true power comes from within

examples of power poses

          

A bunch of people emailed to say that the link to this TED talk didn’t come through so I’m re-posting yesterday’s blog along with a photo of the poses. I’d originally heard Amy Cuddy on NPR and as she spoke about her personal journey of feeling like she didn’t belong, and what changed for her, I was deeply moved. At the end of the talk she basically said that making this small change in the way we “stand” can dramatically change our lives. She went on to say that she wanted to get this information out to help those who may have no resources other than their own minds to work with.

I just watched a great TED talk given by Amy Cuddy (a professor at Harvard Business School) and wanted to share it with you. It’s about 20 minutes long and toward the end, she talks about how changing our “postures” for only 2 minutes will change our minds and our lives.

  1. I love your artwork, The Invitation!

    Are you selling a print for $44 or the original?

    Also, can you tell me what the painting means to you?

    Very interested in buying…

    Many thanks!

    • Thank you, Elizabeth. The link didn’t go through to my artwork page, but here it is again MY ARTWORK . I have 8 small linen canvasas and I am going to paint 8 originals (The one I put up on the blog just sold but I will be painting 7 more) so each will be slightly different but basically the same design. This painting feels like Life/Opportunity/New Openings which are presenting themselves to us at every moment for us to say yes to.

  2. Mary, the black cat, the green couch, the green eyes, that is a great photo…I hope you keep that one…it’s gorgeous. As to standing tall, if nothing else, regardless of how successful etc it makes one look, I look at people as they age and I’m one of them on the downside of seventy and I’ll be darned if I’ll look like I’m the age I am…It seems as people age, they get humpy on the back…t’aint going to happen to me if I can help it…forget the confidence stage I’m into growing old and not giving into it physically any more than I have to.
