The Power of “Acting As If”

      No Comments on The Power of “Acting As If”

Back in the mid 1950’s an outrageously flamboyant pianist had dreams of playing to an audience in California’s prestigious Hollywood Bowl. The problem? He was entirely unknown.

But he had a burning passion for his dream. So this strangely flamboyant pianist saved enough money to rent the Hollywood Bowl on an off night.

That night he showed up wearing a tuxedo, placed a huge crystal vase of long-stemmed red roses on the grand piano, and played a glorious full two-hour concert. Except that there was no audience, he fully lived his dream.

Liberace continued to build that dream. Four years later he performed at the Hollywood Bowl before a wildly enthusiastic standing-room-only crowd.

How to Duplicate Liberace’s Success

Basically only two steps are required to duplicate Liberace’s success:

1. Hold a clear image of your dream in your mind, then,

2. Act as if it is already true.

This is a powerful personal transformation tool. Whether you want to become more out-going, quit smoking, achieve a business goal, or create a fulfilling relationship – the process is the same. Just picture it in your mind, then act as if you have already achieved your desired goal.

Expect some surprising results!

Why This Produces Results

Acting as if you are already successful builds the expectation you will BE successful. This expectation then strengthens into a solid core belief that will guide your external behavior in appropriate ways.  And since others respond to our actions, act successful, and you will be seen as successful. And that will even further strengthen your belief!

There are three interesting brain mechanisms behind this power of acting as if: First, your powerful subconscious mind does NOT logically question what you present to it! That portion of your mind always accepts your acting as the literal truth.

Second, each time you act as if you are courageous in the face of fear, for example, your physical brain responds by building powerful and complex neural networks to support that acting. Third, these neural networks will build stronger and stronger connections.

As these networks increase, your acting as if gains strength as an actual belief.

The Next Step

Liberace’s success began as a dream. Do YOU have a dream of doing something greater in your life? If you have the thought, it CAN become a reality! We are all actors anyway, so why not play the role you dream of being. I have created an online training program that can help you get your life on track and really moving forward.
