Every woman I serve and support has perfectionist tendencies in some way, shape, or form and I‘ve certainly been down this road myself.
But, why do we strive to get it perfect and why are we so afraid to get it wrong?
The answer: we fear being vulnerable.
When we’re vulnerable we feel naked like our flaws are under the spotlight, it feels uncomfortable, we can feel like we’re fraudulent, we worry people won’t like us or trust us.
But, if we don’t allow ourselves to be fully seen for exactly who we are, if we don’t allow ourselves to make mistakes, stumble, fall, make typos (I'm the queen of typos!), we actually aren’t being authentically us.
Take that in...the more you try to be perfect the less authentic you become.
It takes being willing to be authentically you in all of your messiness to create successful self-employment because the more you can deeply connect into who you REALLY are, the more you will connect with your Non-Nine-to-Five purpose, your potential clients and customers and the list goes on.
If you want to pursue your Non-Nine-to-Five purpose in the most authentic way ever please apply for a private Clarity Call with me (my gift to you) so we can see if the High-Level work we do at The Non-Nine-to-Five™ is a match for you.
Seeing you Successfully Self-Employed,
P.S.: This week Regina took a vulnerable leap herself . . .
“Celebrating that I took the leap! I have been participating in a virtual networking group for quite some time and I will be doing a 20-minute talk! I am also excited for my VIP Day with Jen this Friday where I get to work with an expert to support me with my upcoming talk.”
