Success is Posture – Posture is SuccessOur posture is critical to success. I’m not talking about shoulders back, chin up so much as posturing ourselves as confident, influential people who stand up for what they really believe.In my part-time direct sales business, the word posture is used referring to how we present ourselves and our offering in a very confident way.In my role as a speaker/trainer on the topic of workplace relationships and conflict resolution, I often talk about posture as a personal foundation to improve one’s ability to get along with others and resolve conflict, but regardless of the industry or application, the Olympic podium up on which an athlete steps up to receive a performance medal, is a great analogy.The bronze step is relative to where you are now in your life, career or business. The silver step would be the next level to achieve, and the gold step the absolute best performance and results possible.

For example, if I consider myself a bronze level keynote speaker today, I’m making myself aware that I could be better, and why I’m not. This awareness is critical to improving. I get clear on what I need to do, and be to take the step up to silver. Then repeat that same process to get the gold!Discovery from the activity is why I’m at the bronze level, (my past performance, successes, failures and lessons learned) as well as a clear understanding of the things I need to be doing more and less of, to attain the next level.Let’s take this to a workplace example. The Manager of a department has reasons why they’re currently at a bronze level. Their Posture Podium Activity might look like this:”I’m a bronze level manager because I’ve earned this promotion, I have attended training – to learn how to build productive, peaceful and profitable relationships at work, I’ve approached confrontational conversations with staff when necessary, I’ve reached out for help when needed… etc.” The manager would look at the silver podium spot and list the skills, attributes and successes needed to qualify for earning that next medal on the podium, and likewise for the gold. Now here’s the real magic. The distance between bronze, silver and gold on our podium is our own posture! Our real Work is internal. Compiled with diligent action, accumulated experiences, client testimonials etc., advancing up the scale of success is highly influenced by the belief we have in ourselves.For example, I’ve seen many small business owners, especially women, undervalue themselves, their pricing, and their worth and as a result, sell themselves too short. I believe the toughest distance we need to advance on the podium is only 6 inches between our ears. It’s a mental shift, a new a mental space to move into. But… It’s not ego. It’s not thinking that you’re better than you are, or better than others. It’s being real, and humble about all that you are, and knowing the work ahead of you to become that world-class performer. Without the mental shift, you won’t step up on the podium.

Own the decisions you’ve made with great confidence. Own who you are and who you are not and become content with them. Speak to that and know that you don’t have to justify yourself to people. Allow yourself to be who you really want to be, and free your mental state to chase that silver or gold metal that you so desire.So, it’s high time to just step up your posture from bronze to silver and then set your sights on gold!My activity process to work on increasing one’s posture is an amazing investment… (notice my posture in that statement)
