainers are comfortable for casual wear. There are hundreds of pounds being regularly spent on shoes that are stored on shoe racks and in boxes. Getting them out to wear can make an ordinary outfit feel extra special and give it a new lease of life.

- Jewellery. Many people have fabulous jewellery, some received as a gift, other pieces bought to go with a particular outfit. Sometimes though remembering what we own and which special pieces can add glamour to an outfit can require too much of an effort, especially if we are in a hurry. It can be a help to take the time to regularly go through the jewellery drawer, reminding ourselves which pieces are modern and quirky and which are more traditional and classy. Otherwise the same pieces can end up being worn all the time. Putting some different jewellery with an outfit can give it a completely fresh look

- Body. How we feel about our body can be a major factor to our confidence levels. Taking care to eat well and nutritiously, to regularly exercise and keep fit, to keep ourselves clean, fresh and well-maintained are all significant factors in feeling good about ourselves. Learning to listen to our body, visit for health checks and keep ourselves as well as possible all feature in feeling healthy, confident and able to be the best we can be.

Can Lying Help You Win More Negotiations?

When asked if lying helps win negotiations, I say it depends on several factors. It depends on what is considered a lie and how such is perceived by the other negotiator.

As an example, some negotiators don’t consider having told a lie if they omit information or they misquote it due to faulty memory; the latter will be classified as a mistake by them. Based on how that negotiator has positioned himself (i.e. trustworthy, versus someone to be cautious of), he may be forgiven for an omission or chastised by the opposing negotiator.

  • Consider What’s Normal:

Consider what’s normal in the opposing negotiator’s world to assess how believable your offer may appear. When it comes to lies, most negotiators will base their perspective on what’s normal for them; they’ll do so based on their culture and background while considering the same about yours. From which, they may have preconceived notions as to how truthful or deceitful you’ll be during the negotiation. With that perspective as their backdrop, they may fit you into a category and be less or more forgiving if they sense you’re lying. Thus, if something sounds too good to be true, even if your offer is bona fide, it may be perceived as suspect if that’s their perspective.

  • Positioning for Perception:

To the degree you’re perceived as someone that’s honest, trustworthy, and respectful, you’ll be perceived as someone that can be forgiven if you lie. That perception will be altered based on the number of times you’re perceived as lying and the purpose for which you may be lying. Another factor to consider is the opposing negotiator’s negotiation style or node (i.e. hard, easy, open, closed). Depending on the negotiation style/node, one negotiator may allow you to lie for a longer period of time and not say anything while one with a different style/node may admonish you quicker per your nonfactual statements.

If you make an honest mistake during the negotiation and you sense the opposing negotiator has called your statement into question, correct what might be misperceived sooner versus later. By doing so you’ll project consistency with your pronouncements, which will serve as confirmation per your intent to be truthful.

  • Your Negotiation Reputation:

As you engage in negotiations throughout your life, your negotiation reputation should be carefully crafted. If you acquire a reputation as one that’s trustworthy, you can point to this fact as a reason to be believed. A savvy negotiator will have done her homework on you and gathered such insight prior to entering into the negotiation. In so doing she’ll know that you’re someone that can be trusted, if that’s the case, and be more lenient if a lie is told by you. That leniency in such a case may prove to be the difference between a tumultuous negotiation and one that floats on the wings of ease.

During your negotiation, don’t consider it to be a one-off situation (i.e. once and done). To the degree you learn from the experiences you encounter in a negotiation your negotiation skills will be altered. Thus, if you keep in mind that you’re always negotiating, you’ll also remember that you reap what you sew, but you also sew what you reap. In so doing, never consider a truth to be a lie or a lie to be a truth simply because it becomes an obsession in your mind… and everything will be right with the world.

Remember, you’re always negotiating!
