One way to revamp beliefs that keep you locked into fear-based behaviors is to “fake it ‘til you make it.” This simple method can be difficult at first, but quickly gets easier with practice.
All that is needed is for you to choose a behavior in which you no longer wish to participate. Tell yourself you will no longer behave this way and then follow through. There is no need to make a public proclamation to others, for many times those you confide in will ridicule and test you.
You may have to change other behaviors in order to support your chosen one. For example, you may choose to stop overeating. The only way to do this is to . . . stop overeating. You may have to change other behaviors such as turn down offers to dine out, not munch while watching TV and drink a glass of water instead of having a bedtime snack.
Whatever you want to change, role-play as though it were already a reality. There is no need to whine or make statements such as, “I’m on a diet so I can’t have ice cream.” That will only lock you into the victim mode. Avoid statements that make you seem noble that will lock you into ego trips.
Stop the behavior. Try it and see how it works for you. No one has ever died practicing this exercise, however, many have learned to live! Practice daily whatever it is you wish to experience. Do not let others or your fears stop you from living the life of your dreams. There is a lot more you can do and experience than you currently give yourself credit for. Dream big, Fake it ‘til you make it, and be in joy!
