THIS is the Killer of Progress!
The Killer of Progress
We all want to be the best at what we do and loved, praised, and honored for it. It can’t be just me afterall!
I love the atta’girls and WOW, That’s Brilliant!’s that comes from doing work that genuinely helps people. I also really hate feeling like I messed up in any way which is why sometimes I work and work and work on getting things just right before just putting it out there already!
I am a recovering fail-ophobe. Are you?
See, failing isn’t the absence of success, it is part of the process of success.
Let me say that again, because for people like me that hate the F word, it’s the most important thing you’ll be reminded of today.
Failing isn’t the absence of success, it is a VITAL part of the process of success.
That doesn’t mean we sit in failure like a soup of ick. It means everytime we pick ourselves back up and move forward, we are ever closer to our goal.
With that, let me add a powerful mantra to your inventory.
“I focus on progress not perfection.”- Mantra
Perfection is the killer of progress and the more we chase it out of fear of failure, the more we guarantee the very failure we were trying to avoid.
Running a fabulous business and a fabulous life doesn’t mean that you never get scrapped up and bruised in the process. It means that from every failure, we learn.
We don’t have to like it. But, like my grandma is fond of saying,
“Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted”.
I will simply add to that, “and experience is the forge of success”
Progress not perfection my friends.
You got this,
