Dress for the job you want


Ever heard that old saying, ‘Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have’?

I love this philosophy. You have to be “on the level” of the things you want, in order for them to happen. I’d take it even take it further: Show up for the life you want, not for the life you have.

It goes so much further than dressing. As entrepreneur Jim Fortin says, If you want to get from A to B, you have to be the person at B.

How does that person dress?

How do they act?

What do they eat for lunch?

What do they do every morning?

How often do they call their mum?

You’ve got to act like your ideal self if you want to BE your ideal self. It will transform you, and one day you will wake up and realise you’re no longer acting.

If it’s too hard to figure out how your ideal self would act, pick a person you aspire to be like, and do some method acting. Be that person in every way.
