Fake it Until you Make it!

(Reader Discretion is advised: Some of the arguments discussed here may not convince your sub-conscience)

Faking has becoming so common in today's modern society, that, you can't live without it! It's the new mantra of success. If you don't know what you are, what you want, what you know, or what you don't know; just fake it -as if you know/don't know something, and you are through the process. 
I have heard this argument for God forbid zombillion times (I discovered this term right now!); that, if you fake you can't make for too long. And one day or other you are bound to see your true face. But it that true? 

According to a recent research done at Harvard, "In addition to causing the desired hormonal shift, the power poses (faking) led to increased feelings of power and a greater tolerance for risk."

And life is so short that, you can easily scape the dirt even after playing many fake shots and fouling other in the process. 

But the real question is for how long? 

Answer from gut: 'Till eternity!' 

But, you won't last that long. And the day will come, when you will ask yourself; what am I doing? When was the last time, I was me? And then you won't have a clue on how long you have not been yourself. The key is 'forgetting what you are', because its that fake-self, not you!
