The class of 10-year-olds have Career Day today: dress up in any way you want for whatever career you want. Every single one of them showed up in costume: from Doctors, Pop Singers and Firefighters to Superheroes, Sports Figures and Wizards. Maybe some of them are dressing up as Experimental Entrepreneurs, Business Advisors or Industrialists. What would you dress up as for Career Day? Who do you want to be when you grow up? And, if you have an idea of what you want to be, what are you doing about it? Are you defining your model profession? Are you finding out what it takes? Are you acting "as if" you already have it? If you had career day today, what would you dress up as?
The "as if" principle teaches us that everything starts with your attitude. If you believe something with all of your core values and soul, then you will live it. A Pro Golfer believes he will hit the ball just right, The Top Saleswoman believes in the product to the point where selling it seems easy, The Surgeon believes in the successful procedure. And you've done it too. There are so many areas in your life where you simply believe it to be true and so it is. And now it's time to apply that to your own personal Career Day.
"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy." – Norman Vincent Peale
