Fake It 'till You Make It

Good morning subscribers! Today is a beautiful day to be alive. I hope your weekend was excellent. This weeks (short) excerpt awaits below: 

Have you heard of the "Fake it ‘till you make it” mindset?

Most of us have applied this thought process to our professional careers in order to attain goals we have never had before. But did it ever occur to you that this type of thinking can have dramatic effects on your emotions and the way that you actually feel? Scientific research has proven that actively taking on the physical state of a happy person by, say, forcing a smile can cause you to actually feel happier [1]. In other words, we (humans) don’t tremble because we’re angry or cry because we feel sad; rather, we are aware of feeling angry because we tremble, and we feel sad because we cry [1].

There is no question that life is going to throw everything it has at you. It’s your job to battle through the haters, negativity, losses, disappointments, and downs in life. Life is way too short not to feel happy everyday you're alive.

Life is going to break you down but the real question is.. how do you plan to get back up? It could be hidden in the actions in how you physically carry yourself. Try it. It may work. But like anything in life, you have to wholeheartedly believe in it.

Fake it ‘till you make it.
