“Fake it till you make it,” you can apply this motto in many different things in our lives. You can use it in building self-confidence, creating a positive mindset, or mastering different skills and even in your lifestyle.
Bright Side wants you to try to “fake it” with this article and implement some of these habits into your life and see the difference in your life.
- Talk less, listen more.
This rule is implied even when you’re not conversing with a friend. A most important point in business is listening to people’s needs. According to Steve Jobs, “It doesn’t make sense to hire smart people and then tell them what to do, we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do.” Most of the people always say, what they don’t like and what they want to change. Communication is the key for everything and listening is a part of it.
- Get out of the office.
Don’t do everyday tasks at the office; try something out of your office too. You can talk to a customer or have a meeting with clients out of your office. By doing this, you can change your perspective, expand your knowledge and network. You can learn more by leaving the office from time to time instead of sitting at a desk.
- Choose friends wisely.
If you want to be successful in your life, even if it is hard, you need to re-evaluate your friends. You have to choose friends who are helping you to be your best self. Start to find friends who can help you, if your goal is to become wealthy.
- Know when to stop.
Don’t work late night, or bring work to home. It’s not something that rich people do; you have to push yourself to the limit. You should separate your work from your home and personal life. Inefficient or burned out and leave work at work if you don’t want to end up exhausted.
- Never stop learning.
We live in a world where every time a change. Almost every day there are new products, innovations, and technology. You need to constantly educate yourself about everything that is going on with the books, lectures, videos, and podcasts if you want to stay on top of things and be successful.
- Have a source of passive income.
Lot of people thinks that rich people spend all of their money on designer clothes, expensive gadgets, jewelry or cars. But, they don’t waste their money. They make their money work for them. A common source of additional money among the rich people is an income based on a side business, investments and dividends or on real estate. You can also make you richer without your immediate participation when having money in a high-yield savings account.
- Value your time.
If you scroll down trough social media or watching videos, you’re actually wasting your valuable time. Instead of scrolling through social networks you can work on something to your personal development, your health, volunteering or networking.
- Read every day.
The Daily Success Habits Of Wealthy Individuals, wealthy people choose reading over TV according to the Tom Corley’s research that he described in his book Rich Habits. And also 88% of wealthy people read for at least 30 minutes a day. You can help increase your knowledge by anything from self-improvement literature to news, which will make you more open-minded and will help you at work.
- Put yourself first.
You should take care of your body and mind. And also dedicate time to it every single day. You can do whatever makes you feel great, recharges and relaxes you such as lifting weights or playing tennis, spending time with your loved ones or being alone, taking a bath or meditating. You can help yourself to prevent from burning out by regular health check-ups and a nutritious diet.
- Keep a plan.
Write down to-do lists, short-term and long-term goals, and even dreams in a book or in your phone. Write down everything that happens like your daily thoughts and all the ups and downs of your day. By writing down all those things, you can clear out your head so that you have more room for greater thoughts and ideas and you don’t forget anything important.
