These 5 Body Language Secrets Could Put You on the Road to a Million Dollars

There’s a reason “The Room Where It Happens” is one of Broadway hit Hamilton’s standout songs: the track’s theme -- longing to be included among key decision-makers in the place in which decisions are made -- is timeless.The right type of body language can help get you into that room. Confident body language is a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts: The more you project success, competence and resources, the more those things will likely be awarded to you.

I roll over in bed and reach for my phone to check the time. “It’s 8:30 a.m.!” I say to myself. “How did that happen? I must have turned my alarm off and fallen back to sleep.” After some deep breaths, I manage to drag myself out of bed, get dressed, and make breakfast. At work I try to focus, but most of the day I just sit in a fog, struggling to stay awake. When I head home, I lack the motivation to go to the gym, do errands, or hang out with friends. Instead, I fall asleep on the couch shortly after dinner, only making it to bed after some gentle prodding from my dog.

But surely it’s right for me.” What happens, though, when the entity who doubts the validity of your educational choice is not your counselor, not your parents, not even you—it’s your thesis adviser?
