An inspiring talk “Fake it until you…”

Recently, my good friend shared with me, for which I am immensely obliged, this TED talk. The sharing coincided with my earlier thinking and examining of a phrase “fake it until you make it”. I was thinking of my job being a model, or an actor and of many other life situations when you have to convince others and make them believe in yourself, your ideas etc. I was never the biggest fun of that phrase, but believed that there was some sense in it, yet it was missing a better “spin”, composition of the words. In Amy Cuddy’s “Power Posing” talk the phrase is excellently re-phrased and thus re-born into, in my opinion, a much better version of the old one. I could not state it any better.
