    Modelling and composure are all about confidence and comfort zones. To become confident you need to accept yourself as you are. If you think a lot of yourself t is good, if you think little of yourself it is bad. It i good to think highly of yourself - a path to happiness. Do not think that you are better because you look nicer or have more money, think of yourself as being better because of you being a 'gentle giant'. If you want to be confident do what others do that you do not like. This mockery of them will put you on a high. After you mock them mock yourself too - burn with them. Once you believe that mockery is a mockery of sesnibility you will feel more confidetn with what others see and more comfortable with yourself.

    When it comes to posing do not think of working your way towards the pose, but rather just imagine the end. If you concentrate on somehting it becomes unnatural, so, unless you want a pattern to fall into, do it naturally. Think of where you want to be in the pose, and reach for it a little slower than normal, making it sensual and natural. That is the trick, if you are posing for a photo you need to have an air of indifference beleieving that you are indeed someone important. For a photo you need to relax, so do it slowly. If you are stiff reaching for the pose you will have terrible photo result. If you do what you are told to do by th director then you need to also relax, but how do you relax? If there is a mirro handy at the shoot you may look into the mirror and pose for itto see what it looks like - do this before the picture with mirror out of view of the set. You can relax by purposefully losing it, like shaking your arms and legs as if you were doing sport or something. If you do this for long enough all your muscles will relax and you will be able to pose more easily as the stiffness will be gone. Each time you have anoter atempt think of something new as that will be better for you. Each time you think of the same thing and try it again because it didn't work then you will feel worse and get stressed and become stiff again, believe it or not! So shake, accept yourself in the mirror and the job should be sealed...

    When it comes to the cat walk then you need to relax once again. Think of yourself as if you were wearing the worst costume and that you make it happen, but don't act on this. Plan or the worst as you will never fall or at least it will be unlikely that you fall. Think if the people are booing you, are they? No! They are not allowed to, so, relax! If the people were to boo you you would feel much worse. Relax by making fun of yourself with another model, comparing horribel childhood stories where you were wrong, stupid or made a fool of yourself. This will make you think of the other model as if the joke was on them, naturally nobody can accept the joke is on them as apparently everybody loves them, at least once they get to know them. But you are a model and you need to assert yourself to make the garment better looking for your boss. Remember to rip yourself off at last a little bit and you will feel no pressure on you once you are out there. Gossip about the other models, you are not be afriad of them being harmed, you are afraid of being seen as a nasty peron by others, honestly. The more you try to fit in the more you stand out as being ordinary... are you ordinary? Are you a phoney? Do you lie to make and keep friends? What will you say aftrwards when the show is over and yuo get fired? Now, rip others off, acept when they rip you off, and just walk as if you ruled the world.

    Composure is also about confidence and comfort zones. Where are you comfortable? Are you comfortable at home? Are you comfortable with certain people you don't want to be around when doing something else? Do you feel comfortble when you do not trust people? Will you lose money to these people... can you laugh at yourself if it is not about money? Do you need the people that you meet? If you don't why worry about what they think of you? Accept that there is no way to make people like you and then be nice to them to change it, or don't ven bother. Do you need everyone to like you, are you not supported by your friends? Weren't your friends once peers? If some people can like you then all people can like you... Forget about people that are serious about social status, they will only make you sadder. Focus on your good points or things that yuou think you are good at - feed yourself 'sweeties'. Think about things you are not good at - eat your vegetables. Accept yourself, accept that your friends love you and that they will back you up in a dispute, and then you will see that you will be more comfortable and confident that you have gone with your friends and they will go with you. It is only because of fear of ridicule that you feel uncomfortable - there is no physical danger in societies opinion is there? You have your own clique and that is that - you may expand it if you impres people with your composure, as you have no fear about ridicule any more. People think what they think and you need not to feel worse for it but accept it yourself. Then you will be more confident about yourself and be more relaxed and walk like a model, or, some sort of mobster... yeah! Seriously look at the people that have composure and think what they think. They are always in danger and yet they can relax - they relax because they can strike back with the help fo their friends, and you have friends and accept that not everyone likes you... you see?
