Principles of Law 28
Law 28 emphasizes being strong and bold. Naturally, we as humans, tend to think twice before taking any risk or acting boldly. But, law 28 states that exercising boldness and acting courageously will help us to be strong. It will portray us as self-confident people.

While dealing with people if you show any hesitation, it would be very obvious that you are trying to hide your weaknesses. Other people will see through that and will take advantage of your weak point.

When you present yourself with bold actions, you come across as intimidating and powerful. Also, if you unexpectedly behave boldly, that is even more intimidating. In this way, other people will always be alerted about your next action.

- Exerting power
