fake it till you make it

“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” — Milton Berle

In today’s economic climate, it’s easy to be seduced into the negative thinking that is being bombarded everywhere. But, it doesn’t have to be that way.

What you believe creates your results both past and present. If your currently believe ideas that do not support your success, you must fake it, till you make it.

If you currently don’t appear to be on the path that will create the level of success in the form or way you desire, you must begin to identify the mental programming that is limiting you before you can change your resulting limiting actions.

When you write goals or have thoughts about anything you desire, you must pay close attention to the inner-dialogue that is happening within your mind. When thinking of your goals, if you repeatedly think of the specific reasons of how and why your goal may be hard to obtain, your current mental programming is limited and will not allow you to break through your current barriers to further success. Worse yet, your limited mental images are simply a bad choice based upon wrong information.

Do this…write down the first twenty mental images or messages you heard or were taught about money. If closely examined, most of the images and messages remembered will be limited, negative and fear based.

Those negative messages and images have taken a life of their own and have been accepted in the subconscious as absolute truths. To increase money, you must identify your current limiting messages and rewrite the messages to create new truths that are accepted.

Unfortunately, your subconscious accepts all images and messages without filtering. However, you can overwhelm the negative messages with your own positive messages.

Your conscious mind will choose and react to the strongest messages being given to it. Don’t allow yourself or others to create your destiny based upon limited beliefs.

Your subconscious can act as an automatic responder in a positive form just as it can in a negative. For your conscious mind to react with positive messages you must bombard your mind with positive and repetitive images.

Read and listen to the material that will support you in creating the images you desire, while reducing and eliminating the negative influences you encounter from relatives, co-workers, and the news. You create your own reality. It’s your responsibility to choose the right sources of information to saturate your brain with.

Until you get to the point where you’ve re-programmed your thinking, to be successful, act successful…Fake It Till You Make It!!!

Project success in your mind and with your actions and you’ll see the results in no time.
