Choosing the right role model can improve your life in a vast number of ways. In fact, this is an incredibly potent tool for improving the way you come across to others. The problem? Many of us have either no role models at all, or we have the wrong role models.
There are many different things that will both influence your confidence and also be influenced by your confidence. Confidence is often a somewhat circular subject matter and this can often make it hard to know where to start. This is the case with body language. Being confident gives you better body language.
