I’m convinced of it. Everyone is trying to shoot above their game, to learn as they go on the sly from the ones they have convinced they know what they are doing.

No one really knows what they’re doing – surely the economic crisis is a sign. Cos even those that don’t know anything about money, knew trouble was coming and we ended up there anyway. Will we say the same about the way out? Who knows.

But I know this. It’s okay to fake it. You just gotta know at what point to cut your losses and realise you’re not gonna make it. You just gotta know at what point to just be honest and find someone who isn’t faking it, who can point you in the right direction.

Everybody trades on confidence. Which means that where there is wind, bluster and blow… somebody’s faking it.

What does all this mean? Heck, I don’t know. Just relax, stop taking yourself and everyone else so seriously for a five minute mental health break.

Realise everyone is faking it somewhere along the line. Figure out what you need to keep faking til you get your head around and what you can open the curtains on now. Easy. Nothing to stress about cos everyone’s doing it.

So why don’t you go ahead and stand out from the crowd, whatever that means you have to do?
