Acting as if you are already successful, is one of the best ways to be successful. Now don’t get me wrong, you can’t just sit around and expect success to fall into your lap just because you think and act as if you are successful. You will actually have roll up your sleeves and do the work.
So many times I find people who are rolling up their sleeves to do the work, but they are not as successful as they could be. And it’s usually because of their belief system. And that is where acting as if is as important as doing the work itself.
Here are 4 great reasons to act as if
Acting as if promotes positive self-talk. And when you are your own best cheerleader you will have more success.
Acting as if gives you a sense of confidence. When you are confident others pick up on it. Friend’s family members, coworkers and clients are more likely to follow your lead when you are leading with confidence.
Acting as if gives you a positive outlook. The positive outlook is created because in your mind’s eye you see that you have already accomplished your goal.
Acting as if will give you more energy. When you see yourself successful and accomplishing a specific goal you cannot help but feel energized and excited.
The next time you are faced with a challenge whether it is to climb to the top of a mountain, or to climb to the top of the sales board, I want you to remember to act as if you have already reached your goal. Tell yourself that you can do it and move forward into the direction of your goals with confidence. You will notice that you will have more energy and excitement and these emotions along with a positive outlook will help propel you to the top! Then you won’t be acting as if you are a success you will have succeeded!
