#SWEETSHARE on Being: In my Burlesque Basics class, I work a lot with students on body language and postures and allowing opening up/extensions, harnessing energy, and powerful posing to be the things that move us in to a new way of being. Assuring everyone that they belong and have the right to hold that sexy and powerful space, I used to say, "Fake it (or shake it) until you make it."
Because I knew that they were not fakes. They just didn't know it, or had forgotten. So "fake it" until you discover that you're not faking anymore. You've actually become it.
Thanks to Amy Cuddy's wonderful Tedtalks presentation, the new quote will be:
"Fake it until you BECOME it."
