“Fake it ’til you make it.”
It’s a piece of advice my mom used to dole out whenever I’d lost confidence. You could say I was raised with a fake it ’til you make it mentality.
For better or for worse, I’ve spent my fair share of time doing things I wasn’t quite qualified to do. I’ve bullshitted(?) my way through discussions that I had no business participating in.
And I’ve put myself way way out there (like that one time when I made a book, and another book, and another one) before I even knew What TF I was doing.
I think it all comes down to this one piece of advice.
