DO GOOD - September 21, 2006

I read a story about actress Ingrid Bergman. She said to her director, Alfred Hitchcock, “In this scene I don’t think I can give you the particular emotion you want.” Hitchcock answered in two words, “Fake it.”

It may seem as if this famous director was advocating insecurity, but he was just asking her to pretend. Hitchcock knew that the way to start feeling a desirable emotion is to act as if you already felt it.

If you act cheerful, you will eventually feel cheerful. If you keep your talk civil and your attitude friendly, with a pleasant face, you will eventually weaken and destroy inner resentments.

Miss Bergman honored Hitchcock by saying, “I have saved many arguments and wasted time in my life by following Mr. Hitchcock’s advice when I didn’t feel polite or peaceful. I learned to fake it.”

If people do what is right, in time they come to like doing it.

--John Ruskin
