Fatherly Pearls of Wisdom: Fake it Until You Make it! Confidence Comes After..
Not feeling confident in your approach? Don't ever show it, fake it until you make it! Confidence will come after this.How true is the statement that if you fake it you'll make it? Well that's not actually the statement. The statement is "fake it until you make it". And how true is that? Well it's pretty true since that's the reason why they say it! And it's a real life hack to live by as well! True words of wisdom that are good and worthy to learn and adopt and apply in your own life!
There's probably been many times in your life when you've felt not very confident about something. Whether it's approaching someone like a girl to ask for a date. Or someone else to ask for something else. Or when you've just been put on the spot and you have all eyes on you. Making you feel like you want the ground to just swallow you up and kill you! LOL
But the best thing to do in these cases is not to cower away and make up some excuse not to do it. But rather to man up and eat your excuses for breakfast! Tell yourself, no, that's just negativity talking, I'm not going to listen to you, I'm going to better myself and do this because I am a confident person.
And guess what? When you do do that, confidence really does come after it! Because you'll be feeling great about yourself that you found the confidence within yourself to do it. You surprised yourself because you was on shaky ground with this small voice in one ear saying, "you'll never do it" or "you're not good enough". And you ignored those and proved them otherwise!
What about you? Have you ever faked it until you made it? Has there ever been a time in your life where you felt like you didn't have much confidence in yourself to do something. But then ignored that feeling and done it with a faked confidence as though you was confident you could do it all along? How did it turn out for you? Did you find you got more confidence from this after?
That's generally what happens when you fake it until you make it!
