Week 19’s webinar included the Ted Talk from Amy Cuddy, a social scientist, on “Your body language may shape who you are”. I immediately saw the benefit that her two minutes-a-day body posture change make on my life and feelings as well as my clients lives and feelings. Cuddy was using the concept of nonverbal body language. There is plenty of peer reviewed evidence that supports that people make judgments on about others based upon nonverbal body postures and facial expressions. By extending this concept beyond how other people think and feel about us, Cuddy viewed how our nonverbal body language makes us feel. Why this is important is because we are talking about our thoughts, our feelings, and the bio-chemical reactions including our hormones that occur from our thoughts and our feelings. If we can easily make a shift in our nonverbal expressions that change how we think and feel about ourselves, then the choices we make, and behaviors and actions we do can also change.

Week 15 in many ways is the start of new beginnings. We had our last webinar on Saturday, December 30th helping us transition as 2017 ended into the new year of 2018. The first day of 2018 brought us to Week 15’s Lesson of the Master Keys where Haanel explains that “the laws under which we live are designed solely for our advantage.” It is also the start of a new scroll, scroll IV from Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World. Scroll IV proclaims that “I am nature’s greatest miracle”.
