In cooking there is a formula for the perfect moment to take the pot off the stove or remove the pan from the oven.
We follow instructions, recipes that make the end result pretty predictable.
But what about life? Where is our instruction manual that promises perfect results every time?
If we are okay with trial and error, we gradually learn, but often our internal Bully voice demanding perfection, makes us afraid to experiment.
DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun
"STRIKE WHEN THE IRON IS HOT…"
How do we know the right moment? The right degree of hot?
People who iron clothes learn…
What is their secret?
They allow themselves to make mistakes and forgive themselves…They understand that getting it wrong - waiting too long or acting too soon - is an acceptable part of their learning curve!
TO TRANSLATE THIS TO EVERYDAY LIFE, TRY SENDING YOUR INTERNAL BULLY AWAY!
Recognize it: "Wow that tight feeling in my gut is my Bully voice berating me."
"Ugh! See what you did!"
"Why didn't you act sooner?"
"Why didn't you wait longer?"
Reason with it: "Listen I have to make some mistakes in order to learn. I am not a robot and I can't always control the outcome!"
Banish it: Okay, that's enough! Shut it!"
AND FINALLY, TAKE A MOMENT TO BREATHE DEEPLY AND LET YOURSELF LEARN FROM TRIAL… AND ERROR.
A LITTLE BURNT TOAST NEVER HURT ANYONE, RIGHT?
