why-fake-it-till-you-make-it-is-terrible-advice

— Amy Cuddy

If you are currently trying to get somewhere or accomplish a goal, but as of yet haven’t quite made it, you’ve probably heard the one-line advice, “Fake it till you make it.” That statement sounds cute but nothing could be more terrible than pretending to be something or to have something when you know you don’t.

Don’t Be Fooled By the Rocks that I Got (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 24)

Don’t Be Fooled By the Rocks that I Got

“Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got
I’m still, I’m still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from.”
— Jennifer Lopez

Never forget where you come from. This is the simple, yet powerful message that Jennifer Lopez raps about in her 2002 song “Jenny from the Block”. Essentially, this song is about Lopez’s difficult upbringing, how she has not changed despite her fame, and never forgets who she is and where she came from (The Bronx). This song is also a testament to how our struggles make us into the people we are today. Without our struggles, who would we be?

You’re Awesome, Not Perfect (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 23)

You’re Awesome Not Perfect

“It’s the imperfections that make things beautiful.”
— Jenny Han

No one and nothing are perfect. If you find something or someone who is perfect, you’ll find out sooner or later that it’s not as perfect as it’s cracked up to be.

You Can’t Be Everyone, but You Can Be You

You Cant Be Everyone but You Can Be You

There is only one kind of every person in the world. No matter where you go, you will never find another person just like you. You will never find another person who can do exactly what you can do exactly the way you can do it. You can be you because you’re the only person in the world who can be you. Oscar Wilde said as much when he said, “Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.” Read more…
