Act As If…

I first heard this phrase years ago when I was watching one of my favorite movies, Boiler Room.

The senior broker in the movie was referring to when  a new recruit was having a tough time being successful at making cold calls. He was explaining that you could be whatever/whoever you wanted to be on the phone. At the time he was training Giovanni (the new recruit) with the goal of to get him comfortable on the phone and building confidence with his sales skills. When he “Acted As If”, he stopped worrying about himself and what he wasn’t saying correctly. Took a look around at who were the top salesmen in the company, thought about who we needed to be. And all of a sudden he began to say everything correctly and started closing sales.

At the time, I took the phrase for what it was worth. Until recently it HIT ME!

You see, we are all in the position we are in because of how we have acted in the past and what our current thoughts are.

So if you continue to do and think the same as you are, then you will continue to get the same result.

Most of us know what it takes to achieve our goals. When we set our GOALS we are planning and motivating ourselves on what we will achieve in the future. Instead, what if you put your mindset of already being in that position of where you want to be?

Ask Yourself:
What will your life look like when YOU have hit your goals and are FIT and healthy?
What does each day look like for you?
How will you feel about yourself?
What will your thoughts be?
How will you act?
What will be inside your fridge?
What is your breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Bottom line is, where ever you WANT to be, you need to start acting like it…


Visualize when you are at your goal weight, goal income, accomplishing the things you dream of. Who will you be? And how will you think?

Start doing that now and you will start moving in that direction today. If you continue to
focus on the things that are stopping from moving towards where you want to be…then you will do exactly that, NOT move forward.

When you start to focus on what life will look like, feel and be like when you hit your goals and dreams you will start to take the right steps towards getting there.

We all have the power to change things for ourselves and its going to take more than just what you WANT to do…It takes HOW you are acting/thinking about what you want, that is going to get your there.
