If we were to see a mum shouting at her daughter, saying how crap her drawing is, how bad her singing is, that she shouldn’t try do this or that because she’s not good enough, we would be horrified.
Weirdly enough, that’s what we do with ourselves every day.
We don’t dare putting our Thing out there because it’s not “good enough”, our voice is not good enough to be on a podcast, we are not pretty/smart/slim/young/old enough to make a video, do a keynote, launch that business.
We feel guilty of not doing that to-do list, we feel guilty of feeling overwhelmed, not doing enough for our family, our business.
As it’s been said by Danielle Laporte
Don’t let perfection become procrastination.
or as said during the Right brain video summit,
Done is better than perfect.
Aiming high is good as long as it doesn’t prevent you from doing things or get you disappointed with yourself.
Accept that you are ok where you are, you’re on a journey, give yourself some love, see the child in a learning and growing process in yourself.
Nurture that child and give yourself encouragement for those little bits you are doing great already and be gentle for what’s to be done.
Accept the bad days, the time flying quick, the mistakes. it’s a process, it’s not a deep flaw of yours. Mistakes don’t define who you are.
I know loving one-self is tough sometimes, but at least try to see yourself with a gentle smile and curiosity : “what is that person about to achieve ? I can’t wait to see that”. Because nothing happens if you keep breaking your momentum with harsh judgments.
