If there’s one thing I realized tonight it was the power of that quote.
"Fake it til you make it" … I really never liked the saying before. Maybe I didn’t like the way it was described to me when I first heard it. But I know I thought to myself: why would I fake something? Why wouldn’t I just be sure of myself and then act accordingly? Faking it never made sense to me..
But I finally get how to apply it to my life and more specifically I know how to apply it to dance. The quote hadn’t even come up in conversation or I don’t think I read it anywhere recently…it just occurred to me during one of the cyphers earlier. But wooo i’m glad it did.
I don’t want to divulge too much into what I think i’m stumbled onto just yet because it’s a brand new concept to me and i’ve yet to properly internalize and make use of it. But I do want to say that maybe confidence isn’t something can just be turned on or off (found/lost even). Perhaps it’s something that one must build upon constantly until, well, you “make” it.
But what am I saying? I’m already a superstar [in motion (to music)].
