Yes. I really just wrote that: Fake it Till You Make it!

Why?

Because sometimes you need to start embodying the person you want to be.

This is grounded in Neuroscience. You may have heard of that expression – what fires together wires together. This is true – the more events, thoughts etc are connected, the stronger that connection becomes, the axons are myelinated – which is similar to the insulation on an electric cable. It strengthens the connection.

When we are working towards something new, something different, a new way of living, being, seeing, understanding, we need to start making these new connections. And this is hard. So, if we want to move forward, we have to FAKE IT, so our brains can start seeing the future that we want and then… the connections start to strengthen and then it’s more likely to happen.
