Life will make you repeat itself until you learn the lesson. Have you heard of this saying before? Life has a subtle way of throwing hints to us and interesting ways to get us to stop and listen. Earlier this week, I found myself in a familiar situation.
A few summers ago I realized I have a problem with perfectionism. Everything has to be perfect before in order to take action. This kind of thinking had me trapped in procrastination and forever waiting to move forward. Thankfully I have learned to adapt a new mindset and I have learned to be kind and have patience with myself in everything I do. After all, I am human and that's the key point. So I was kind of taken back the other day when I discovered I still needed another mindset adjustment.
Creating Special Compass has been a wonderful journey. It has given me the chance to grow and take on new opportunities I could never imagine. Yet, from time to time it can be overwhelming trying to juggle and manage everything.
I came to the point where I was exhausted and frustrated trying to manage multiple pieces all on my own. My frustration grew into negative thoughts and I had convinced myself that I am not the best person for this job, and it should be someone else’s responsibility. I did not want the pressure anymore.
A couple of days ago I finally took the step towards seeking help and after a few conversations with some experts, I never received the “Hey I will help you” kind of offer I was hoping for. Instead, I got you have done a great job keep going! In that instant it hit me, life taught me a lesson.
Sometimes, we are standing in our own way of success. When we tend to focus on how the size of the challenge or the fact we only have a slingshot instead of a sword to fight Goliath. Do not get distracted by what you lack that you want to give up.
In my mind, I have perceived my work not to be perfect and started developing a mindset full of lack language. I was too focused on what I was not doing, that I had missed what I had accomplished. The journey to success is not easy, but when we let go of the lack language that is holding us back, it makes the adventure more enjoyable. There are no limits to what you can achieve, always remember you are filled with abundance full of potential. Let go of the negative thoughts and move forward.
