Women love men of action. Something about a confident and purposeful man can be extremely attractive to a woman.  Your confidence is conveyed through posture and walking is no different. She can get a sense of your confidence through your body language, whether you slouch your shoulders, or look down at the floor, these will all lead her to form a general impression of you.  When you are walking with purpose, an onlooker won’t be able to tell if you are going up to receive an award from the President, or going down the hallway to the bathroom, you just have a look that you know what you are doing… If you have a plan, it allows her to think for herself and not worry about you, which she may do if she feels that you are leading yourself astray.   If you are focused on achieving a goal, a supportive woman will encourage your efforts.  She will be the “President and CEO of your Fan Club”. She will have your goals in mind and your best interest in heart.  Of course — in the same way, you should be supportive of her goals and interests.

A Confident Walk is a Confident Mind.

In the age of information overload, it is necessary to stay focused on your priorities.  When you wake up you need a plan of attack. Make a plan of action every day. Don’t focus too much on low-level details and how you will get there — a simple plan is enough to set the gears in motion. Having definitive goals each day helps build confidence.  At the end of the day, you can say you worked out at the gym, finished your paper, or read five chapters of a book; whether your goal is big or small, you will gain confidence by planning ahead of time and achieving your goals. Making small goals will also help you form the confidence you need in your personal relationships.

Though one of my good college friends, a wrestler, was not a physically imposing guy, he had such a look of determination and conviction that people just got out of his way. Even if he was just walking to the cafeteria, he did so with absolute confidence.  He was not intimidating, but seeing him you felt that he was on his way to something of importance. He embodied the idea, “If you are going to walk, walk with purpose.”  While you walk, think of yourself as going to do great things, whether going to breakfast, receiving your Olympic medal, or approaching that cute girl across the room. If you walk with purpose,  confidence will exude from you…
