I Believe I Can…..

One of the best gifs we’ve seen of late is I Believe I can

We know about flapping our arms hard to barely keep from falling in the water after we’ve stepped OFF the diving board BELIEVING WE CAN.  Perhaps if we try a little harder, and shift our attitude slightly


If reminds us a bit of Anne Cuddy’s mind-blowing TED talk about changing your body language to change who you are, and her mentor’s advice about what to do when she was terrified:

‘You are going to fake it. You’re going to do every talk that you ever get asked to do. You’re just going to do it and do it and do it, even if you’re terrified and just paralyzed and having an out-of-body experience, until you have this moment where you say, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m doing it. Like, I have become this. I am actually doing this.’
