There is a saying in the business world, “Fake it until you make it.” What this means is pretend until you feel like you’ve mastered something. So, if you are given a promotion and you feel out of your league; you are nervous or unsure, pretend you have confidence and that you know what you are doing. Everyone lacks complete confidence when trying something new or stepping into a new role. It is natural to be nervous. With enough repetition and learning you can master any task and soon you won’t have to fake it anymore.
I read a recent blog by Mama Gena on her School of Womanly Arts Website where she posed the question, “How would you be if you were beautiful?” Some women said they would only wear beautiful clothing. One woman said she would be nicer to her husband. If they truly believed they were beautiful, they would behave differently than they do now.
So, I want to pose the question, “How would you be if you had your perfect, ideal body?” would you only dress yourself in flattering, alluring clothes? Would you strut around naked in your room? Would you wear that bikini you have always been too embarrassed to put on? How would you behave, think, and feel differently if you already had the perfect body?
Maybe you’d only eat the foods that you really enjoy. Maybe you would stride into every room with your head held high, your shoulders back and the knowledge that every eye is on you. I’d like you to really think about how your life would be different and write down everything that comes to mind.
Now look at your list and figure out what things you could do right now even without the ideal body. How could you fake it until you make it? Why can’t you only wear flattering clothes now? What stops you from strutting your gorgeous self around? You deserve to only eat foods that nourish you and bring you joy. Stop punishing yourself by waiting to do the things you really want. Be your ideal self now. Act as if you have the perfect body- treat yourself like royalty and I promise your body will respond.
I would love to hear some of the ways you would be if you had a perfect, fabulous, hot body. Leave me a comment and let’s dream and talk together.
