No one said anything about doing this for other people.
Matter of fact it's better not to be fake.
Putting yourself in that physical position "it's called a power pose" directly produces more testosterone in your body (serious) and puts you at a slightly elevated mood.
The mind and the body are intertwined, and fake it till you make it is legit.
