Does faking it help you in the long run?
Can ‘faking it’ get you places or get you nowhere?
What you need to know:
- According to the writer, ‘faking it to make it can result in trust issues.
- The truth will eventually come out and it can ruin relationships and reputations.
Originality is everything. It is essential to be yourself and be original. How can one make it by being fake? Honesty and sincerity matter a lot in life. Without this, trust cannot be achieved or maintained. I believe faking has a concise life as the truth will come out now or later. All respect and credit earned get washed away. Name earned through hard work with the complete fact of being self stays longer rather than false impression.
Visualising a dream is one thing, but faking it until you make it is another thing altogether.
”No one can fake things for a longer period of time. Why not have a winning attitude instead.” – Lamiya Siraj
Hiding your true self by acting is wrong. What if you don’t make it?
In many professions like sales, maybe such an attitude is applied. However, just to sell things, lying about certain elements will only ruin the company’s reputation. Since I was in sales, I have known this first-hand. But this was always an open debate. Being transparent and authentic is essential. It might certainly not be easy, but it’s essential.
I don’t mind initially faking a positive attitude to cultivate the habit of being happy. Still, I have seen people fake a smile to get over negative emotions, just to look like they have control over their feelings. It is important to be original and not fake it in life.
