Some say this is one of the most abused quotes in the self development space at the moment.
I couldn’t agree more… (you might have a hunch I’m not a fan of this quote)
Yet at the same time I’ve come across a number of Entrepreneurs, Directors & Leaders who turn to ‘Fake it till you make it’ when life/business gets tough and happens to us.
Which lets be honest…is very often which is one of the many joys that comes with being driven & ambitious.
I just wonder… Why do we need to fake anything? Especially when whatever we need to create, whether an emotion, skillset or belief…can be created from/within us and the moment itself.
Created through repeated, consistent & determined action in the right direction.
As a Peak Performance Coach I have seen this truly apply to a number of areas we aspire to enhance..whether personal confidence, managing stress, decision making or even leadership.
The real challenge I find with the fake it mentality…is that it implies we’re not enough as we are…and need to be something else, that when we become the something else, we will finally be enough.
Faking will only get one so far…but connecting with whats real and adapting your mindset/psychology is a much more powerful place to come from.
Instead of the fake it mindset…I have a powerful invitation for you. The invite is to play with this 1 mindset hack that is the difference that makes the difference.
This 1 mindset hack has made a significant impact in my life and the world of my clients.
The 1 mindset hack is…. ‘Proceed as if success is inevitable’
Out of a number of mindset hacks I’ve come across…taking on this way of thinking/being has tremendously helped my clients create massive certainty in themselves, as well as the drive and energy to follow through on all they want to create within their business.
As Steven Covey said ‘Always begin with the end in mind’ because whatever we focus on…..expands.
From a Peak Performance perspective, by focusing on your outcome and seeing yourself in the future having the success you want…..
You will feel so much more confident, happy, creative, powerful, focused, stress free, driven, motivated & able to bounce back from challenges more valiantly.
Visionaries becomes visionaries, not because they have a vision, but because they breathe their vision every single day through who they are, their thoughts and their actions.
I’m curious, if you were to proceed as if success is inevitable, what impact could this have for you?
How would you feel both personally & professionally in business or your career?
What would be different? What would you notice that is different in how you experience the world?
How would your outlook on the future be?
What emotions would you hold with this belief?
What impact would this have on your performance?
I’d love to hear your answers….. please do comment below and let me know what you think.
Proceed as if success is inevitable…… and light up your 2018!
