Ways To Make A Great First Impression In 30 Seconds

The first thirty seconds count. Whether it’s a date or a job interview, our brains make snap judgments about people within seconds of meeting them.
It starts before they even open their mouths. Research shows the first 30 seconds of an interview often determines whether the person gets hired or not.
Most of the time we don’t even realize how quickly we judge people. Our subconscious mind evaluates the person in seconds. Our conscious mind then proceeds to identify clues that validate what we already think.
It’s unfair, but it’s also a fact.
Whether it’s a sales call, a blind date, or a first meeting with future in-laws, if you want things to go well, it pays to be intentional about how you handle the first thirty seconds.

Here are tips to help you close the deal, land the job, get the guy, woo the woman, or win over your future mother-in-law:
Open your body – Before you walk in the door take a minute to take a deep breath, relax your shoulders and straighten your posture. If you walk into the room with open body language you’ll come across as confident and relaxed.
Smile – It sounds obvious, but you’d be amazed at how many people go into a meeting looking like they just smelled something bad. Don’t wait for them to smile at you. Walk in smiling with your mouth and your eyes.
Leave bulky bags outside – Struggling with straps and packages makes you look frazzled and disorganized. If you’re hauling around a thirty-pound Samsonite, discretely drop it by the door before you enter the room. You want the attention on the people, not your stuff.
Make eye contact with everyone – It’s tempting to zero in on the person in charge, but while you’re zooming in, the others feel left out. Upon entering, make direct eye contact with every person in the meeting.
Let them know you’re delighted to be there – A comment like, “ Driving over here, I was thinking about how excited I am about this meeting.” lets them know they’re important to you. You don’t have to suck up, just sincerely share your enthusiasm.
Get them talking within 30 seconds – Don’t start with a monologue. Engage them immediately by asking a question. Nodding with eye contact as they answer helps you establish an immediate connection.
Be prepared, not scripted – Plan some comments in advance, but don’t script things out so much that you sound like a robot. If their company just launched a great ad campaign, plan to mention it. Knowing you have something for later gives you more confidence in the beginning.
Ask an unexpected question – You can ease tension by asking something off- beat like, “They say the world is going to end today, what do you think we should order for lunch? Only do it if you’re comfortable with humor.
Don’t fidget – As tempting as it is to tug at your waistband or tie, don’t. When they’re talking look directly at them, don’t fiddle with your socks.
Be authentic – Planning doesn’t mean being fake. People can spot a phony. The goal of preparation is to give you the confidence that allows the real you to shine through. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can do is to be yourself.

Getting ex boyfriend back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. Am Maria 21yr from England, my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.
