Throw your mind to the state you will to attain, and you will attain. For if you see it and believe it, you will achieve it. Begin to call those things that be not as though they were. The future should be regarded in the past, as though it already, has occurred. Your outside circumstance may currently not reflect your inside vision.

Fake it till you make it.
