In a recent Stanford study on body language, researchers have discovered that we can predict both the ability to learn and level of creativity using body language analysis. The Seven Second rule is quoted so frequently that it appears in Forbes, Business Insider and the Association for Psychological Science as warning that impressions can be made in the blink of an eye!! Personal branding isn’t just about how you look, act, and speak, your beliefs and even your mood influence the impression you make and how you will be perceived in the long term.
Personal branding takes your life philosophy (fundamental beliefs), personality (character, nature, temperament and psychological disposition) and aspirations (career, social, family, community), and turns them into something that is systematic and defined. And don’t kid yourself, even if you have never spent one minute thinking about your personal brand, you have one!! It is seen and felt by the people around you every day.
