This post is regarding self-modelling. How to become a better version of yourself?
So you’ve decided what you have to become. You’re even working on it. But, somehow the things don’t appear to be falling in place. Maybe, you are procrastinating things and living under the illusion that it’ll get better with practice. Simply put, you are just not putting in the right amount of effort. Or maybe lots of efforts, but not in the right direction. As I mentioned earlier, you are living under an illusion.
Fake it until you make it 👊👊
You somehow attract the person you become. All you need to do is, make things appear real. In order to achieve this, you need to visualize things. When a writer thinks of a story, he first sees it in his mind. He makes up the characters, the world and even minor details. This detailing helps him with the reality. The more real this world becomes in his mind, the more sure he becomes about his story, and the more he is driven towards his story. Well what did you do? You drove the story towards yourself and thus kept on living in the illusion. Understand, that your future is an unwritten story. The question is, what you, as a writer of this story has imagined? How and where do you see yourself?
See the person you want to become: Draw comparison between what you are and what you want to be. Write down every single thing because you are bound to forget it in the long run. Anyways, the person you want to become should be your ultimate motivation. Once you have every single detail of that person, you’ll know what you lack write now. What you need to work upon. The results might amaze you!
You become what you think: Imagine that you are a salesman and want to become the manager. But all you do is worry about your sales. This worry is continuously suppressing your desire and is demotivating you. In the long run, you are likely to suppress that desire completely, because you will act according to the energy of a salesman and not the manager.On the other hand, if you have a detailed image of the manager’s seat and what it feels like, you are bound to work with that energy. You are bound to be connected to that personality, because yes, you yourself drew out that connection. You will become the manager very soon.
Why this technique?
You are a product. Make sure the product appears great. By this process, you are selling it on it’s first appearance, even before you open your mouth. This way people don’t take you for granted. Now when people have their perspective of what you have shown them about yourself, you will start working immediately in that direction, because in reality, there is no such product. But dear, now you have a deadline and it has been your habit to meet the deadlines! But remember 2 things:
1. You are fooling others but you can’t afford to do that with yourself.
2. Think a thousand times before choosing.
