23-071 Act As If #1

Today’s Mandala Message: Be who you are meant to be.

This week we look at Principle #12 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Act As If. For today’s MotD I set my intention to ponder how my actions would be different if I acted as if I was already who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do. I could see where I would be making different choices, I would be more confident in myself and my abilities, I would carry myself differently, and present myself differently. Hmmm…there may be something to this principle.

With regards to what it means to “Act as If”, Canfield states: “This means thinking like, talking like, dressing like, acting like, and feeling like the person who has already achieved your goal. Acting as if sends powerful commands to your subconscious mind to find creative ways to achieve your goals.

So how about you? Would your actions and behavior change if you acted as if you were already who/what you wanted to be? Can you start acting like that now?

“Confidence is a habit
that can be developed
by acting as if
you already had the confidence
you desire to have.”

— Brian Tracy
