Fake Your Way to Real Change

A friend recently asked, “How can I be more confident?” The answer is to act “as if” you’re already a confident person. This results in more actual confidence. This can work with any quality you want to cultivate . .  .  happiness, kindness, productivity, acceptance, etc. Ask yourself, “What does it look like to be more (fill in the blank)?” and do those things. The feelings will follow.

Don’t Wait Until You’re Feeling It

Too often we wait until everything feels just right or until we think we’re ready. This can be a long wait! Research shows that changing your behavior first can change the way you think and feel. The mere act of imagining yourself with the quality you’re striving for, and acting accordingly, will help bring it about. Guaranteed.

Focus on the Inner

This only works when you focus on how “you” feel about yourself and not on trying to control how others perceive you. Think: “I want to trust myself to finish what I start” instead of “I want others to notice and value how much I get done.” If you’re trying to prove yourself to others, you’ll never feel satisfied.

Try Affirmations

Affirmations can be helpful tools to reinforce what you’re going for. Create a positive statement about what you want, in the present tense. If you want to be more patient with your Ex, “My patience is remarkable.” If you want to be less judgmental and move loving toward yourself try, “I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”

Celebrate Sm(all) Successes

Faking it until you feel it is not a one and done—it’s a practice that works over time. Acknowledging your wins will help you reinforce your intentions. If you’re working on confidence and you spoke up in a meeting, make a note of it and give yourself a pat on the back. Add each small victory to your list so you can track your progress.

Acting “as if” doesn’t mean being phony or inauthentic. It’s changing your behavior first and trusting the feelings will follow. So, don’t wait. It’s okay to go ahead and claim the results you want and start living them now. One day, you’ll realize that you are really there, without having to fake it.

  1. My name is Sofia Lorette, I am from Wales here in the UK. Contact Priest Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com if you really want your ex back or solve your fertility problem in your marriage. I contacted a spell caster to help me make my boyfriend propose to me and I was not happy I contacted him. My boyfriend was a fine handsome and caring man and all of a sudden, his attitude towards me changed and my friends mocked me for dating him for so long and never got married because he never popped the question. My boyfriend soon left me and this was the complete opposite I wanted from this spell caster. After my experience with that spell caster, I never believed I would work with any spell caster again until I read a testimony about PRIEST ODUNGA SPELL TEMPLE. I am now a happy woman for contacting such a man who brought my ex boyfriend to me in 3 days of contact and I was overjoyed. My ex boyfriend proposed to me and we got married July 13th 2022 @ Estorio. Why did I not contact this man at first before meeting the first one who didn’t help my situation? I will not want anybody out there to make the same mistake I did but contact the solid and trusted spell caster who will help you at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com or contact his WHATSAPP number at +2348167159012 and you will meet this Priest Odunga to help you
