A few months ago I took a vision boarding class as a fun activity to do with a friend. I flipped through magazines, ate snacks, and created a poster with pretty pictures. Now it's hanging on the back of my bedroom door so I know where I'm going each day. See below.
The activity was helpful but the best part was something the facilitator said at the end. She asked us to write down our fears. For example:
- What if I fail?
- What if I'm not good enough?
- What if no one likes me?
Then she asked us to flip those statements. For example:
- What if I succeed?
- What if I'm awesome?
- What if everyone loves me?
I think about this often when I catch myself caught up in doubts about failure.
What if I succeed? How will my life be when that happens?
Most of the time we create the future we expect. It starts with a thought or a belief and then we change our behavior accordingly.
Cooking is personal and success is about believing it's important and then putting a plan in action with the right support.
