Fake it ‘till you make it…
Have you heard of the saying ‘Fake it ‘till you make it’? Have you ever done that? Did you find it worked?
‘Fake it ‘till you make it’ was the philosophy of a dear friend of mine and I know it got her through some pretty ‘thick’ times.
What this means is, you pretend that things are going better than they are, or life is just the way you want it to be and then wait and the life will turn out the way you want it to.
My family left England to go and live in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in 1951. Our new life, farming tobacco in the middle of nowhere, was hard and harsh. To help her through the hard days with little or no money, stuck out in the bush alone, my mother would pretend she was on holiday and was going home next month. Over time, she began to forget that she was in a ‘foreign land’ and she slowly began to feel at home.
Fake it ‘till you make it is the best piece of advice anyone can give you.
Pretend that things are just as you want them to be and soon your pretending will turn into believing that it’s possible. As soon as you believe it’s possible, you are now on the same wave-length to receive it.
Your imagination is your most power tool of creation. As you pretend, your imagination conjures up feelings: good, happy, joyful feelings and the Law of Attraction will do its job beautifully (as it always does) and will deliver experiences into your life that hold those same feelings.
‘Fake it ‘till you make it’ is the best philosophy I know. Try it, even just for a few days and notice what happens!
