Fake it ‘till You Make it.
We have all heard this saying before. And, if you are like me, you probably have tried it a few times.
Maybe you have faked your life on social media. You faked how much money you earn, how awesome your life is, or your relationships with family and friends. Maybe you have faked your feelings – that you never get hurt or never get upset. You might also be faking how you feel about your spouse and have uncertainty towards the future of your marriage.
But faking it till you make it doesn’t lead you to feeling more powerful. In fact, it commonly leads you to have more insecurity.
Commonly, people who are fake it till they make it – end up living in worry. “What if somebody ‘finds out’ that I am not as talented, as rich, as successful, or as strong as I pretend to be?”
