Be a rockstar

Wisdom #5 The Rockstar
During the past few weeks, several things led me to the realisation of something: tons of people "fake it to make it", and by this I mean that there are many, many lies out there that we don't even notice. You might not entirely believe someone saying that his life is perfect, but with little lies here and there, people actually manage to gain face and be more successful in life, and here I thought that the phrase "fake it 'til you make it" only referred to fake confidence until, eventually, you no longer are faking that...

I wouldn't ever implement that to my lifestyle; I don't like lies, I don't like showing off my victories (or lack of them), but the one thing that remains as a lesson is that if I act like a rockstar, people start treating me like one, I already tested it out. This is a simile, since I'm not a rockstar haha, the thing that works for me is believing that I'm worth tons more than I give myself credit for. So, next time someone asks you to do something in exchange for something else, be a rockstar, be expensive, give yourself the credit that you deserve (even if you feel like it's less than what it actually is).

// Durante semanas anteriores, muchas cosas me llevaron a darme cuenta de algo: muchísima gente finge para conseguir cosas, y con esto me refiero a que hay muchas mentiras allá afuera que ni notamos. Quizá no le crean completamente a alguien diciendo que su vida es perfecta, pero con pequeñas mentiras por aquí y por allá, la gente en serio logra ganar poder y ser más exitosos en la vida, y es aquí cuando yo subestimé la frase "fake it 'til you make it" pensando que sólo se refería a fingir confianza en ti mismo hasta que, eventualmente, te la creyeras...

Yo jamás implementaría eso a mi estilo de via; no me gustan las mentiras, no me gusta la gente presumida ni presumir mis victorias (o falta de ellas), pero la lección que se queda conmigo es que si actúo como rockstar, la gente me empieza a tratar como tal, ya lo comprobé. Esto es un símil, ya que no soy un rockstar jaja, la cosa que funciona para mí es creer que valgo mucho más de lo que me doy crédito. Así que la siguiente vez que alguien les pida algo a cambio de otra cosa, sean rockstars, váyanse caros, dense el crédito que se merecen (aún cuando sientan que es menos de lo que realmente es).
Love always,
Henry.
