Do you ever feel stuck? Completely overwhelmed and don't even know where to start to make any kind of changes in your life?
Do you suffer from being a perfectionist or all or nothing kind of person? Is so, you're not alone!!!
I hear these words being uttered all the time. Especially "I'm an all or nothing kind of person, so I can't partly do this thing!!"
To which I respond..."How is that working out for you?" I don't mean it in a rude or cheeky way, but actually a caring way.
Ask yourself that question right now...is what you're doing right now in your life, truly serving you? Perhaps you feel like you're eating well and working out like crazy but you're still not happy with the number on the scale, or how your clothes fit or still feel like you're a square peg trying to fit into a round hole in your life.
That means that what you're doing right now is not working for you...because when you are doing what truly works for you, and BTW this can be tiny small tweaks or bigger things that we tackle one by one. But when you're doing what works for YOU...life is calmer, less stressful, you have more energy, sleep better, have fewer digestive issues and you even smile more frequently!! Honestly, doesn't that sound appealing??
The first step towards real change is to get real and honest with yourself. Sounds simple, but trust me, it's not...so often it's easier, to be honest with others than it is with ourselves! So, I ask you again...Is what you're doing right now working for you? Drop a yes or no in the comments below.
Then I want you to consider this to help you take a first step...don't even look at the end goal right now! We have to get you unstuck first, so I'd like you to think about this...What does Version 1.0 look like? Do you think writers, write a book and it never needs editing? Do you think an actor does a scene and never has to redo it or have it edited? Of course they don't, it's par for the course that they in fact write or act the scene multiple times before we read it or see the finished product.
So, how do we apply that to our lives? We're shooting for progress, not perfection! Which simply means forward motion, no matter what speed, no matter if it's perfect or not (I don't see any perfection police lurking around). Get out of your own way and just start, get the ball rolling. That's it. Be kind to yourself and understand that sometimes we simply haven't learned how to do something yet and that's why we can't apply it. Don't ever feel alone, you're not, I promise you!
