To be a great champion, you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.” – Muhammad Ali

Today is Monday, May 11th, and this is week #19 of 52 Mondays w/ Sherea VeJauan. Our goal is to break this year down – one Monday at a time.

Today, I want to encourage you to act as if you are already a success

f. Many of us have heard the terms, “Fake it ‘til you make it.”, “Act as if.”, and, “To do is to be.” This week, we are going to act as if, dress like we want to be addressed, pretend, play dress up, or whatever it is you need to do to bring your future into the now. If you start acting as if you’ve already achieved your goal, you will find that your success will come to pass much sooner. Each Sunday, at my church, we teach our youth students how to act their way into a feeling by practicing a B.O.S.S. The Movement exercise called the Enthusiastic Drill. The kids stand to their feet and shout with enthusiasm… “To be enthusiastic, you have to act enthusiastic!” No matter how they were feeling before that drill, everything shifted to pure joy and excitement.

This is how we must be as goal-setters. Every day won’t feel like a ray of sunshine. We must act our way into a feeling, as we act our way into our future. Listen, you may not be into the whole acting thing. It’s ok. Maybe you can work on your speaking skills, building your confidence, or just paying more attention to your body language.
