Your mind and your body are part of the same system. They influence each other. When you’re happy, you look happy, you sound happy and you use happy words. Try to be miserable while you jump in the air and clap your hands, or try to be happy as you slouch in a chair and let your head droop. Your attitude controls your mind, and your mind delivers the body language.
Attitudes set the quality and mood of your thoughts, your voice tone, your spoken words. Most importantly, they govern your facial and body language. Attitudes are like trays on which we serve ourselves up to other people. Once your mind is set into a particular attitude, you have very little ongoing conscious control over the signals your body sends out. Your body has a mind of its own, and it will play out the patterns of behavior associated with whatever attitude you find yourself experiencing.
