I have a secret!



I have a secret.

It’s a good one.

Come on over and I’ll whisper it in your ear.

You may not believe it.

But it’s truth.

Y’all, sometimes I am A FAKE!

What? Huh? How can that be true? Read on….

Last week a yoga friend told me that she was amazed by my confidence.

Well, I’ve got news for y’all.

I’m not as confident as I appear. As you “think” I must be.

Sometimes, I’m faking it.

YES. I. Am. A. Confidence. Fake.

Because sometimes, I’m faking it until I make it.

And guess what? It works.

We all have moments of insecurity. They happen. You know the moments. When you doubt. Maybe you cry. Worry. Get angry. Feel FRUSTRATED.

Those are the moments when you need to smile more. Connect to positivity. Have faith. Love. Keep going. Be determined. Believe in you can get there.

Because at the end of the day you don’t need to be confident to BECOME confident.

We have to fake it until we make it.

So if you are feeling doubtful. Scared. Anxious. Like you aren’t good enough. Or that you don’t deserve success, abundance, or happiness.

Remember that you deserve it. That you are awesome.

And believe that you can do it. Believe that you are confident. And FAKE it until you make it.

When you are scared, keep going. Breathe through the fear. Don’t stop.

Because one day you will wake up and realize that you are as awesome as you tell yourself you are.  But being awesome and confident starts by believing you are awesome and confident. And sometimes, that has to start with PRETENDING you are confident. By faking confidence even if you have no idea what you are doing. By jumping off the high dive for the first time. By diving into the unknown with enthusiasm.

I gave you a truth. Now it’s my turn for a dare. I DARE YOU.

Fake confidence. Dream bigger than ever before. Reach outside your comfort zone. And do it with zest, even if you are uncomfortable. Give it your all, even if you have NO CLUE what your all is.

Dive in.

Because you just may accomplish more than you have every accomplished before!

What do you say?

    I love this! I am feeling really confident about the future right now and I don’t have to fake it! I will totally fake it until I make it when that time comes though. 🙂

    I’m keeping this up on my computer today as I keep working on my blog. Trying not to think about what other people will think of me/the site and instead going about this by faking complete and total confidence 🙂
