My favorite motivational slogan...
“Fake it ’til you make it.”
-- Mary Kay
This means that you should act and think as if you have achieved a level of success or goal before you actually receive the gratification. It may sound silly or may even be hard to understand, but this is sound Psychology. In a study conducted by Schachter and Singer in 1962, it was concluded that emotions follow your behavior. This has been supported by various other scientific studies, research and most recently solidified R.F. Baumeister in 2009.
So, YES – “Fake it ‘til you make it” is excellent advice.
