The pursuit of perfection is that place in your head that has you rewriting a sentence 5 different times just to make a simple point. It is putting the final details on a project and feeling like it needs something else.
The pursuit of perfection will have you looking at yourself, wondering if you couldn’t use just a little color here and tuck there.
It is our innate need to be seen as someone who has it all together, someone people admire. In business, it is our desire to be seen as an expert in our field. You want to be the premiere company to provide your service or product. When everyone else thinks you are doing an awesome job and you can only think of things you can improve on then you have reached a point to upgrade your thinking. Level Up. Stop beating yourself up and realize that although it seems like you are your own worst enemy, you don’t have to be.
It is ok not to be perfect! Yes, life goes on and your business will not tank. YOU are what makes everything around you unique. No one else was meant to be in this spot, at this point… but you. Stop thinking that you need to improve on something or someone when all you need is the belief that you can succeed and the determination to get it done.
Think about all the ideas you have had at this point. All the interactions it took to get you here. You were designed to soar in a way that is meant for you. There is a big difference between bettering yourself and looking to obtain perfection based on what others may want. Don’t worry about how anyone else perceives you or your work. Focus on what makes you happy. Once you get in the groove of believing in your own work you will find that everything comes a little smoother and with less stress. You will realize that the only opinion that truly matters is yours. Battling your own inner insecurities one by one will cause the feelings of inadequacy to slowly melt away. These thoughts will seem like a thing of the past.
The same should apply to your personal life. It is OK not to be superwoman or superman sometimes. Don’t feel bad saying “NO, I just don’t have the time”. You will thank me later.
In reality YOU are perfect! You were created PERFECTLY for a PERFECT life just for YOU! So what are you waiting for? Be a wonderful, perfect, one of a kind you!
