The Power of Acting “As If”

Athletes, actors and other celebrities have sometimes credited the law of attraction for getting to where they are today. Life coach Judy Siblin-Librach tells us how she is using the power of “as if,” and urges everyone to give it a try.

When our wishes are on a To Do list, our dreams are on the same level as ‘buy lettuce’. We tend to hide behind the To Do’s, and we never get around to doing them.

As host of Finding Your Bliss on Toronto’s Zoomer Radio, my To Do list is long.

Each week I create a one-hour radio show, which means researching authors and guests, writing a script, creating questions, booking interviews, and selecting musical guests. Then there are all of the technical aspects – recording promos, throws, cue cards, reading books and articles, and promoting the show on all of my social media channels. My To Do list seems to go on forever.

I thought the show was complicated before COVID-19. But once the pandemic began, I also had to become the technical producer. I had a choice – wait until the pandemic was over and resume production at the Zoomer Radio studio (easy), or create a makeshift recording studio and produce the show out of my home (hard, but very rewarding). 

I chose the latter. I now produce the show with the help of a team of angels all the way from rural Ontario, to various parts of Toronto. We connect online through four laptops and a modem and then we send the files to Zoomer Radio for packaging and broadcast.

By choosing the home studio route, my job got even more complicated. And of course, my To Do list became never-ending. But all of this helped me to realize that I could help people find their bliss far more effectively by encouraging them to move away from their own To Do lists, and instead, connect with their To Be lists.

What’s the difference?

There’s no question that we need To Do lists when it comes to getting groceries, making dinner, doing the laundry, etc.

But I notice with my life-coaching clients that they tend to put their dreams and wishes on their To Do lists. And those items remain there, sometimes forever.

But why?

When our wishes are on a To Do list, our dreams are on the same level as ‘buy lettuce’.  We tend to hide behind the To Do’s, and we never get around to doing them. 

The To Be list is entirely different. Imagining what you want to be takes you to a place of Blissful Being, in the sphere that you were meant to be in.

And the surefire way to inspire yourself to complete your To Do’s is to connect them with your passion and your purpose in life; your To Be list will tell you what your purpose is.

My purpose is to help others. But for two years I had an item on my To Do list; ‘Write Bliss Minutes’ – short inspirational messages to help people find their bliss. The plan was to record video messages and create an Instagram page called @theblissminute, where I would help people find and follow their bliss.

But that item stayed on my To Do List for two years.

Then my youngest left home, and a friend said, “Judy, you’re going to have a very hard time if you don’t get back into your career because so much of your life has revolved around your children.” 

It was the best advice. I realized that I wanted to become a career woman again (now that my children were in university). So it was time to get back to work!

By writing and shooting Bliss Minutes, I connected my work to who I was being. Suddenly my career started to move forward. Bliss Minutes led to very active Instagram and Facebook accounts, an online magazine, and then a radio show and podcast. And now I’m writing a book on finding your bliss, to be published this fall.

If I had left Bliss Minutes on my To Do List, none of this would have been possible. By putting my dream on my To Be list, I was able to turn that dream into reality.

Ask yourself who you are being right now and who you want to be. Who are you showing up as right now, and who would like to become?

Being is a wonderful state that I have experienced in synagogue, saying Kaddish for 11 months for my beloved late father, and just being there – without my phone, without distractions, without anything on my To Do list, except to connect with my father and just be.

Being is right now. When I am being who I am meant to be, then I can help others move from their To Do lists, to their To Be lists, so they can take one step closer to finding their bliss.

Judy Siblin-Librach is the host of the weekly radio show and podcast Finding Your Bliss, on Zoomer Radio AM 740 FM 96.7. She is the creator of the online magazine Finding Your Bliss, and host of The Bliss Minute, a daily dose of happiness and positivity on Instagram and Facebook accounts @theblissminute.

Judy has been an on-camera host and reporter for numerous TV shows both local and national, including her own show “In the Spotlight” (a showcase for Canada’s performing artists) which won Best Arts Program in North America by the Hometown U.S.A Video Festival. As well, she won a CBC Telefest Award for her documentary called “It Has A Name… Neurofibromatosis.”

She has also written for major newspapers and magazines across Canada.
