Perfection Paralysis? Here’s what to do…
Do you know what actually turns great ideas into results?
It’s not the ideas themselves. No matter how brilliant, they aren’t going to do one thing for us or our business…
Until we implement them.
So why don’t we always implement what we know we need to do? What’s the culprit most often to blame for our inaction?
Watch this week’s 4-minute video to find out what’s getting in the way (and what to do about it):
Business owners have been telling me for years, “Sure, Fabienne, I’ll implement that idea when I’ve got everything PERFECT!”
Here are my thoughts about that…
I am 16 years into my own business and I still don’t have it perfect. I still change my mind. In fact one of the BIGGEST changes I’ve ever taken on in my business is coming this fall. It’s big and I’m doing it, even if not everything is completely worked out yet.
I know that you may want to have it all figured out before you go for it, whatever “it” is.
The problem is, the product of your quest for perfection is PARALYSIS.
Like our Shero in this week’s video, strap on your cape and do “it.” Do it messily. Do it imperfectly. Do it on shaky legs and with a knot in your tummy. And then learn from your mistakes and make it better.
You’re not going to have it be perfect. Ever. So get over it and just do the thing. Write the book. Make the call. Send the letter. Hire the support. Work with the mentor. Raise your rates.
This is how successful businesses are made.
I hope this week’s video inspires you to take action on something you’ve been procrastinating this week. Pick one thing. And do it. Today.
So much love,
P.S. If you’re a rockstar at photoshop (which I’m not) feel free to create a pic of you (or ME!) in that shero cape and email it to me. I think we all need a picture of ourselves in that get up. 😉
P.P.S. By the way, you’re awesome. Just want to make sure you know that you’re doing a great job. Keep going. I’m proud of you. xo
