We’re ALWAYS being told to ‘fake it until we make it,’ right?
Is this REALLY good thing?
Pretending we’re more successful than we really are..
Eating in restaurants we can’t afford..
Having our photo taken next to a vintage Jaguar [that isn’t our own]…
So what DO you do when you haven’t got the big success results, the fancy overseas vacations or the big cars?
You can try going down the fancy restaurant route if you like but these days people are pretty savvy and they’ll soon work out that it’s fake.
They won’t buy it.
And what’s more they won’t buy from you either!
Do you want to know what I think?
There’s NEVER been a BETTER time to be authentic in front of so many people and get these people to like you – no matter what kind of person you are.
• The book-writing bike guy who lives on a little island like me..
• Or the cosmopolitan city slicker..
• Or the home-schooling mom of four..
• Or the hi-tech brainiac geek..
The REAL you!
So, you don’t have to manufacture the person you are.
OWN who you are – so you can have what you want.
Choose to become the person;
- who shows up every day
- who doesn’t take no for an answer
- who is dedicated to their business
- who does the research
- who takes in new information and then teaches it to others
- who doesn’t listen to self-limiting beliefs
And anyway – when you think about it – fake it until you make WHAT exactly..?
Every successful person that I have met will always say that they are working hard to take it to the next level.
No matter if they’re a 5, 6, 7 or 8 Figure Earner.
Okay, for transparency I don’t know any 8 Figure peeps just yet…
But you get the idea, right?
For them, there’s ALWAYS another mountain to climb.
So you CAN’T fake it until you make it, because you’ll end up doing that for the rest of your life!
My advice is to find someone you are looking to become like and strive to be more like them in your actions – do what they do.
Model what they do – don’t copy!
Always be YOU.
Remember – you are on a voyage of self-discovery.
So STOP being the person you were when you started all of this, a year ago, five years ago, whatever.
You are already better than that!
One good way to utilise the ‘fake it until you make it’ idea but in a much better way, as in a ‘become and own who you are, so you can get to where you want to get to,’ kind of way, is this;
Find 1, 2 or 3 people who are doing what you’re doing and get CURIOUS about what they do! How they present themselves, how they speak on camera, where and what they post etc and then make that your own.
Then share even your smallest results and become that successful person.
Show up as a person who is getting bigger and better all the time.
Become an Authority.
And if you don’t feel like you can become an authority yet, I’m here to tell you that you are wrong. You’re a lot closer than you think!
Here’s a Top Tip to become an authority FAST!
Pick a topic, say a popular problem in your niche – something that keeps people awake at night. Go do a TON of research. Then write an awesome blog post, report or better still, an eBook. Post it on your site or make it into an ad.
This FREE Training will help you create your first eBook to give you instant authority in minutes!
At this stage, you’re really just a ‘researcher’ rather than an ‘expert’ but if you do a good job AND you do it often enough, you’ll very soon be seen as an ‘authority!’
You’ve heard the phrase;
LEARN – DO – TEACH
So you might not have the BIG results just yet, but so what!
BE that person!
BE the person you need to be to have the success you want.
Your future success is real and it’s out there waiting for you!
