Have you waited to do something because the timing was not perfect? Or when you get in a certain situation you will do this or that? Have you put off your goals or dreams because you everything was not the way you thought it should?
I have… Yep I have let years go by, dreams have been delayed and goals not met…because I was waiting on perfection. The perfect time, situation, and even the perfect person.
Over thinking and putting things off.
But now I understand that waiting on perfection is just another form of fear for me.
I was afraid of being great. I was afraid of failing. I was afraid of being judge.
Fear = Perfection
Once I came to terms with my focus on perfection on how it feed my fear. I shifted my thinking .
When I found myself begin to over think about something…I had to take action and just do it.
Just Do IT…. Do what brings you happiness.
If I stay true to the things I love and myself …everything will be perfect.
Are you still waiting on perfection??
Here are some other ways I am overcoming the fear of perfection:
- Reward my small victories
- Remove judgement ( yes we judge ourselves)
- Be transparent in everything
- Have an someone to hold me accountable
- Replace the negative with an positive outlook
- Get out of my own head (stop the over thinking and remove the doubt)
“Strive for Progress not Perfection”
Peace & Love
