I am a marketer, blogger and content creator, but it took me years to get to where I am today.
Whatever you believe yourself to be, that’s what you will become and it takes more than wishful thinking to turn into the person you really want to be, it takes faith and a lot of action. Trial and error, sleepless nights, a clear vision and a mapped out strategy of where you want to go and how you plan to get there.
I am obsessed with Ted Talks and when I was starting my career, I came across one by Amy Cuddy, an American social psychologist, author and speaker. Her message resonated with me and I attribute it to helping me get to where I am today. It was simple. Instead of “Faking it till you make it”, “Fake it till you become it”. My interpretation of her message was not for me to go about life pretending to be something I’m not, but instead, it is about letting go of fears and making my true authentic self shine.
