What happens when I say the words perfect and perfection? For me, my body tenses because I know being perfect is unobtainable. If perfection is unobtainable, why do we strive for it? Why expect that ourselves, things, situations, and our businesses have to be perfect? What do we get out of it?
Recently, during a coaching session a client had a AHA moment that they needed to be present and stop worrying about everything in their life being perfect. Present over perfect! Holy power shift! If you took all the energy that goes into perfection and channeled it into just being present, how would your life change?
Think about the impact this would have on you, your business and your family. Try to be present in every moment you can for an hour, a day, a week, a month...what changes, what shifts?
Who is with me to make 2018 the year of being present?! Comment below if you're in!
Happy New Year!
