Ever catch yourself waiting to be “perfect” before you start something or allow yourself to live?

I sure have. I’m a perfectionist… or else I used to be. My military background taught me have all my ducks in a row, all my shit in one sock, keep my powder dry, to be “perfect.”

When I just typed that, I realised just how crazy it is. Imagine walking around a city with your shit in one sock ?. Holy crazy bald guy batman. You’d go nuts!!

It’s kinda the same when you decide to lose weight. Or gain muscle. Or make a change and set a goal.

Your brain starts buzzing.
You’re feeling the feels.
You get excited and maybe motivated.
You decide you have a goal.
You want to start.

But then what happens? You lose motivation a bit and make excuses because the time isn’t right.

…I’ll start when _______.
…But it’s the Christmas.
…my family is going through a rough time.
…I’m starting a new job.
…I’m moving and am not sure if it will work.

Guess what? You’re not alone. But…. it’s tough love Wednesday – and I’m calling you out for your bullshit.

There’s never a perfect time. There’s never an opportunity to reach perfection. It doesn’t exist.

Why? Because once we reach our current version of “perfection,” we create a totally new version and a new set of goals or expectations to reach.

But, guess what?

Each day is another chance to discover ourselves and find out more about who we are and what we want.

The way to become more perfect is to more closely understand ourselves.

Self-improvement, self-growth, increasing your emotional intelligence and empathy towards others are just a few things to name a few!
