We all know our body language affects how others perceive us. But did you know it affects how you perceive yourself? It also directly impacts your probability of professional and personal success.

As Amy Cuddy explains in the TED Talk below: Don’t fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.

I mentioned her talk in my lessons from 2012, but it made such an impact on me, it warrants its own post. This video is well worth watching, especially for women. I’ll never sit through a meeting the same again.

Enjoy, readers, and have a wonderfully recuperative weekend.
