What does the way you walk say about you? A Lesson from the Magic of Thinking Big

I have always been teased about the way I walk. I walk quickly, I pass people by on the sidewalks as though a dog is chasing me. I am oftentimes told that I would get a speeding ticket. I simply laugh at these jokes. In response, I say that I am “on a mission”. I could be n my way to class, on my way to the office or about to meet a friend, I walk with purpose.

Increasing your walking pace by 25% was one of the confidence building exercise in the Magic of Thinking Big . The author told of the games his mother played that consisted of watching passersby and observing their walking. His mother advised him that there was much to learn from observing the walking habits of people. The author said that psychologists link poor posture and sluggish walking to low self confidence. Psychologists also say that our attitudes can be changed by improving out posture and by increasing our speed of movement.

The author described 3 different groups of people based on their walking patterns. The first group are the “beaten people”, they “shuffle and stumble along through their life”. The second group of people are average and so is their walk, average. The last group of people exude “superconfidence” in the words of the author. These people walk faster than average, there is a sprint in the way they walk. Their walk tells the world “ I’ve got someplace important to go, something important to do”. Moreover, it tells the onlooker that the walker will succeed at anything he is about to do. The author advised that we should “throw our shoulders back, lift up our head and walk a little faster and feel confidence grow.
