Why Fake it ‘Till You Make it?

Jun 28

Contrary to your high integrity self,
Faking it may be a skill,Football_Player-_Ashleigh_Hopkin_Wikipedia
To not leave on the shelf.
 
Coincidentally, this fact is barely known,
The faking skills, you’re using,
Should not be done alone.
 
Realistically, you must practice them with zeal,
But not behind closed doors,
You must practice them for real.
 
Intentionally, you’re faking doubt,
Faking can be curative,
Yes, faking helps you out!
 
Experimentally, just fake it for a while,
Just fake it once, fake it twice,
‘Till fake becomes your style!
 
Understandably – when faking things so far,
It’s not at all surprising,
The fake is who you are.
 
And finally, how faking should be done,
Is… fake it ‘till you make it,
And see what you’ve become!
 

Studies show that “acting as if…” is not exactly being phony. “Faking it” can be a skill to get you where you want to be. That doesn’t mean you have to  lie or act in inauthentic ways, it simply means you act with the confidence of a world-class athlete. They ALL believe they are number one. EVERY ONE of them believes they are going to win the competition!

So, what do you believe? How is your belief system shaping who you will become?
