    The success list

    A success list is a simple way to create more fun,
    pleasure and enjoyment in your life.  

    First get a small pocket notebook. Then get into the 
    habit of writing down in this notebook five or more 
    successes that you have each day. A success is 
    anything that makes you feel good about yourself 
    when it happens. These successes can be things 
    you do or things that happen to you. The key is that
    you felt good about yourself when each success 


    A success could be something as simple as getting 
    to work on time despite the traffic. It could be someone 
    smiling at you. A success might be getting positive 
    feedback on something you’ve done. A success could 
    be doing a task you’ve been putting off. A success could 
    be meeting with an interesting person who inspires you. 
    A success might be taking one small action step toward 
    an important goal. 

    A success does not have to be earth shattering; however 
    it does have to be something that makes you feel good 
    about yourself when it happened. 

    When you’ve used a success list for three weeks or more; 
    you will have written down over one hundred successes
    you’ve had in this time. 

    Imagine how good you would feel reading a list like this. 

    Think of a success list as being a bit like a photograph 
    album filled with photos of some of the happiest moments 
    in your life. Every time you look at the photos, those happy 
    moments and feelings come back. 

    Action Exercise: 

    Get yourself a pocket notebook today. Start writing at least 
    five successes you have each day in this notebook. 

    Notice how you feel after doing this for a week or two 

    At Resilient Minds we help our clients to develop high resilience
    so they can perform at high levels on the really important
    things in both their work and personal lives. 

    Have a great week.
