Pobody’s Nerfect!

I received two e-mails today and both said in the heading: Perfect!!  As somewhat of a perfectionist, this was music to my ears. You see, I have been accused over the years as being a perfectionist! Something others saw in me but I did not see in myself.

When I became consciously aware of this, I began to see my imperfections as a perfectionist! Yes, there are times when I want things to be just so and this can be a detriment to someone in business for themselves. You see, we have a tendency to  want everything just right before we put it out there for the world to see, especially in this world of social media.

One of my mentors Paul Martineli uses the phrase “ just do it and build your wings on the way down”. I have been doing more of that but it is very hard to let myself do it. The good news! It is actually working for me. It does not hurt to just do it and see what happens!

What are you doing that you are waiting for it to be perfect? What would happen if you just did it and built your wings on the way down? I want to challenge you to try it. You may be surprised at the success you find.

I  believe we have all we need inside of us and sometimes we just need a coach, our own personal cheerleader to come along side of us and encourage us and help us find our own inner genius. I would love to be that person
