Fake it until you become it!

For years I have said, ‘fake until you make it.’  Thanks to Dr. Amy Cuddy, I am now going to say, ‘fake it until you become it.’  It is a subtle but meaningful difference. 

The Ted Talk by Dr. Amy Cuddy is informative and eloquent.  In her talk, Dr. Cuddy discusses the impact of body language not only on how others perceive us but also about how we perceive ourselves.  I encourage you to watch her video and see what you can get from it.
