Richard what you say here is very true. It is well known in
magic for example that you have to fictionalize yourself
see yourself as the way you want to be; together with
assuming a suitable magical name before you can become
such. This is not fraud but rather a necessary psychological
technique. Critics call this self-deception. Practitioners
call it self-imaging or self-visualization.
