But it doesn’t help when you’re trying to strive for perfection all of the time, and really procrastinating things in your business.
So here are three reasons why perfectionism is really costing you money right now.
People Are Waiting
People are waiting for your message right now. They are waiting for that book that you want to write. They are waiting for that next blog post. They are waiting for YOUR take.
They really don’t care if it’s perfect because they need to hear that message right now.
Real Role Models Wanted
People, more than ever, really want to hear from real role models. We live in a Reality TV culture and we live in a world where things are very much constructed. A lot of the stuff we see on TV that is “reality” is completely fake. People want REAL reality. So stop thinking you have to be ten pounds lighter before you’re allowed to make money.
Entrepreneurs are crying out to hear from real role models, exactly the way you are right now.
I used to think that I could only be rich in business if I was tall or thinner or better groomed, or I had perfect makeup ALL THE TIME, but that’s not true.
I know that you watch my videos and sometimes I have no makeup on, and you’re totally fine with me being flawed, right? RIGHT?!
People want to see the good AND the bad.
It doesn’t matter what you think, people out there who will so appreciate you being real, honest, flawed and exactly how you are right now.
Talk about your mistakes. One of my most popular blog posts is me talking about my embarrassing nipple situation when I met Oprah. People love to hear how you’ve fucked up and more importantly, what you learned from the situation.
If you only share the good stuff, or wait until it’s all perfectly lined up, then it’s NEVER going to happen.
Simply put – it’s costing you money right now.
Perfection Is Impossible
Being perfect is impossible.
Perfectionism shouldn’t be the goal because it’s impossible. And it’s SO NOT NECESSARY.
Okay, they were crap. Buttt…..
Imagine if I just didn’t put that book out at all… I know that tens of thousands of people have read that book and they tell me that it’s changed their life, but imagine if I had waited until I had the perfect cover … it might still never be out.
I had a funny experience recently when I was doing a live event and I was signing books and someone brought one of my very first book covers to sign and I was just like, “Ohh! Where did you get this from? That is SOOO UGLY”
But she loved it and she said she had highlighted it and made notes and it was really a well-loved copy.
I just felt so grateful that I could overcome that need in me to be perfect all the time and to actually make that book happen, because I know it has impacted a lot of people.
So, what are you putting off in your business right now because you feel like you need to be perfect?
What a-ha’s have you gotten from this video?
What action are you committed to taking even if it is imperfect?
I am happy to be the role model for you in living a very flawed but still very abundant life.
