I started Butter Dream not because I loved baking, but because I loved the idea of becoming a home-based business owner. When I offered cupcakes to my friends some time 2016, the taste was bland, icing was too sweet, icing was melting, floral designs were not sharp etc. Think of a sloppy cupcake, that was how everything it was. EXCEPT I placed them inside presentable boxes and created handwritten notes to our customer-friends. I guess that made everything looked good. BUT ever since the start, I acknowledged, “I’m not really a natural baker.”
All the more so when the husband started baking our cakes, all our taste feedbacks started becoming good, then better, then great. Then, I never baked any of your orders right after he took over our kitchen operations mid-2017. Yes, I haven’t really baked any of our cakes and cupcakes for almost 2 years now because I said to myself, “I’m not really a natural baker.”
Last week, I committed to break that mindset, enrolled in my own baking university to whip fairly easy recipes every week, and made my first Cheesecake Brownies. I committed to give myself another chance and to re-make what I think about myself: “I’m not really a natural baker, BUT I AM DETERMINED TO LEARN.”
Today, I ask for you to pause, recheck your mindset(and heart condition), and fill in the blank: “I’m not really a natural ______________ , BUT I AM DETERMINED TO LEARN.”
Now, that’s what you call an attitude.
