Fake It Till You Make It

I can't even express how much I appreciated hearing this talk from the wonderful Amy Cuddy. I could really identify with it. I distinctly remember texting a friend from a high-profile fashion week event and saying "I feel so out of my league here, it's ridiculous." Her simply reply was "Fake it till you make it." After reading that, my entire attitude changed and I realized that even though I didn't feel like I deserved to be there (much like Cuddy, I felt like an 'impostor'), I had every right to be. For the rest of the event I felt confident, and I think it really showed.
I'm really grateful that I got to watch this gem from TED. I'm really going to try to implement these tips from now on.
