Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded that being perfect is not the main goal of life.
Especially when perfectionism can stop you from having a go, from showing up, and trying new things.
The fear of not being perfect can strangle your ideas, your goals, and dreams.
It can suffocate your creative spirit.
Dim your intuition.
Take the sparkle and joy out of your life and replace it with fear and procrastination.
It’s time to let go of the idea of perfection and just have a go.
Allow yourself to let go and let things get wild and messy.
Enjoy the unfolding process of creation in all areas of your life.
Let everything have its own time, and unfold in its own unique and unpredictable way.
Embrace the process, the joy, the optimism, the space for learning and refining.
Let go of judgement, criticism and second guessing, and replace them with love, curiosity and an open heart.
In this very moment, just take a moment to stop and pause, to take a breath, as you release the need to be perfect.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to do something you know won’t be easy for you.
Better still, try something that you know you will ‘fail’ at, or you won’t be able to do or complete.
Push yourself out of your comfort zone and embrace the expansive feelings of growth and improvement, as you release the constriction of perfection.
Pause, and take a breath. As you embrace the possibilities of expansion.
“I approach life with an open heart and curiosity”
In the meantime, enjoy trying new things!
The fear of not being perfect can have a very real and stifling impact on your life.
When I was younger, much younger I hasten to add… I was so terrified of getting it wrong that I actually remember that I couldn’t even make a phone call to reschedule an appointment I needed to change, I had to ask a friend to do it for me.
I’m not sure how I thought I could get a phone call wrong, but that’s how much it held me back.
Perfectionism had made me afraid to show up and use my voice, there was subconscious fears about getting it wrong, being laughed at, or making a fool of myself.
Now I show up in front of thousands of people, sometimes spluttering over my words, forgetting words, or even using the wrong ones, but I’m no longer afraid of not being perfect.
Of course, I want things to be the best they can be, but I show up and have a go knowing it’s not always going to be perfect and that’s totally okay with me.
I don’t expect myself to be perfect, and I don’t expect others to be either.
For me, it’s more important that people show up with all of their imperfections, than not show up at all.
