Fake It Until You Make It

fake it until you make it www.maryhumphrey.comWhat does fake it until you make it mean? It does not mean to be someone that you are not (outside of your value system). It is always important to be your genuine self, but develop the mentality that you can do what you set your mind to doing.

If you want to write a book, when are you starting?

I you want to change jobs, have you sent the first application?

If you want to obtain a degree, have you talked to the financial aid office (or applied for your first class)?

You can do this. Fake it until you make it.

Be the person that you intend to be today. Guess what? This person is you, you just need to give her permission.

From an article that I wrote several years ago, “We have so much to give, so much we can do with imagination.  We are the master gardeners at whatever we do.  We are writers because we think we are.  We are weavers because we think we are.” Do your research and take the step!

What can you do today for your tomorrow? What do you want to do today, and is something holding you back? What successes have you had in your life where you “faked it” through steps in the process?

The Ideal Client

Is there such a thing as an ideal client?

I would love to help each woman who does not recognize her personal ability to change and grow. It is ingrained in me to say, “You are worth every moment that you put into your life, and you can do whatever you put your mind to doing!”

Honestly, not everyone is an ideal client, and I am in business to work with women that are committed to sculpting their life into a masterpiece composed from their dreams.

Who is the ideal client?

They believe and practice honesty.

They are fun and can laugh at life itself, their own mistakes, as well as the mistakes of others.

They are open-minded to change and to new ideas.

They know there are no true failures. They know that the only way to fail is to quit.

They have forward thinking. They think about “the now” and “the future,” and they do not dwell in the past, nor do they blame their current choices on the past.

They are responsible. They know that their choices bring action and results.

They love to learn and grow. They perceive a challenge as a growth spurt.

They know that life consists of choices made, including not making a choice.

They are respectful of others.

They are committed to their own life.

They do not make excuses, instead, they do what it takes to move forward and take responsibility.

My ideal client is ready to put time, effort, and money into her future. She knows that her personal investment will have perfect returns because she owns it!
