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
Getting Stuck is Normal But Winners Grow Anyway
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
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…
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,
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
They can deal with it or not, either way not your problem.
