We are conditioned to define success based on the outcomes of our actions - it works or it doesn’t, we’re successful or we fail.
But what if we were to define THE ACTION ITSELF as the success ? That way, the result (and the pressure to achieve it) would be a lot less scary since we’ve already been successful, and if the result is not what we hoped, the follow-up actions bring the opportunity for even more successes.
It might work, and it might not - but the current definition isn’t working too well for us is it….?
