You walk into the dinner party and all eyes are on you. Youre standing tall, have a smile on your face and everyone is intently listening to what you have to say ... and then you wake up. The ability to make heads turn is something most of us have fantasized about, but in reality, how many of us can actually command a room? Check out these tips to look confident and get noticed in every room you want.

Awareness.
Awareness of the way you present yourself is the first and the most important secret to taking the steps towards making great first impressions and being sure you linger in their minds long after you left. An acute awareness of your posture and your body language is what is going to make all the difference.

Good Posture.
Your posture is often influenced by your emotions, which means if you are feeling intimidated or shy, you might drop your chin, hunch your shoulders forward and avoid eye contact. This is a dead giveaway that you are not feeling comfortable and chances are that others will feel just as uncomfortable in your presence.

The posture of a self-confident, poised person is upright and proud, chin lifted, chest open and quite often a smile. Even when you are feeling slightly intimidated, if you can master the self-assured stature, you will immediately start feeling more confident. In other words you can affect your mood or emotions by simply changing your posture.
Spend a few minutes in front of the mirror and make yourself aware of what your confident stature looks and feels like.

Graciousness.
One of the greatest secrets to being remembered in a positive light is to be gracious. We often get into the habit of asking, How are you? but how often do we pay attention to the answer? By being sincerely interested in the other person, and greeting in a genuinely friendly way, you can be sure to get noticed and remembered.
