Direction Vs. Perfection
I have the honor of being a gracious guest of Allison Larson at The Word Genius event hosted by Fagan David.
I am gaining a ton of clarity about the direction of my business and life. I have gained a new confidence in who I am and what I am up to in this world...AND how the heck to explain it!!!
I am playing on a global scale.
We. Are playing on a global scale.
Consider this: No matter what legacy we aim to leave or what scale we are intrested in playing on, we are better together.
Everyone in this world coincides with each other. We all play very different roles. We arrive with very different passions and purposes. The global aspect is the worldwide part that we each play in the ebbs and flows of life.
Think of humanity like a current in the sea. Now imagine the packed streets of New York with it's peditravelers walking about. Half going one way, half going the other. Then back your mind away from the earth like a plane rising from the ground. See all the cars. See all the people. Go higher. Leave the earth on a jet to the stars. Rise rise rise and see all of humanity flowing about.
You're in there. We're in there.
We are one.
We. Are better. Together.
🙌These two hands may not put shoes on the feet of every child in a third world country. I may not be the one to stop world hunger. It may not be me who who cures the next disease.
What these two ears, two eyes, and one mouth and huuuge heart are here to do is unleash the hearts of those whose passion and purpose it is to make that positive impact in the world!
People hire me to go from dreaming to doing. So many of us are unclear, confused, and defeated about what it is we truly want to do from a space of authenticity and full self expression. We toil with other people's expectations of us and our expectations of ourselves.
We think we're supposed to be at 'this stage' at 'this age' of our life. We spend much more time focused on what we're not doing than what we want to be doing. It can lead to a complete loss of focus and alignment with our gifts, talents, skills, and commitments.
Many can hardly even dream about what's possible when we are so hyper focused on perfection. For me, giving up perfectionism created space to make a mess.
It created space to get my hands dirty and figure shit out. Sometimes it felt like learning the hard way...easy way...whatever way it would go was perfect. It was perfect for the time I needed it. This process has grown me in a way that I could not have grown myself.
I have gotten OK with letting go of perfection and just stepping in the direction of my commitments
I go in the direction that my heart strings pull me in.
Giving up 'knowing where I'm going' for 'just going for it' has me being pulled by my passions instead of pushed by my fears.
Straight up, if this post speaks to you, hit me up.
