That's the question this post is trying to figure out...
Last week, I was at friends house for a dinner party. It was good to catch up with my closet friend and it was nice to meet some new faces. It was all going well until a few people asked me what I did and how it was going.
My response to how it was going - great, I love working with clients, I am getting a lot of inquires and people are hiring me.
This wasn't far from the truth - the detail that I didn't repeat how last month I felt a little out of funk and how I would have liked to have seen more clients than I did.
For me, I had dealt with that feeling and I did not want to repeat statements that did not serve my feelings. I didn't want to start a pity party, especially because I was feeling secure and happy.
Hearing my response, a close friend, who knew how I felt last month, asked me why I would lie about my practice going well, when clearly I had told her that I could do with more clients.
At that moment I felt very hurt, obviously because it came from a source so close to me but it also forced me to think.
Visualizing and imagining what you desire, feeling now what you would feel then, acting as if you are already living it - are techniques that Deliberate Creators use regularly. It helps us to find a better feeling thought and move closer to the vortex.
These questions come to mind:
> Are Deliberate Creators fake?
> Are we lying when we act as if?
> Is that considered in-sincere?
As for me, I am at ease because I know that I do not seek platforms to paint a picture of what I have, I do not share this information to gain brownie points and I certainly don't have any malicious intent when I act as if.
What are you thoughts about this process? Is there a difference between the techniques that we use and lying?
