In two thousand and twelve, I was introduced to TED, or what many refer to as TED Talks. These are short talks, presented typically, by experts, LIVE on stage and videoed as content for the TED site for others to watch, learn, and benefit from. Oddly enough I learned about this non profit U.S. organization, through a innovating fellow, Luke Swanek, in Muskoka, who had the gumption to originate a ‘talk’ from Nipissing U in Bracebridge, Ontario. While at the Haliburton Broadcasting Group (Moose FM) at the time, the infamous Mike Fry and I made the decision to sponsor the event. This was leading edge technology.
This morning, I was reading the Star Touch on line, and came upon an article about the remarkable Amy Cuddy who had overcome all odds to recover from a terrible car accident and educated her way to greatness. Having read the article, I went on to the TED site and decided to watch and listen to the talk by Amy. Fascinating, educational and in particular motivating, which is why i decided to offer the talk to you today.
The topic is about the incredibly powerful attributes of body language, but more importantly how practicing various body language poses, can impact our organic state, furthering our success in many situations.
I have kept this version of the Wright Report unusually short, so you can sit down with a cup of tea, glass of wine or favorite beverage… ‘chill’ , and watch Amy’s talk here. The Star Touch article is here.
If you have any issues with interviews, public speaking or positive thinking…… this is a lovely gift I impart to you this week. Enjoy
