Episode 286 - How Your Height And Weight Affect Persuasion And Influence
Does appearance matter? We are all taught not to judge each other by appearance. But at the end of the day we all end up judging each other subconsciously and and a lot of that is based on your physical appearance. The wrong judgment means your ability to influence decreases. 

Do you look athletic, tall, fat or fit? It all changes the way we get judged. The shape and look of your face and body will also affect judgments. I know it is not fair, but it is time to deal with reality. 

Your appearance is judged by your positive and negative characteristics. Find out what is being judged by others. What is hurting your credibility and lifetime earnings? What can you learn and to be more persuasive? Listen to this week’s podcast to find out!
Are You Credible In The Eyes Of Your Prospect?

Credibility is a huge aspect of influence. You could be the smartest person in your field or even the most qualified, but if that is not the perception, there is no credibility. You have to be careful about how you explain and exhibit your credibility. If you launch into a laundry list of your accomplishments or of your education and titles, you might be perceived as a self-centered.

You can transfer (borrow credibility) from others. Since trust and credibility is at an all-time low – sometimes the only option is to borrow credibility from others. Remember even though you are a good trustworthy person, it does not mean people trust you. Join me for this week’s podcast on how to borrow credibility in any situation.
