Life Doesn't Demand Perfection. It Simply Requires That We Show Up
"Let today be the day you give up who you've been,
for what you can become."
- Hal Elroy
Life doesn't demand perfection. It simply requires that we show up.
No matter how much experience we have, we all will feel doubt, nervous and anxious when we are creating new things and when we share ourselves in front of others.
When you are feeling nervous, anxious or afraid, I want you to realize that it doesn't mean that you are not good enough to do what you are about to do.
Quite the opposite. It usually means that you are doing exactly what you should be doing.
Never forget that we are all, work in progress.
We are always growing, expanding and improving.
Courageous patience is the willingness and the ability to get out of your comfort zone and to stay the course in the face of uncertainty, doubt and fear. And to be able to remain on the path after experiencing criticism from others.
Make a habit of preparing yourself in advance for the inevitable disappointments, obstacles and setbacks that you will experience on your way to your goal.
Never be surprised when they occur. Because they will.
Instead resolve in advance that you will bounce back quickly, get back on track, rather than break and remain in pieces.
You have to continually encourage, inspire and motivate yourself.
Take excellent care of yourself, both physically, mentally and spiritually.
Not only will you be healthier, but you will be more productive.
You will also be ready when great ideas and opportunities come your way, so that you can be ready to take advantage of these ideas and also the success.
You must keep on moving. Momentum is everything.
The less you move, the less you are able to move. Take daily action steps towards your goal, because action leads to more action.
There will be seasons of uncertainty, and that is absolutely normal.
These seasons of uncertainty are a natural part of life. If you are experiencing a season of uncertainty right now, remember this, these seasons don't last forever.
This too shall pass.
"The biggest adventure you can take
is to live the life of your dreams."
- Oprah Winfrey
