Fake it ‘Til you Make it

“Don’t wait for the world to recognize your greatness, Live it and let the world catch up to you” ~Unknown

When you walk on the street, and see someone smiling and laughing, do you have doubts that they are happy? if you see someone with tears in their eyes, what would be your first impression?

We often perceive the inside of a person’s feelings from the simple projection that they have on their outside, and we do not only do that with others, we do that with ourselves too, Unconsciously. So the next time you put a smile on your face, your body will think you’re happy and spread those happiness hormones across and you will start feeling better.

One of the keys of being able to realize your dreams, is First when you can visualize yourself at the finish line, and second and foremost, ACT AS IF you’re already there; and that’s the essence of this week’s Tip.

If a friend of yours showed you his new wallet, and you thought it was of average quality, but then he would tell you that it’s a 1,000$ Gucci Wallet… Then instantly you would re-think its value and the wallet will look “different” to you now…

Now let me ask you this question, if you ever went to a store to buy cloth, whom you would like to buy from, that miserable salesperson or that joyful and great looking? Do you want to take advice about how to look Great from someone who doesn’t? will someone buy your products if you wouldn’t buy them??

Here’s 3 things you can start doing Today!

  1. Pay Attention to the Details: in your Day-to-Day, pay attention to how you look, sound and act with others… and it starts with the smallest things like the way you hand your business card to the way you answer your phone and how you would thank someone… PAY ATTENTION.. it’s Super Important!
  2. Imitate what is working: didn’t you find yourself one day sounding “interesting” before other people, just by memorizing and repeating some smart phrases you’ve read or heard earlier that day? so YES, you will be sophisticated and highly intellectual one day, and today you can start by borrowing from your idols.
  3. Be true to yourself: almost everyone is attracted to SELF-Confidence, and what is shown on the outside is always a reflection of how comfortable you are with your self…

“To be a great champion, you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.” ~Muhammad Ali

When you take care of your self, you dress up, you’re looking at your best, and talking like you’re worth 1 million dollars… Everyone will think you do… Including you.

Have a great week!
