Are you aware that you make up your mind about someone within 7 seconds of meeting them?   According to research, a large potion of communication is through our body language which often speaks louder than words.   Whether we realize it or not our true feelings are coming out through our eye contact, facial expression, body position, and overall attitude.  Along with these aspects a chain of emotions are triggered that range from comfort to fear.   
Take a minute to think about past encounters.  What about when you first met your spouse?  A job interview that went well or flopped?  A friend now who was a stranger to you when you first were introduced.  Try to recall those first 7 seconds.  Do you remember how you felt or what you thought?  You read them and they read you.  Believe it or not you do relay an over-all statement.  This message will either make people want to be with you or want to avoid you.   So what are your personal assets, physical appearance, energy level, your speech rate, pitch, tone, your gestures and animation, eye expressions, and ability to hold the interest and attention of others?  All these will form an impression.
Think about three times in your life that you know you made a good impression and then try to recall what made those times successful. You were, no doubt, committed and knowledgeable about your subject and probably so excited about it that you weren't the least bit self-conscious.
You have within you what it takes to make a good impression.  Next week I'll talk about details about those qualities and how to best manage those first 7 seconds.
