Stop Second Guessing!
Do you always want to be perfect?
I waste a lot of time trying to achieve perfection.
I have great plans about what I want to do and then I think, what if it doesn’t work. What if someone doesn’t like it? What if I do it this way or that way? Get the picture?
The problem with this crazy process is that nothing gets done and I end up feeling frustrated.
Why am I doing this?
I want to be the best I can be. Part of me also wonders if it’s because I want people to love what I do? But I think it’s actually fear. Will people see me as a failure or being crazy for taking different steps to them and not doing what is considered to be the norm.
But what would happen if I just took the risk and didn’t care about it. Why not take the risk?
Who cares if not everyone or anyone likes it? At the end of the day, at least I know that I am being ‘real’ and not trying to do things to please other people. I am being “me”.
The beauty of just getting on with things is that you become your true authentic self and you enjoy what you do. It shows that you are not trying to be like others. You are just being original.
Life isn’t perfect. If you waste time second guessing the “what ifs”, you will miss out on the beauty of what can be.
So what’s the answer? How do you tackle this problem?
It’s simple, just do it! If you want to do something, just do it. And when you do it, enjoy it. Stop thinking about the problems that could arise or what you can do to avoid them. If you do run into a problem, treat it as a lesson. Simply learn from it. But the main thing is that you have done something to get you to the next step of where you actually want to be. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life thinking I wonder what would have happened if I had just done it?
So the moral of this story is stop second guessing. Do it with a white hot passion and enjoy it.
