You’ve got the wrong idea…

Its not what you think...

I talk to people all the time who think "this is it!" like, everything has been leading up to this one BIG thing and that big thing is THE thing that changes everything.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news here but....nope.

Life doesn't work that way.

Its usually the micromoments, the small decisions, the things that seem like "not a big deal" that end up being the thing.

Maybe you decided to go left instead of right one day and missed a huge accident.

You decided to buy apples at the fresh market instead of whole foods and met the love of your life while buying berries.

You woke up at 2 am and decided to scroll through IG, saw a post of one of my online challenges and got curious. 3 months later, you're a whole new you! (i hear this one all the time)

On the quantum level, the reason why these small decisions - the ones you probably arent paying attention to all that much - are so impactful is because 1. You leaned into intuition and 2. You weren't attached to an outcome. Both of those allow for more ease and more flow.

These micro moments of decision making happen every single day. I like to believe they compound, and work symbiotically to get me to where i am destined to be.

And so it is with you...

Do your part.
Listen to intuition.
Show up for yourself.
Remember, God is always living, breathing and working in the details.

The Bad Pancake Theory…

Have you heard of the bad pancake theory in dating?


Lets apply this to your business...

Basically, when you make pancakes, the first one comes out a little wonky. But as you keep going, they get progressively better!

Usually, this is applied to dating after long term relationships. The first person you date is the bad pancake. But, it gets better after that, "they say."

Well, let's apply this theory to business. The first idea you have, the first course you create, the first video you make, the first live stream you do...all bad pancakes. When I say bad, I simply mean, it's not going to be perfect. You're still learning. And there is nothing wrong with that!

I mean sure, it's "edible" - you will be able to sell it, post it, launch it, etc...but will it be the apex of your life's work? 

No! It shouldn't be.

You know how many youtube videos I made before I felt like my videos were actually...kind of good?

You know how many courses I launched before I finally felt like I created my flagship one?

You know how many talks I gave at conferences before I felt like I could own it on stage?

You know how many times I winged out my eye liner before it looked good on my face? 😂

A lot!

But you know what I never did? I never stewed in the idea that any of it had to be perfect before it made its debut. Who has time for that? I have a life to live, people to help, purpose to step into, obedience to walk in.

I kept going.

Perfectionism will kill momentum. And I am not available for that. Instead, I focused my energy on learning what I needed to learn so that it just got done! I can assess after, revamp later, and redo if necessary.

I am where I am today because I wasn't willing to lose to the idea that perfect the ONLY way to do it. 

So if you're spinning your wheels in neutral because you think the first iteration of anything needs to be absolutely perfect, just remember...even a batch of pancakes never start out ready for their cookbook cover closeup the first time.

Besides, who told you it had to be perfect anyway?

That mindset is going to make this experience more painful than it ever needed to be, my friend.

Choose again.
