This, I think, is good advice, no matter what you want to do with your life. Though, admittedly, the following was spoken with regards to selling fish.
“Originally we wondered, �How are we going to become world famous? We don�t have any money to advertise!� Jim told us we didn�t have to know how to become world famous. He told us that when you�re generating a powerful vision, the future just unfolds. He told us not to believe in it. We just had to be it. He pointed out that there�s a big difference between a belief about something and the actual thing itself. Muhammad Ali didn�t say, �I believe I am the greatest.� He said, �I am the greatest.� He was declaring himself. It�s the difference between believing in the idea of being great, versus being your commitment to being great right now. Jim said, �Your commitment to being world famous will naturally give you what to do.� So, as individuals, each of us choose to aligned ourselves with the commitment and declared, �I Am World Famous Pike Place Fish.� Jim was right. Once we declared our commitment, things really started happening.
People want to copy us – to do what we�re doing. We keep telling them, �Your success isn�t in doing what we do; it�s in discovering your own way. Don�t do what we do – we made it all up�do what inspires you�make it up! You just have to be (yourself�what inspires you). And it means commit yourself to who you say you are: act like it, think like it, look like it, feel like it, speak it�be it! You will create your own way by just being yourself, doing what inspires you. The secret to our secret lies in our commitment to being who we say we are.
JUST BE IT. Your challenge is to �just be� who you want to be�for free�just because you said so.”
