Can you, for even just a moment, wholeheartedly accept where you are right now, chef? Maybe you’ve hit a low, nothing’s working out, maybe someone said no. But can you acknowledge it without any judgements about how terrible the situation is, how fearful you are about the future or how badly you failed?
Because that little moment of clarity that accompanies the acceptance is when you can begin to turn things around. You realise that the things you used to do aren’t working. You recognise you need help. You take the decision to overcome your challenge.
When we accept what’s on our plate, we embrace the growth that we’re meant to gain from a negative experience. It might not seem like it, but it’s a powerful place to be in, chef.
