Weekend Edition: Getting In Formation

I’m breaking all the blog rules here. I’m supposed to be blogging on a Monday or Tuesday between 8 and 11 am, and here I am on a Saturday morning, knocking on your inbox. Anybody home?

It’s been a busy week of preparations and I can’t wait to share more with you soon! My quick Saturday lesson:

 CHANGE YOUR POSTURE.

Literally. I watched an amazing Ted talk where social psychologist Amy Cuddy broke down how your literal posture reveals how you feel about yourself and is an indication of the effectiveness of your presence. Her research finds that a small change of posture for two minutes when you’re feeling stressed or nervous can positively affect your testosterone and cortisol levels in your brain, making you feel more confident and ultimately, less stressed. People with these levels confidently take big risks and have no qualms. Kinda sounds like my cousin, Kamar, eh?

Changing your posture is the ultimate faith it till you make it. Accept the dynamic tension between becoming and being what you’re purposed to be; in the meantime, do the work and act like you know who are.

Know your purpose, then prepare, and plan, practice a lot, pray a ton, and you will prosper. That’s a promise.

Get.

In.

Formation.
