Ok, this is a-mazing.
These days she works at a fancy business school as a social scientist, but Amy Cuddy knows what it’s like to feel incompetent, to feel like an imposter.
Watch this TED talk for her science and her story.
This video has everything:
- it leads you through exciting, easy-to-understand science;
- you can apply the findings to your own world in just two minutes;
- it’ll make you cry.
And it’s not just for the average middle-class-well-educated TED talk viewers. Share this easy tip with everyone you know, ok? Amy Cuddy says at the end:
[T]he people who can use it the most are the ones with no resources, and no technology, and no status, and no power… They need their bodies, privacy and two minutes, and it can significantly change the outcomes of their lives.
If you ever feel like an imposter, if you could do with a confidence boost, if you need your stress levels to simmer down, or if you just love cool science, spend the next twenty minutes watching this video. You’ll just be surfing blogs otherwise, right?
What do you think? And if you’ve got a favourite TED talk (or something similar) share it in the comments, please!
