I loved this the moment I read it … “You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.”
Boy, isn’t that the truth. How often do we put off something because we don’t feel ready enough?
-I’ll start daily prospecting once I get my system down.
-I’m going to wait to start doing my client mailers once I’ve cleaned up my database.
-I’m not going to have anyone over until I replace my carpet.
-I’ll wait to plan that beach trip once I lose 10 pounds.
And on and on and on.
Does any of this sound familiar to you? It does to me.
Here’s what I will tell you … you are enough, just right, just as you are. Are we all a work in progress? Absolutely. Learning, changing, evolving never stops. Are there things in your life, your home, your business, about yourself that you don’t feel prepared enough/ready enough to share? Yep. My list is long.
Yet, life moves past us at lightning speed. Waiting one month to perfect your database before starting your mailer can quickly turn into 2 then 4, then 6. Waiting until you lose weight to go on a trip can take weeks and months to get to where you feel you “need” to be and then suddenly the vacation season is over and you are waiting another year.
-Your clients who receive your mailer will be happy to “see” you. Maybe you don’t hit everyone this month, or send to a few that have moved on, but next month you look a little closer, and then the next and then the next. Each mailing will get better.
-Your daily prospecting will help to develop the system … some of the best systems are those that are created as you go out of real world needs and scenarios.
-Your house guests will be too busy enjoying your company to notice or even care about your carpet.
-The warm sun and sound of the ocean waves will replenish your spirit, not judge you for carrying a little extra here and there.
Do the things. Live your life. Take action. Enjoy as you go. We are all just right, right now.
