Fake it till you make it – is this really good advice y/n?

Depends on how you look at it. I’m sounding like an economist. I think it was Paul Zane Pilzer who said, the world would be a better place if there were more one-hand economists since when forecasting you’d often hear them say “on the one hand…..but on the other hand…..” But back to…

Someone shared a story with me about a young woman who dresses like the epitome of success yet everyone she runs into somehow senses and immediately shares with  her that she needs some work in the self confidence department.

I understand the philosophy behind faking it till you make it but I think most people focus on ‘looking’ successful – the power suit, the car, the trappings of success and not on the internal stuff that needs the attention and ultimately makes the person.

  1. Hmmm. . . Can we really ‘fake it till we make it’?

    It hardly ever works; and it usually does more harm than good as an individual or organization. Personally, I will not do business with persons that prove to be dishonest; it’s bad for business

    In my opinion, a better option would be to set high standards for yourself and make a consistent effort to improve. Track your progress and set the bar higher each time.
