Fake Powerful Body Language to Be More Confident

You can learn a lot from the body language of others but, as social psychologist Amy Cuddy points out, your body language has a huge impact on you as well.

Some people may have an issue with the idea of “fake it ’til you make it” because they don’t want to always feel like a fraud, but Cuddy explains that it’s more of a process of faking it until you become it. Feeling powerful and confident is a process and something you can learn. It starts with small changes in your body language — something everyone can do.

Relationship Quote

That’s a hugely interesting view on cheating and leaving others:

If someone cheats on you, they did you a favor by showing you who they are. If someone leaves you, they did you a favor by not staying in a relationship that’s not working for them — and allowing you to move on and find someone right for you. Neil Strauss
