Don’t wait to create the business you want until you’re perfect.
Don’t wait until you’re “ready.”
Don’t wait until you’ve lost the weight.
Got the coach.
Quit the job.
Got the perfect Instagramable apartment.
The Piece of paper.
It’s a trap that all of us fall into at some point, especially if you’re self-critical or/and come from a dysfunctional background like myself.
I’ve waited so long for so many things to “fall into place” before I was ready to jump in fully into my business. And even though some things did, most didn’t, and even new circumstances came into place that I now had to hit with the perfection stick.
But the most contradictory thing about striving for perfection, is that it completely keeps you away from taking meaningful action and progress. It locks you in analysis paralysis and makes you second guess everything you do, even if there is no logical reason to.
It literally keeps you from achieving the goals and big dreams that you said you wanted.
It stops you from posting the video, the blog, the insta story, asking for help, changing your mind, altering plans and anything else that will actually HELP you get closer to your business desires.
And instead of just kicking off the brakes and allowing yourself to just course correct in the moment, you stay behind the start line pondering when it’s the right time for you to go. All the while, you watch everyone else hit it big with their businesses. Seeing people post their results, the money they are making and the impact they’re creating.
And here’s the thing.
It’s not that they are better than you, know more than you or have something that you don’t have.
They didn’t wait for the perfect moment. They just decided to start and do what they needed to do to make their dreams come true.
I decided, maybe two days ago, that I’m going to start posting content. The content that I love to make, which is mostly blogs, regardless of the state of my website or Instagram.
I just felt in my soul that the time was now, not later, to kick shit into high gear. It’s time to be the business owner and leader I want to be, and speak with authority the things I want to teach about.
My soul mate tribe will get it. They will know the vibe. I just have to put myself out there again and remember that I’ll get better over time. Perfection isn’t required.
Today, while I was blissing out on my favorite trail, I decided to take some selfies that I can post on Instagram. Truth be told, for the longest time, I really didn’t like putting my pictures out online. I also didn’t want to look self-serving taking pictures of myself in public (even though it’s the most normal thing in the world now). And I would prefer that I would have ideal lighting, a suitable outfit and neat hair… But you know what?
It doesn’t fucking matter because the business leader I want to be and the wisdom I want to sure is far more important.
If people don’t like it that my hair is frizzy and flying all over the place or don’t feel attracted to dive deeper into my content because I don’t look like a professional, then that’s their struggle.
I have shit to do. I have content to make. I have a business to run now. I don’t have the time or energy anymore to consider what people think of me anymore.
I’m not perfect and that’s okay. I’m still going to be wildly successful… Because perfection isn’t required to be successful.
So will you if you just pull the damn trigger, get started today and don’t give up on yourself.
Your time is now.
