Do You Have the Power?

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 7.36.23 AM

Here’s a riddle: What do Finance, Yoga, and Dating have in common? Well, let’s consider who’s got the most POWER.

1) On the Trading Floor, who’s got it? The junior associate swinging the baseball bat and talking loudly to his friends in the next cubicle? OR the woman in the corner office, who doesn’t have to raise her voice. Just hearing her Manolo’s clank down the hall is enough to make everyone sit up straiter in their chair.

2) In the Yoga Studio, who’s got it? The dude who’s breathing heavily and loudly, who jumps and lands on his mat with a thump and a grunt? OR the lithe dancer who seemingly moves in slow motion so that every jump lands without a single sound?

3) In the Bar, who’s got it? The woman who enters the room with a splash, says hello to everyone and immediately kisses the bartender on each cheek? OR is it the woman who steps into the bar, pauses silently to survey the scene allowing each and every man and woman to see her, and fills the room with her presence without saying a thing?

OK–did you figure out? What do Finance, Yoga, and Dating have in common?

Answer: The person with the most quiet confidence has the power!

OK, so how do you get that confidence? Well, it’s a practice like anything else. But keep in mind, you don’t have to do a whole song and dance to convince people that you’re powerful. Just believe it. And everyone around you will too.

Watch it here:

What Tony Soprano Taught Me About Love

What could Tony Soprano possibly teach me about love? Well, it’s not exactly Tony Soprano. It’s the late (and great) James Galdolfini in the movie Enough Said.

First and foremost, watching this movie is just so sad knowing that James Gandolfini is no longer with us. His performance is stunning.

He plays opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and together they play a couple who just started dating. We see them from the beginning stages of their relationship, and as they get more comfortable with each other.

***SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen the movie and want to, you probably shouldn’t read the next few lines or watch this episode of BDG.TV. While it doesn’t tell the whole story, it still might give you more information than you want to know.***

At some point in their relationship James Gandolfini’s character says, “You broke my heart. And I’m too old for this shit.”

This taught me two very important things:

1) Guys fall in love.

2) Guys get their hearts broken.

Do you think a guy would ever say that in real life? Well, turns out James Gandolfini added the line himself!

I realize this might be a big fat duh to you. But I have to admit, it can be easy for me to forget. Is this is obvious to you? Or do you need this reminder too? Let me know in the comments section below!

Let’s bring some more compassion to the boys, OK?
