How do you embrace the suck when you feel...
Like an imposter.
Full of self doubt.
Like you cannot take one more step.
Go to your Cookie Jar
David Goggins, former Navy Seal and Ultra-Athlete has a mindset tool that he uses for such scenarios to get him through.
He calls it "The Cookie Jar."
What is the Cookie Jar?
Imagine a large jar into which you place all of your past accomplishments—the things you did which you once believed would be too terrifying, too difficult, or too impossible.
But you did them anyway.
You transcended your own self-limiting belief.
You conquered in the face of adversity!
Those are the "cookies" you place in the jar.
When you are confronted by obstacles in life that feel too overwhelming, remember to go into your cookie jar and remove cookies of past accomplishments and draw from your past victories.
They are placed there to remind you that you can do it.
Have you made yourself a cookie jar to call upon when it gets tough?
