Whether you imagine yourself to be successful, professional, or famous… you hold a particular image of the kind of person you want to be in your heart. At times you may try to act like that person and find yourself falling short—the reason being that you haven’t learned what you need to be that person. That does not mean you will not become that person, you just haven’t gained the experience to be her. It is totally possible, though, it just takes focus.
Most often you hear fake it until you make it! I don’t believe in that. I think if you work diligently towards the kind of person you want to be, you will be successful. It takes time. If you look towards your past, anything extravagant and beautiful took time to accomplish. It didn’t happen overnight, so don’t expect to reach your goals in one day. The person you are now needs to be embraced. The qualities that make you, you, are not perfect—nobody is perfect. Put your strengths to good use and improve on your weakness. Being the best you is all anyone can do. It’s hard to do this without listening to other people’s comments and opinions about what you should be doing or how you should act. It does take confidence and courage to decide who you want to be in this world and recognize that you need to grow into that person.
I know a lot of the times we just want to fit in, not be awkward, or too different. The sooner you recognize that you can be happy just being you, the happier you will be—people will be drawn to your happy confidence. Don’t fake it until you make it. Be true to yourself and improve along the way. Before you know it, you will naturally be the person you always saw yourself to be.
