There is no more uncertainty in your body language. There's no more demonstration of conflict in your body language. One shoulder this way, one shoulder that way. That will stop. Neck sometime this way, sometime that way, sometime that way, sometime that way. That will change. Your body language will become balanced. That change occurs.

The more someone scowls the more you smile. That change occurs in you. Your voice becomes softer and therefore more effective because it invokes the response of a yes from the listener.
