I took advantage of a wonderful and unexpected opportunity this past Sunday. I attended a Vision Binder Playdate workshop by Molly Burke, Queen of Confidence.
The theme was "Success," and we all worked on maps to show what success was like for us in various parts of our lives (health, relationships, etc). We then worked on collages that showed images that related to our concepts of success. We used lots of colors, magazine ads, words -- whatever seemed right. The idea was to appeal to the childlike subconscious that resides in all of us.
There was a great deal of synergy in the room once we broke our silence. Everyone had been diligently working away on their map when Molly said "It's okay to talk about it." That's when we started sharing our dreams -- and discovered that people in the room with us had sources and ideas that would help on our dreams! It was splendid.
I am afraid that Molly will, at some point, begin to think I've turned into a sycophant. Instead, I feel more like an evangelist. I just can't say enough about her work. The blog on her website is chock full of great ideas for making your life better, and that's just out there for anyone to read and use.
Me? I can't wait to take another class. I'm planning for Molly's course on maximizing Facebook fan pages.
By the bye, here are the websites for the other two people who were in the class with me. Check out their wonderful work:
