Self-modelling

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.

    1. Good thoughts. There was this experience famously shared by the great Arnold Scwarzenegger, while he was struggling through his body building career. A friend narrated to me that Arnie requested some auto dealer a chance to sit in an expensive model car which was put on display in the Mercedes Benz showroom. Reluctantly the shop manager allowed him to sit inside the car for a few minutes. He didn’t test drive the vehicle, just got to sit on the back seat for a few minutes. Later when he became Mr. World, he shared with close friends that those few minutes he spent inside that car were among the most inspirational moments of his life.. inside the peace and quiet of the car, he felt the safety, luxury and the expensive taste that the vehicle offers its customer. So his inspiration was driven by the desire to grow himself to that level where he can afford to buy this car. That thought drove him to work better, earn better and save for that car. I don’t know if this is a real event, but I learned that if you can’t see and feel your dreams, you could never fulfil them. Faking might not be the right word, but you have to believe that you are only this little closer to your dream, and all you need is to put that 1% extra at all times.

    2. Since the Universe is one huge intermixed energetic flow, thoughts can certainly materialize. However, we know that we always need to be careful when we wish either to have and get whatever we believe is good. My long life experience shows that some people would have definitely been better off without some things that later killed them. Material side is just to mask the lack of true happiness, because we always are trying to get things and we hope these things will give us what we lack. Material side does not replace the need for growing one’s soul and mind. We consist of 3 basic levels: body, mind and soul.

    3. One day at school the kids could choose between drawing a picture of the affirmation “I stand serene amidst the crashing of breaking worlds” or “Fake it til you make it.” Obviously we had talked about it because something relevant came up which provoked the conversation. I’ll try and find the pictures of what they drew. Hilarious!

    4. As a soft tissue specialist, movement analyst and performance coach who runs his own clinic, I commend your honesty and subject matter.

      I don’t often say this to many people and am not the type of person to usually comment. Spoken from the heart and you have my respect.

      I have a recent post you may enjoy called “I used to be a body builder, before I grew up,” it’s a 6000 word spiel, but it deals more with the clinical element of soft tissue principality, biotensegrity and psychology.

      Give it a read some time if you are ever free. If you like it, if you agree with it, then let’s work on some online ideas together? I have a platform through my clinic and I’m looking for more people’s stories to be able to share for motivation, to help others.

      If not…then take care and keep doing you!

      From reading the comments on this feed you are obviously inspiring people, which inspires me.

    5. This is such great advice. I am a starting photogenic model and have received so much rejection, sometimes I am convinced to even quit but I am then reminded of why I chose modelling in the first place. This is why I have still stuck around.
