Yesterday's post about fortune cookies got me thinking about the potential to use fortune cookies as a catalyst for exploration and discovery.
A couple years ago I posted about using tarot cards as a career exploration tool. The idea was not that the cards could foresee the future, rather it was that they would give your mind something to bounce off and look for connections.
You could do the same thing with fortune cookies. Rather than opening a fortune cookie and saying, "OK, what does my future have in store for me," you could open it and say, "OK, what could this mean? How could this apply to my journey? What is this pointing to that I'm ignoring? What does this symbolize? What steps do I need to take to make this happen?"
In my one-on-one work with people helping them find the path to passion (and truthfully, in my own journey as well), it never ceases to amaze me how much knowledge and insights we already have in our own heads and hearts. It's just sitting there, waiting for us to put two and two together and make the connection.
Fortune cookie coaching can be a fun way to spark those insights and make those connections.
