There is only Perfectionist Block

Perfectionist Block

– Jessica Brody

Perfection blocks us from pretty much anything we do in life,

I remember when I thought about starting this blog and I said to myself I’ll wait until I am a successful businessman till I start writing (Lol) because then it will be perfect

That would have been many years of writing not done

I always hear people say they’ll wait until they lose weight before they go to the gym < like what?

There is no such thing as writers block or gym block or anything block the only thing that is blocking us is that we want everything to be perfect

And nothing is
So nothing is done

Allow yourself to be bad

Winners Grow Anyway

Getting Stuck is Normal But Winners Grow Anyway

Ramit Sethi

We all get stuck

Some of us choose to stay stuck

And I say choose because getting stuck is a choice

Its excuses over action

Rather than looking for a way around

When you decide you dont want to be stuck rather than just saying you dont want to be stuck then you can grow

And that problem becomes a possibility

Nothing Days

Nothing Days

We think of the days when we have that big exam, or wedding days or something really important as the days that define us

But the days that define us are the nothing days, when we dont have a lot on,

What we do in those days they are what define and make us

Not the 2 weeks before a holiday but the 300 days of nothing when you train those days

When you read and study not for the exam bit just for you

When you practice your craft for the sake of practice

Or when you stay in bed when you literally do nothing

Everything we do defines us…

Force The World To Deal With You

You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you.

James Baldwin

Everyone has a perception of who you are or who they want you to be,

Your friends,partners,parents,employer/ees.

They may tell you that you can’t do something, that you shouldn’t do something, that you’re not right for this or that

Because their version of you, you can’t.

And battling with other peoples perceptions can be draining.

But just because they don’t agree with what you are or want to do because it doesn’t fit their idea of you

Doesn’t mean you should not do it,

After all their perception of you is their problem.

Who you are

Be it.

They can deal with it or not, either way not your problem.
