We love the guy who stinks on stage.
We root for him until he finds his stride. His weakness earns him our support until he gets good.
And yet some still prefer to “fake it”:
- Blowing up social media about your “wild success” when you’re struggling to pay rent. That’s called ‘lying’.
- Playing the guru when your advice is either untested or unsuccessful. That’s called ‘thievery’.
- Struggling quietly when your problem is quickly solvable by peers. That’s called ‘stupidity’.
If you feel like faking, be like the guy who stinks on stage. It works, and we like him better.
