Fake it till you make it..

foxHey, if you aren’t the person you want to be, the old saying “Fake it till you make it” is worth exploring.  A positive mental attitude leads to a positive mental attitude.

You need to have the confidence and self worth to drive towards your dream, if you don’t, maybe there are issues you need to resolve before you can move forward??  Mental issues are not my thing, if you don’t like who you are, you may need to figure out why that is first, before you can move into the person you want to be.  But, pretending to be that person you want to be, may in deed be enough to get you onto your next level.  Finding courage, leadership and self esteem can sometimes be as easy as taking that first step.  I was talking with my 6yo about overcoming fear, fear is good, but only if you can face it with real or fake courage…  I talked with her about how she over came her fear (or rather just closed her eyes and jumped) of the diving board.  I reminded her of how my fun she would be missing out on if she had never taken that leap for the first time.

She understands it, but will still struggle with it in certain scenerios.  So, how about you?  What fear is stopping you?  Maybe Fake it Till you Make it will work.  Can’t hurt to try right?
