The Fake it to Make it IQ Matrix explores how to develop the self-confidence you need to achieve your goals and overcome your fears. The process involves acting AS IF you already are the person you desire to be. By acting AS IF you’re already this person, you effectively transform how you think, behave, and talk to yourself within a particular social setting or situation. This, subsequently, changes the decisions you make and the actions you take. And as your attitude shifts, your results improve, and your life takes a dramatic turn for the better.
This map walks you through what it means to act as if you’re already confident, successful, courageous, calm, etc. It then breaks down a four-step process you can use to begin “faking it” with purpose.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Fake It to Make It mind map.
- Act as if: The first branch of this map explores what it means to “act as if” you’re already successful, confident, courageous, loving, calm, resilient, or however else you might want to feel at any given moment. This branch also outlines the benefits of acting a certain way and the impact this has on your self-confidence and on your ability to accomplish your goals.
- How to Fake It: The next two branches of this map break down a four-step process you can use to begin “faking it” with purpose. This process walks you through what you must do and how you must think to “act as if” you’re feeling a certain way. Now, of course, “acting as if” you’re feeling a specific way isn’t a substitute for the real feeling. However, as you FAKE IT, you begin to think differently. And as you begin to think differently, you act differently. And when you act differently, your whole world changes. This process involves identifying your desired outcome and the person you are choosing to become. You then need to shift your perspective of your predicament, transform your physiology, and take decisive action. At each step, you are presented with a series of self-reflection questions that will help you to work through this process successfully.
- Further Suggestions: The final branch of this map presents you with additional suggestions and questions that you might want to take into consideration as you begin adopting the “fake it to make it” mentality.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for developing your confidence and taking decisive action towards your desired goals. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively develop the self-confidence you need, to become the person you must be to achieve the goals you desire to attract into your life.
