Clearly, I’m annoyed.
It’s really something I heard over and over again.
“Wait until I get this, and I will do that”
This mindset is definitely a losing one.
If you’re building your own business, then you really need to get rid of it.
…… below is a part of my response to one of my subscribers …….
It only sounds to me like:
… you’re postponing your goal and commitment… and,
…you’re making more and more conditions to avoid reality
Man, I’m sorry if I’m being harsh today. But I really need you to stop this bad, bad habits.
Why do you need this first before you can do that?
Don’t tell me “You really need this first, otherwise it’s not good enough to move to the next step”
Gosh, I heard that over and over again.
“Not good enough” is killing you and your progress.
I’m telling you. If you stick with the “not good enough” then you will never go anywhere.
Because, when you’re saying that you’re clinging to the “perfect” vision that you have in mind.
You’ve got to stop it.
I mean it is fine (and even good) that you have the perfect end result in mind.
BUT, you must aware that before you get it to be perfect, it will be imperfect first.
And most importantly, perfectness is not real.
It only stays in your imagination.
There are no such things as “perfect”
See, you see that “perfect woman”? I bet she puts on makeup and maybe got some botox.
Why would a perfect woman be doing that? Putting on makeup, doing some botox?
Because “there’s always room for improvement“
See, successful companies like Amazon, Apple, Wallmart, etc, they are supremely successful, but they’re improving every day.
Because they’re no “perfect”
So, don’t get stuck with the concept of perfection that will never come.
You only need to:
…learn as little as you can. Just enough to take your next little step (not even a big major step)
…get things moving with bare minimum effort (most of the time, just start doing it manually. Automate only when it shows it’s making money at all – don’t even think about building the absolute automated system before launching your business)
…make changes to the “far-from-perfect thingy” and improve it over time, but never stop improving
I think this is a kick in his pants that he really needs to have at this moment.
Funny enough, I see my reflection in him.
I have to remind myself the same every now and then too.
And I think most of the people, they do need this reminder.
I hope this is helpful.
