How to Build Self Confidence | CeCe Olisa | TEDxFresnoState

  • Опубликовано: 29 ноя 2018
  • It's possible to change your life by changing your perspective on the perceived obstacle. CeCe Olisa is a Lifestyle Blogger and Co-Founder of the CURVYcon, a convention celebrating body positivity and plus size fashion during New York Fashion Week. CeCe’s blog and RU-clip channel are dedicated to discussing fashion, fitness, dating, and life from a plus-size and body positive perspective.
    CeCe creates wildly popular plus-size workout videos on her RU-clip channel, encouraging women to work out because they love their bodies, not because they hate their bodies. An expert in body positivity, CeCe recently partnered with SHAPE Magazine for the 2018 SHAPE women’s half-marathon, as an honoree among 13 notable female leaders. She is described as a “person who proves you can be fit at any size” by, CeCe lives by her motto, “Don’t wait on your weight to live the life you want." This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    Woo-woo! Go, CeCe! You led the way by example! I especially loved what you said here 8:08 "...We live in a world that values...looking good over feeling good...Embrace health as a practice, not a pants size."

    My obstacle is being sociable and i lacked the ability to get close and connect with people. I have tried numerous times throughout my years but failed. I have no close friends or family member. Although i felt I am respectable enough to other and helpful enough, but because I am not funny and is what others considered shy and boring I am always excluded. Living in a society and put emphasis on social interaction and promote extrovertism, I felt like an unwanted alien. I am reluctant to apply for jobs who seeks those that can have the confidence and fit in. I am just afraid that if they know the real me, they might not want me. I want to just be myself and still feel ok with it, but I lacked the confidence to do so. I wish I was more like other people, who can make others feel happy and comfortable, who can connect with others so easily and have so much confidence in themselves that they could as a stranger for help.

    opposite to Cece I’ve always desired a fuller body bc I’m extremely thin & constantly being called things like “skinny, small, fragile, little,” times I’m compared to a twig that could ‘snap’ if too much aggression/weight was put on my body.

    I really liked this video! I want to become more confident in driving because I have driving anxiety. I stick to my small city and avoid getting on the highway, taking tolls and exits. So my goal is to push myself to drive longer distances by going new places outside of my city.

    Well done girl! Many of us struggle with confidence on account of our body size and especially the negative stigma that is attached to being "full" (neither am I saying it's ok to fall way out of your BMI & be threatened with the risks associated)... but some of us will NEVER be skinny...
    I think social media is injecting loads of pain in us that a woman can only attain happiness/full potential if slim

    Exactly what am facing now, I won the first place in quiz but my instructors congratulated the the 2nd position girl instead of me as the winner, even though i was given the winner prize, i was never acknowledged cos i am a Nigerian and they are Filipinos, well i want to say this to everyone one out there, YOU ARE TOO GREAT TO LOSE YOUR STAR, SHINE AND DON'T LET ANYONE DIM YOUR LIGHT.
