Persistence over Perfection
Updated: May 23
Are you a perfectionist? Overachiever? If you can't do something perfectly then what's-the-point-of-doing-it type of thinker? If so, I want to offer you a different perspective. What if you knew that whatever it is you want to accomplish, obstacles will always be in your way? Because of this, whatever it is you want to achieve, or whoever it is you want to become, persistence and consistence will always outplay perfection.
We all have dreams! Some of us act on them and others ignore them. The path to our big dreams is hardly ever a smooth ride. The road is filled unexpected twists and turns, but it's in those moments when we don't give up that make us stronger and closer to achieving them. Unfortunately, it's also in those moments that some of us throw in the towel. When things get hard, some of us automatically choose to believe we can't do something. We can't picture ourselves overcoming these roadblocks so we assume that path must not be the right one. So we stop all together, or stop and start over - on repeat. However the true secret is knowing that obstacles will be in our way no matter what (and I truly believe for a reason, too) so sticking with it, staying the course and refusing to give up is the only way we'll ever get close to achieving them.
Persistence has to work hand in hand with consistency, though. If you've been apart of this space for any amount of time you've heard me say "small steps done consistently create big results over time." Consistency is all about showing up even when we don't feel like it, or being patient when we think something is taking too long.
When we persistently pursue our goals and consistently put in the work, amazing things start to happen. Remember to embrace the challenges that are placed in your way, keep showing up and celebrate your small wins along the way! Every step forward, no matter how small, is progress.
I hope this reminder resonates with you and helps you stay on track. Whether your goals are personal or professional, let's continue to support each other on this exciting journey of persistence and consistency. And remember, I'm just a phone call away if you ever need an extra boost of encouragement!
