Oh how us perfectionists need to remind ourselves of this on a daily basis! So many times I would procrastinate on an important project because my expectations were so high that I would rather not do it than do it and be disappointed in myself.

We have to cut ourselves some slack and allow ourselves to be beginners.

We don’t need to take things so seriously and we can set the bar a little lower but still achieve great things. In fact, I think that aiming too high sometimes stops us from achieving greatness because it keeps us from taking action and growing.

Think about an area in your life where you may be holding yourself back because you think you won’t be “perfect” enough.

Aim for progress over perfection

And most importantly, actually get started on what’s calling you. Wishing you a healthy + happy day!
