All the worlds a stage, And all the men and women merely players. —William Shakespeare
Executive summary of the contents of this blog:
- Nobody knows who you are “deep down;” people seek you out or avoid you based on what you say and how you say it.
- The effect you have on others is manageable; you are not doomed to be unloved and disliked by birthright.
- Actors manage their affect—gestures and expressions—and their words to create every possible personality type. They can be lovable and they can be villainous; so can you.
- This blog is not about spiritual transformation, or self-motivation, or self-help, or inspirational jargon; it is about the fact that your verbal and non-verbal behaviors create your persona—the way you are perceived by others.
- The bottom line is that most of the things we want in life we get from or through others. If we repel others we have one level of success; if we attract them and make them comfortable we have another level of success.
- The “how” to get what you want from life is known; whether you want to behave differently is your choice.
