Fake it until you become it. Confidence isn’t something you are born with. It’s a learned behaviour. What are you willing to do to become more confident and successful?
Confidence is the feeling that you can do something well or succeed at something.
- I have confidence that I can run my own business.
- I have confidence that I can be a leader.
- I have confidence that I can become the person I want to attract.
Melanie Pinola gathered some great TED Talks in a post on lifehacker.com. The first one, number 10 at the top of the post is by Amy Cuddy and she does a great job of discussing the importance of “faking it” for as little as two minutes and how it can change your life.
There are many books on personal development with great suggestions on changes you can make that will lead to a change in you. All require you being willing to “fake it” until the behaviours become part of you, or fake it until you become it. Many people spend so much time debunking these authors and I believe it’s because they fail to “fake it” with any consistency.
Here are 5 of my favourite books:
- Awaken The Giant Within, Tony Robbins.
- The Leader Who Had No Title, Robin Sharma.
- Start With Why, Simon Sinek
- The Secret Language of Leadership, Steve Denning.
- 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, John C. Maxwell.
None of these books are the definitive answer. Each of these books have great suggestions. It’s up to you to find those nuggets of information that will help you become the person you want to attract.
Don’t fake it until you make it, fake it until you become it! Whether it’s to attract people to your business or that special someone into your life, the change starts with you. What are you willing to do?
Become that person you want to attract into your life.
Make it a great day!
