Fake it Until You Become it: How to Use Body Language to Boost Your Confidence

“Tiny tweaks can lead to big changes… Before you go into the next stressful evaluative situation, for two minutes, try doing this, in the elevator, in a bathroom stall, at your desk behind closed doors. That’s what you want to do. Configure your brain to cope the best in that situation. Get your testosterone up. Get your cortisol down. Don’t leave that situation feeling like, oh, I didn’t show them who I am. Leave that situation feeling like, I really feel like I got to say who I am and show who I am.” ~ Amy Cuddy

We’ve all heard the saying: “Fake it until you make it” right? But what about:” Fake it until you become it”? In this powerful TED Talk, social psychologist Amy Cuddy, talks about the way our body language impacts our perception of ourselves – the way we think and feel, and how to use body language to boost our confidence and improve the quality of our lives.

Enjoy 🙂
