How To "Fake It 'Til You Make It" To Be Successful: Understanding The Ways Of The MindLots of literature on this subject but we'll try to simplify in the most common language. You have three kind of systems of the mind: a. conscious, that represents your current awareness; b. subconscious, that we aren't totally aware but have access to it; c. unconscious, we don't have awareness and access to it. 

Like it or not, the three are constantly part of our lives. The conscious part is what we control, but random thoughts and feelings that we don't want, can strike us anytime, if we don't influence our subconscious. To achieve something you're not, you must go one step beyond it, you must believe it fully in order to influence your whole body to think so and act like it. That includes your brain. The trick is to learn how to influence your subconscious mind. You do that by going from a conscious state to an unconscious by acting the way you want to become. 

One way to tap into the subconscious mind is to repeat positive affirmations over and over to yourself. You're making yourself believing it more and more, so in a way you are "fake it 'till you make it" by influencing your subconscious mind.

If you feel discomfort in an particular situation, maybe is because you put your body in a fearful position whenever that situation comes around and no wonder fear and doubt hit you, you feel paralyzed. Although your inside tells you to go away from that situation, "fake it"!

If you live in fear you'll attract fear, if you live in courage you'll attract courage. The same is truth with your peers, if you surround yourself with small minded people, you will become small minded. Join the open minded people group and...
