Stardate: 4th September 2014
We applaud children for their ability to pretend. We pay actors hundreds of thousands of dollars for the same ability… All-the-while, crying down our fellow adults for not being ‘real’ enough. Humans are so confused… so very confused.
There is a place for fake.
The customer isn’t always right.
Sometimes the customer is a cunt. But being a good businessperson means slapping on your most sincere pretend smile, spreading your imaginary broad back even broader, and rolling with it.
Sometimes, your life decisions go against the grain…leaving you as your only supporter.
Sometimes, ‘here’ is the last place you want to be.
Sometimes, you’re broke and hungry.
Sometimes, you’re unhappy. But, becoming the success you know you can be means slapping on that fake confidence, rubbing that pretend-full tummy, and sauntering cooly in to the belly of the beast… Cus if you wore your true circumstance outwardly, it would remain your reality.
Fake it til you make it.
Make-believe isn’t only a childhood indulgence.
