Lack of confidence is a roadblock for so many people in so many situations:
Getting an education, applying for a new job, leaving a bad relationship, going after a good relationship–you name it and you’ll find folks who are not moving forward because they lack confidence.
Fake it ’til you make it is an effective way to get off pause and push play. A way to get back in the game. Or get in it for the very first time.
Hey, look. It’s not just you. You’re not alone. We all have our insecurities. Trust me: there are many people afraid to make that same first move you’re afraid of. Maybe even me.
So put on a good front. Act like you know what you’re doing, like you have all the confidence in the world. Fake it if you must. Because once the behavior changes, a more positive attitude isn’t far behind.
Don’t be tentative–embrace the situation and the effort as important ways to learn. And a way to get what you want.
What’s the worst that can happen?
And even more important: What’s the BEST that can happen?
So pull up your big girl panties, take a deep breath and dive right into it.
I suspect you’ll be surprised at what happens. In a good way.
