30 days to reaching your potential day eleven: Look people in the eye

Today's task does not require much explanation. Try looking people in the eye whenever you look at them or are speaking to them. This can be more difficult than expected, but try it and see how differently people respond.

Looking people in the eye conveys a lot of things about yourself and the way you feel towards another person. A number of people get intimidated looking at someone in the eye when they speak, so this can help with confidence to an extent also.

Actions:
  • Look people in the eye rather than looking elsewhere when engaging in conversation.
  • Look people on the street in the eye. If they look at you also smile at them and look until they look away. If they ask what you are looking at simply say "Sorry I thought you were a friend of mine".
