Deciding to Frame Your Year in Success

Deciding to Frame Your Year in Success

One of the most amazing things about memories is that they are malleable.  How many times have you been speaking with a friend and talking about something in the past only to realize that you’ve forgotten a number of the details.

As it turns out, it’s possible to reframe our memories by focusing on the positive outcomes to almost any event.  In this way what seemed like a negative event or series of events can turn into a positive memory.

About four years ago one of my mentors, Walt Sutton, sent me a holiday card in January with the following instructions:  List the top ten things that made the past year so successful for you.  I stopped when I reached 23 different reasons! Since then I’ve created a list every year around this time.

I decided to turn that card into a PDF template. You can download it here:  Celebrating My Success in 2008.
