To be happy, we must become happy with who we are; we must accept ourselves, recognize the good, accept the bad, and come to see our flaws and shortcomings as proof of us being human.
But if you’re like me, there’s always something you want to change — fine tuning daily habits to help you reach your goals.
The problem is, many people just don’t believe they can actually do it — they have a negative self-image, and that negativity will stop them from achieving their goals every single time.
So today’s post is about this simple concept:
Fake it until you make it.
Think about the goal you want to achieve.
Who is the kind of person who has already achieved that goal or developed that habit?
Visualize this successful person.
Now, pretend you are that person. Imagine yourself stepping inside this person.
Without belief, without faith, you have nothing, and are incapable of becoming anything.
This is the trick. It’s not about what you want to achieve, but who you need to become in order to achieve those goals.
Just by pretending to be the person who has what you want, and assuming that identity, you will think and act like then.
You are, without a shadow of a doubt, what you think about all day long.
This magical trick can work for any goal, and for any person.
Imagine that you are that person, and you will become them.
