Many people think that manners are less important in today’s busy, fast-paced world because there just isn’t time for it. Not the case! In our modern world, how you treat others and your actions affect how people perceive you. Statistics reveal that 55% of our first impression is based on the way we look, 38% on the way we present ourselves and only 7% is based on what we have to say.
Have you ever been in an uncomfortable situation socially and didn’t know what to do? Have you ever been out to eat with clients or friends and hesitated because you didn’t know if you were using the right utensil? Have you ever wondered what you could have done better during your interview to get a job? What you say, how you act and how you hold yourself can affect how people think of you. Whether you are looking to improve your skills in your personal life or at work, it never hurts to make sure you are representing yourself in the most positive light possible at all times. None of us are perfect but sometimes life is just easier when you are comfortable knowing that what you are doing is correct.
