The internet is swarming with bits of dubious advice. Little throwaway comments that shouldn’t be taken to heart, yet people do exactly that don’t they?
FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT is one of the most annoying for me.
What is wrong with good old honesty? I’ve always stuck to the view that it is better to be humble, honest and prepared to work my socks off till I learn what I need to and have all I need to achieve a goal.
Maybe it is because I dislike having the word FAKE anywhere near my sense of achievement that this saying irks me so much.
Am I missing something? Are you faking it till you make it? Is it working for you?
