  • I used to do this all the time when I was in the midst of a major depression. When I went to work I had to "fake it until I made it" in order to get through the day. I have come out the other side now. Faking it until you make it really does work! I am a testament to the statement! - by NOTGIVINGUP49

  • Definitely! When I was in Warrior Leader's Course while on active duty in the Army, our Small Group Leader said to fake motivation even if we don't feel it, and eventually we really WILL be motivated. Can't tell you how many times I did this, and it works! - by TOPFLIGHTSPARK
