MKE – Week 19: Strike A Pose

One of my favorite things from this week was watching the TED talk video by Amy Cuddy. She made me Smile, Cry, Feel Proud and Oh So Powerful!! When I sit back and recall the video in my mind it made me think of the song by Madonna.
Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it
Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it
Vogue, vogue
Vogue, vogue
Oooh, you’ve got to
Let your body move to the music
Oooh, you’ve got to just
Let your body go with the flow
Oooh, you’ve got to
Wonder Woman

I thought back to a time a few years back. I was getting ready to present on a weekly district call and how nervous I was. I got up from my desk, went out to the bathroom and just looked into the mirror. I stared at myself and said, ‘You Can Do This! You Can Do This!’ I walked back and forth and continued this for about 5 minutes. I still had butterflies but instantly gained Confidence!! It’s amazing to think such small things and tiny tweaks can be life changing! I will be Striking a Pose more often! Time to lower the Cortisol and Increase the Testosterone! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Fake It Til You Make It
One of the other things that really impacted me was HOW! It’s truly amazing how 3 small words can have such HUGE Impact!
H – Honesty
O – Open Mindedness 
W – Willingness
As I read this on a daily basis, it made me think back when I was little and listening to my parents instill values in my developing mind. Do you remember your parents saying, ‘Do the Right thing.’, ‘Always be honest, and don’t lie.’ ‘Respect Others.’ ‘ Always say, Thank You.’ ‘Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover.’ ‘Help Others.’ Just think, these 3 letters, can change the World!
In closing, I ask you………
  1. “What would the Person I Intend to become Do Next?”
  2. “How Will I Behave TODAY to Finish the Masterpiece of my Life Elegantly?”
  3. “Who is YOUR Power Pose Alter Ego?” 🙂
