“How To Be An Imperfectionist”, an article worth reading…
“It’s worth it to get scratched in the face if you reach the treasure chest. You can’t reach your proverbial treasure chest without having a problem on the way there. The world has too many variables that can mess you up. You are imperfect, and will create your own problems too.
Imperfection isn’t glorious and I’m not glorifying it—it’s just the way forward. There isn’t another way, and when you refuse to believe it, you’ll be the person who turns away from opportunity, looking for an alternate trail that has no thorns.”
Shared a great post on social media during the week and thought it important to share with the entrepreneurial mothers community as well… so here it is:
YOU HAVE TO DO THE HARD THINGS…
and there’s a list of them!
I’m pretty confident in saying that I have agonised over a number of these, if not all, through my working life and I suspect you have to.
Regardless, find a way and do what you need to do…
The things that no one else is doing. The things that scare you. The things that make you wonder how much longer you can hold on.
Those are the things that define you. Those are the things that make the difference between living a life of mediocrity or outrageous success.
The hard things are the easiest things to avoid. To excuse away. To pretend like they don’t apply to you.
The simple truth about how ordinary people accomplish outrageous feats of success is that they do the hard things that smarter, wealthier, more qualified people don’t have the courage — or desperation — to do.
Do the hard things. You might be surprised at how amazing you really are.
