Today I want to share a big mindset that took me more than half year to shift.
This took me a lot of courage to be honest to myself that this is a problem. And if I don’t change it, it will cause a big problem in the long term.
Back then I was a huge believer of “Fake it till you make it”. So for instance, when at work, I’m doing a presentation to the vice president, president and all the other managers. I was really nervous at the beginning. But I really want to be the best among all the engineers in our company. So I will try and try and try. Or you can say like fake and fake and fake. Fake a perfect figure that those managers want. The gestures, the way of talking, the clothing, and everything.
I strove to build the fabulous figure that managers want. So as to leave an impression, great impression of an girl who has been working so hard on her projects. She spent tons of time and efforts on the projects. Dedicated to work. And hopefully can get this girl promoted or raise of salary.
In a short term, yes it did work. I got promoted. Salary was raised. But somehow, I felt that figure was not me. Well, It was me who did the presentation but it’s not me. You know what I’m saying? I found out that the fantastic figure was the person managers want me to be. And after a period of time, with fake-it-till-you-make-it mindset, I formed a great person that others want me to be. It was not authentic me.
From that time, I kept telling myself to be myself. Be the authentic me. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.
I can do a great presentation by being me. I don’t have to be someone else to do it.
I found that with being-authentic-me mindset and action, it’s easier to bridge connection with others. People are more willing to trust me, or happy to build relationship with me. Moreover, I became happier and wayyy confident about myself and things I made. The results I accomplished are also better than what I expected. These all happened naturally.
It’s MY LIFE. I only have one life and this life is too short be somebody else. This is why i’m building my online business at the moment. I know this is where my passion is. I believe deeply that as long as I keep working,learning, doing, optimizing, and then I can achieve the goal I desire soooo bad in my life.
