Fake It ‘Till You Make It Works in Reverse

Let’s talk about the little phrase, Fake it ‘til you make it. It works in reverse and a lot of lady with finger uppeople don’t know that. What is “fake it ’til you make it”? We’ve all heard it. It just means that if you want to meet a goal or you want to do something (anything you want to do or have in life), you’ll find someone who’s done it and do exactly what they do, have the same mindset they do,  think what they do, and completely imitate them in every way.

Doing that programs your subconscious mind, which is just like a computer, and which does not take a joke and it creates your life. That’s its purpose, to take exactly what is programmed into it and to create your life accordingly. The other day I was thinking that there are people that don’t realize that it works in reverse.

I met a woman who bought a picture frame that showed her husband was in prison. It had bars across where you would see his face. She thought it was so funny. She put his picture in the frame, gave it to him for a gift, and showed everybody. She put it on the counter where everyone who came in could see it. She really got into it with her emotions as she put it out to the universe. Guess what happened? Amazingly, although he had no previous criminal record, he ended up in prison. Why? Because she faked it. She had focused on it with emotion even though it was not something she really wanted! Her mind got the message that this is what I should create in her life. In this case, it was her husband in prison.

It just so happened that he owned the property where one of his workers had parked a piece of heavy equipment, which he had stolen. The huge price of the equipment made this stolen property a felony and he couldn’t prove that a worker had stolen it, therefore, he was liable.

Another example is Christopher Reeves, who played the role of a paraplegic in a movie really got into the role. As an outstanding actor, he became a paraplegic mentally and emotionally. He was so much into it that after the movie was over, he became a paraplegic. How did that happen? A very strange accident occurred.They looked at the video over and over and over again and they couldn’t figure out how it happened. He was riding a horse and the way it happened defied any kind of natural law. Of course it wasn’t a coincidence. His subconscious mind created that.

Here’s another example. A little boy lived in a very nice neighborhood where a drive by shooting would never occur. Because of his school project, he got interested in it and he started really focusing on it. He started writing about it. He went to the White House and was even on TV talking about this. He was just a young boy in elementary school. Of course, while he was actually focusing on it, he was programming it into his mind. Amazingly, a strange thing happened. It was something that has never happened before or after in his neighborhood. There was a very unique drive-by shooting and the bullet accidentally hit and killed one person – this little boy! What a coincidence. Not really! Fake ‘till you make it’ works in reverse too!

Just think about it today as you go through your day, what are you emotionalizing? What are you ‘faking it until you make it’ on? What are you focusing on with your emotions (whether you want it or not)? Your mind does not take a joke. The universe does not take a joke. It’s just like a computer; you’ll get what you program into it.



What Makes a Thought More Powerful?

woman deep in thoughtThe more you focus on something the more powerful it becomes. Think of the things in your life that are concerning you right now. If you want them gone, quit worrying about them! If they are great and you want to keep them in your life, keep thinking about them so they don’t slip away.

If you want something to stay in your life, think about how great it is, feel gratitude for it, praise it, and even tell others how happy you are to have it. I’m sure you’ve seen the situation where a person put their focus on having a beautiful, romantic relationship with another person. It occupied their thoughts all day and night and therefore; it manifested in their life. In fact, they got married.

But wait – after the marriage, the guy put it out of his mind…I mean he got the girl so why should he spend time thinking about it anymore? Right?

Wrong! If he takes the relationship for granted and does not allow it to occupy his thoughts anymore, the energy on the relationship lessens and lessens, and the relationship eventually goes.

This is a mistake that many people make. Once something they wanted is in their life, they forget to maintain the focus on it. It certainly doesn’t have to be the same energy as before it came into your life because you were creating it at that time; however you must not ignore it energetically. You must keep it in your thoughts in a positive way and it will stay in your life in a positive way. You can make good things happen more quickly by thinking about them more.
