Tommy Shelby from Peaky Blinders is a quiet, introverted character but also highly charismatic.
We can learn eight habits from him to instantly command more respect from the people around us.
Don't be in a rush. It instantly gives the sense that you're above feeling daunted.
Moving slowly and comfortably in a situation where people would be stressed shows you don't feel intimidated or pressured.
Holding eye contact all the time during conflict can be a mistake as it can escalate the tension if neither of you is willing to break.
The goal isn't to never break eye contact but to know what your behaviour signals to other people.
You can project confidence without speaking. Being non-reactive in situations where most people would lose it shows you feel confident in your ability to handle whatever is happening.
The goal here isn't to fake that you're okay while freaking out on the inside. It's to cultivate a genuine deep internal confidence.
Gail up your hand gestures when you're speaking to more people.
Show conviction with your words. When you speak about your plans for the future, don't say "I hope" or "I want" but "I will".
Show conviction with your tone. Turning your tone upward makes statements sound like questions. This gives the impression that you're unsure of yourself.
For example, focussing on "I" is not very persuasive if you want a raise or promotion from work. So instead, focus on the value you can add to the company by playing at a higher level.
Work with your boss to create a concrete list. At the same time, go out and get other job offers. Then, if they want to back out from the agreement, you can tell them that you want to stay, but you have other offers that pay more.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
