Why Perfectionists Make Bad Entrepreneurs

I'm sure some "Karen" is gonna be triggered by this... But it still needs to be said.

I've been doing this work for years. And perfectionism is one of the biggest roadblocks to success when it comes to entrepreneurship.

They want it all to be perfect before thy launch anything. And since... 

💥 Newsflash 💥...

It's never going to be perfect they just never launch.

They don't launch a business.
They don't launch a course.
They don't launch a workshop.
They don't launch a book.
They don't launch themselves.

Oh... But people love to theoretically make plans. I mean, give them a piece of paper and a they will go to town writing it all out.

When I give people workbooks to help them plan, they are all over it!

When I say it's go time... Completely different story.

I watch people sit on genius all. The. Time.

>>> Waiting for the right time.
>>> Waiting for the right equipment.
>>> Waiting for the right # on the scale.
>>> Waiting for the right $ amount in their bank account.

I can go on and on. I've heard it all at this point.

The right time is now. Cuz now is all you have.

And the power to decide is always yours!

Meanwhile, this video is available on demand, on my Facebook page, so head on over!

Don’t Be A Bad Steward of A Good Opportunity

I just read the most mind-blowing statistic!!!

Americans spend over $72 Billion dollars on lottery tickets per year.

Wanna know how much they spend on books? Less than half that!

If anything I think it shows how many people are bored, tired, stuck and looking for a quick fix to get them out of their current situation.

It's literally 2020 - I can't think of a better time to rewrite your story! Now is the time! Opportunity has come!

Don't be the person who sits around waiting for a miracle to happen.

The miracle is YOU!

You're a living, breathing, real life person with more to offer this world than you even know - but you have to show up!

Stop waiting for the perfect time. The perfect time is today.

Stop waiting for clarity. Clarity comes from engagement. You won't get clear until you start moving.

Stop waiting for lightning bolts in the sky to do the thing you know in your heart you were always meant to do.

You have been given so much! Brilliance oozes from your veins and you just hide it. Your gifts are meant to be shared.

Don't be a bad steward of them.

Stop playing small.
Stop hiding from the light.
Stop self-sabotaging.

How To Handle Criticism

TRUTH: There will be people who judge you because you're doing the thing they are too scared to do.

Who else has had to face judgments & harsh critique for the way you live your life? 

If you have - it means you're doing something right. And you're in good company.

But let's break this down - people who judge/criticize do so to justify their own feelings of inadequacy, insecurities, shortcomings, etc. I mean that's just psych 101. Life is a mirror. Always.

Here's how to deal.⠀

1. Be secure in your identity and who God has called you to be. 

This is mission critical, and really the biggest thing. People will always have an opinion. God's matters the most. If you can stand with integrity and say that you are truly operating in alignment with God's calling. Then, who cares... Discussion is over. The problem is, most people aren't here yet. It's ok. I know you're working on it.

2. Have a support system - you're going to need it! 

And here's something to consider: the higher the calling, the more high level that support needs to be. I'm not talking about it just being your mom and your best friend, people! Get a real coach/mentor. Someone you do life with regularly.

3. How I personally handle it. 

I get it. There was a time when it would hurt my feelings too. But then I realized, Most people out here being Judgy McJudgerson have awful lives 🤦🏾‍♀️.

  • Lives I would never wanna live. 
  • Lives I would never aspire to emulate. 
  • Lives that look drastically different than mine - and thank God for it!

They are the worst people to take advice from! 

But I do need to be checked! I'm certainly not above reproach. And this goes back to the support. High-level, regular, #accountability#coaching#mentorship is non-negotiable!

A Little Message From God

Pssst... Just in case you didn't know, He knows!⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That gift, that talent, that dream - God knew all about it. As a matter of fact, He gave it to you.

He is not surprised by your desire to do things differently.

He is not shocked by the fact that you're good at what you're good at.

He is not worried about how it's all gonna happen.

He has known YOU all along! 

He is, however, concerned about why you're trying to hide it, why you're not trusting Him with it and why you keep pretending like He it didn't come from him to begin with.

God will do some pretty amazing things with someone who is willing to enter into the vision with reckless abandon and ruthless trust.

The doubt, the fear, the let's wait and see... Well that's just prolonging your process. Let it go! It's not helping you.

When you're willing to trust - He gives us the opportunity to be blessed, but also to be a blessing! And at the end of the day, that's what it's all about!

You, claiming your contribution and blessing others with the blessing you've been given. What a wonderful thing!

Don't fight it. Don't run from it. Face it. Lean into it. Dream it. Do it!!!!

Its always been the thing you were meant to do.⠀

Sending you tons of love.⠀

Signs of Self-sabotage

Quick litmus test. Rate yourself 1-7 with 1 being, nope never have that problems to 7 being Omg! That's me all day everyday!

✋🏽 You are a chronic overthinker - spend too much time chasing the cows in your mind, not enough time building fences.
✋🏽 You are a perfectionist - you refuse to show up 100% until everything is perfect, and since it never is, you never do.
✋🏽 You don't do things you know you know you should because you always need something else to happen first (example- you need to start a YouTube channel but won't make videos until you lose weight)
✋🏽 Negative Nancy is like your middle name. Your default setting is always glass half empty, I'm gonna fail, this won't work, etc
✋🏽 You normalize patterns and paradigms that don't really serve you long term - example: money and success only come from hard work. So you overwork, burn the candle at both ends until you're too tired to keep going.
✋🏽 A lot of your stress is self induced because you don't have boundaries and love playing the martyr.
✋🏽 You judge other people for having the things you want! (fame, money, followers, success, love, etc) and this is worth the weight of this entire post. Cuz most people live right here!

Add up your numbers.

What did you get?

👋🏽 Raise your hand if you scored if you scored above a 20.

If that's you - you may want to take a look at some things.

I'd suggest working specifically on anything you got a 4 or above.

It's time to release that crap! Self-saboteurs can stay in this decade. You won't need it where we are going in 2020 😉
