“In order to be able to do something well, we must first be willing to do it badly.”
It sounded so wrong. And at the same time I knew she was right.
I knew I had to be braver. I had to take a risk and show up the way I was, right then and there, with all the skills, knowledge, passion, and confidence gaps that were staring me in the face.
And as I took those steps, the more I dared in the face of my fears, the easier it became. The more I allow myself to be bad, the more I produce, the less pressure I feel, and the better I’m becoming.
Allowing ourselves to be bad doesn’t mean we’ll actually BE bad. But it’s essential that we let it, should it happen. And see it as an absolutely necessary step in our journey of growth and success.
Because it is. Without those imperfect steps I wouldn’t take the next steps, and wouldn’t be able to do what I love to do so much - coach people, and help them overcome their own limiting beliefs, transcend their own inner perfectionists and inner critics, and take action that is deeply meaningful for the direction they want to take their lives in.
Life requires of all of us that we dare to risk being bad. So that we even stand a chance of being really good. At pretty much anything.
So if you’ve noticed that nagging voice within that tells you you’re not good enough if you’re not doing things ‘just right’, and that you can’t get that big change off the ground before you’re sure that it’ll turn out great... know that life doesn’t come with a user’s manual nor a guarantee.
We simply need to take a chance on ourselves, a lot of the time.
