When I worked in sales, the expression “Fake It Until You Make It” became popular in our meetings. It was not meant to be dishonest or ingenuine but encouraged believing yourself capable and successful, even before you reached your goals.
Laying aside doubt and fear to be your better self is a worthy preoccupation. Confidence predicates the success a person can achieve. No one but you knows you are falling apart if you portray yourself as being capable and engaged.
The more practiced an attitude, the faster it becomes a characteristic of personality. Such integration is an excellent tool for mending what ails the self.
Creatives often have issues with assertiveness and self-esteem. At times deep depression dogs many who endeavor in the arts and literature. Stepping into a purposefully created articulate and grounded persona may help usher one into a zone where assurance and competence are more effortless in interactions.
Success and living comfortably are within everyone’s providence. Assuming and projecting a balanced, friendly, knowledgeable self is vital. It is a lifelong challenge to be your own cheerleader. You have nothing but negativity and failure to lose and a rewarding life to gain. We create consistently, and we owe ourselves the effort to make who we are a masterpiece.
