I’ve never been a fan of the “fake it until you make it” philosophy. My opinion has always been: try and be honest with where you’re at. That is until 2013 rolled around and I actually decided to set some goals for myself. Or one broad goal as it stands: “Be a sexy badass!”
Now, I’m not going to sit down and type out that I want to lose x amount of weight and here’s my diet plan. No. That will come in time and is not going to be the main point of my goal. Of course I’ll be losing weight this year and keep you updated on that, but I don’t want this goal to be just a diet plan.
The first step in becoming this sexy badass version of myself is getting my confidence up. And the only way I can do that right now is to fake that I have this crazy amount of confidence, and keep telling myself that I have this amount of confidence until I actually start to believe it deep in the core of my being.
There is so much in life that I have done, can do, and will do again. The only thing that’s stopping me from having what I want out of life is my lack of genuine self confidence. So I will fake that until it’s there.
One of my weakest areas is my romantic life. I can think of every reason WHY someone wouldn’t want to be with me and will convince myself that I’m going to get rejected so I just shut everything down from the get go. That has officially come to and end. A sexy badass me has no time for those head games. If a guy digs me and I dig him, I’m gonna let it run and see where it goes.
(I’ll keep you updated on that.)
P.S: In assisting me with my sexy badass goal, one of my guy friends said he’d take me to the shooting range and show me how to use a gun. I’m not a gun nut or anything, I think it’s just something cool to know how to do.
