Fake It Till You Make It

I spend a lot of electrons writing about the importance of what we think. But there's an old saying that "Action precedes attitude." What we do often shapes what we think.

Tell a kid to stop littering. And tell him, And tell him. And...

Or, take him on a roadside clean-up activity. He'll probably stop littering.

Want him to become generous? Have him give. Want him to be selfless? Have him volunteer.

Now, imagine that kid is you. What attitudes do you want to develop? And what actions can you do to help shape them?

Decide what you kind of person you want to be, and do what it takes to make you that person.

You'll be happier.
