A TED talk about “Faking it until you become it!”
Amy Cuddy talks about the research that has been done regarding non-verbal cues and interactions we have with others. She also talks about how our nonverbal expressions, thoughts, feelings and physiology affect us.
We know that our minds can change our bodies and she decided to find out if our bodies can change our minds. Her research confirmed that indeed our bodies can change our minds and our lives in meaningful ways! She tells about her own personal story when she was 19 years old after a car accident. This TED talk is very powerful and I usually recommend clients to view it.
If you experience social anxiety and doubts about yourself, this talk may greatly benefit you.
Email me and let me know if you’d like extra help in learning how to “fake it until you become it.” It is possible to become it, but it doesn’t happen overnight. You have to put forth the effort to make it happen.
Enjoy the talk!
