“fake it”

The band Hot Chelle Rae has a very catchy tune out right now titled, “Tonight Tonight”.  In the chorus of the song they sing, “I don’t know if I’ll make it, but watch how good I’ll fake it.”  What a great line about the power of positive thinking.

In college, I knew a young man whose sole desire was to be a stage actor.  It wasn’t his acting skills that impressed me, though he was good, but his dedication to the craft and the way he talked about his future.  “I’m going to be an actor,” he would say smiling.  Even though others around him whined about the difficulty of actually making it, he never wavered.  A mindset we all should have.

 Be positive in everything you do.  Your attitude is more than half the battle in every challenge you face.  So…“fake it”.  You must believe in yourself before anyone else will.
