Hey, it’s Graham here with another confidence building activity for you. Now, the way that you walk says a whole lot about how confident that you feel inside and what happens is that when you’re walking down the street, the way that we walk projects our inner sense of self-confidence out into the world and other people can’t help but respond to us by noticing the way that we’re walking and the level of confidence with which we’re walking.
So I want to have a bit of fun with this activity and the idea of this activity is to focus on the way that you walk and to walk like The Terminator. So if you haven’t seen it before, grab a copy of Terminator 1. Notice the way that Arnold Schwarzenegger walks when he’s striding down the street. He’s standing in a very erect position. He’s swinging his arms back and forward. He’s striding along like a machine, and basically what you want to do is start striding along like a powerful machine as well.
When we lack confidence, we often tend to kind of swagger along unconfidently or just sort of meander along down the street or wherever it is that we’re going. And the aim of this activity is to focus on really walking with intention, walking powerfully with a very erect upright posture that really communicates, “I’m on a mission here, I’m going somewhere in the world.”
Arnie’s character in The Terminator was on a mission to get Sarah Connor, and if you want to be on a mission to get your girl you’re going to need to start walking like it. So as you go about your business this week, consider walking like The Terminator. Grab a copy of the movie if you haven’t already seen it, Terminator 1, the original and best, and, yeah, start walking like The Terminator.
