When it comes to succeeding in life, having enough confidence in yourself to actually try in the first place is half the battle! Only the very lucky few in the world get to truly make it on their first attempts, so that leaves the rest of us to try, fail, and then try again over and over until something positive starts to happen! Having the right attitude, and being able to put across the right kind of aura/energy is vital if you want to make this happen sooner rather than later. Here are ten tops tips on how to fake it till you make it!
1. Best Dressed
Always try to evoke an air of confidence and superiority in the way that you dress. Put yourself together like you are going out to take over the world every day, and pretty soon you just might do that!
Fix up, look sharp! You should always carry yourself with conviction: a straight back and shoulders, nice and relaxed so that you evoke the most powerful and confident energy possible.
No matter where you are going, always remember to give yourself a little spritz of your favourite fragrance. Smelling good can give people the same impression as looking good!
Never underestimate the power that a smile can have, even if it is a fake one! You should try to smile even in the face of adversity, because people always react more positively to someone who is smiling compared to frowning.
You need to really believe that you are on your way to reaching your goals, even if you aren’t quite there yet. Self love and empowerment are the key factors in faking it till you make it!
It doesn’t take that much effort to be a nice person, and by showing kindness to those around you, you will find that they are much more willing to help you on your journey.
7. Mind Games
Play mind games with yourself to trick yourself into thinking that you are doing super well, even in those times when things aren't going your way. The more you can behave on the outside like everything is going to plan, the more likely it is to start coming in to fruition.
If you want to look and seem like you are in full control of a situation, then it always helps to prepare and practise all of the possible outcomes first. That way, when you get to that stage, those around you will get the impression that you instinctively know what to do!
9. Slow down
Don’t try to do everything at a million miles an hour. Take things slow, and you will be able to get by by formulating late minute plans much more successfully.
10. Happy Dance
When you get home after a hard day of keeping up appearances, don’t forget to let it all out! Pump up the volume of your favourite songs and have a little dance party for one to get all of the tension out!
