The toolbox used to fix this includes:
Acting the part: “act if” – as if you were already the person that you wish to be. The way to do this is to literally pretend you are a great method actor – preparing for the big role, immersing yourself in the characters role. (Of course you will feel silly – but the guarantee is within three days your inner thoughts will start believing this picture).
Boosting self-image: Training your thought patterns involves thinking it consistently. The methods include dressing to the role you aspire to, cultivating optimism and a “have a go” mental attitude.
Emulating powerful people: Siimon has a “picture board” where lofty role models and characters he would most like to be are prominently displayed. He suggests also drawing a line through the relationships that don’t build up self-image. The energy sappers and losers should have limited access to you.
You may feel a little embarrassed by Siimons approach. There is a lot of truth in this chapter, and I feel the reader will accept positive self-image does result in positive outcomes. There are many books like “The Secret” that make so much more of this feature. My recommendation – Don’t be too quick to dismiss these ideas. After all; you miss 100% of shots you don’t take.
The “recommended treatment” will possibly create personal embarrassment if it were to be acknowledged publicly. However, this is a private recipe that is not physically tough. If it is as important to you as it is to me; you, like me, will take the steps needed and just do it. It certainly has no chance to work if you don’t even attempt it.
