Don’t fake it till you make it; Fake it till you Become it!

Amy Cuddy rose to national acclaim after her viral TED talk on power posturing and developing confidence in the workplace, especially for young adults and young women at that. In her talk, she discusses the power of using one’s body to take up the space it rightfully deserves with purpose and intent. She demonstrates how simply reclaiming the full extent and capability of the physical body can help fool the mind into a feeling of dominance and calm command. “Fake it till you make it” only tells half the story — if you spend enough time “faking” confidence, soon enough, you’ll actually become more confident and self-assured.
