Fake it till ya make it doesn’t hold the same weight as Earl Nightengales’ ‘Believe & Achieve’.
To fake it would imply a seed of doubt. That the opportunity for failure exists, as “I am only a fake”.
You may be able to ‘outwork’ your self-doubt, as Alex Hormozi teaches to have a set of undeniable skills beneath you.
But that’s the reason CEO’s have a mid-life crisis, as they only accumulated skills, without the consideration of who they really wanted to be.
“Go to college”, “Get this job”, “Don’t be friends with them” are skills and experiences that give you undeniable proof of who you are, but not necessarily who you want to be.
You don’t have to fake it till you make it, but you do have to align your thoughts, actions, and speech in accordance with who you want to be. This isn’t faking it, because as soon as you assume the role, it’s yours.
That’s all for today.
