I am working on a program I am delivering early next month and two (related) questions have come up when I have been test driving the content. “What if a person is a perfectionist? What’s the first step for that person if he is worried about being wrong?”
Great questions – and I must admit things that I have asked myself.
Here is something that can help tremendously: Begin to shift your brain from the mindset that every action you take must yield exactly what you expect to seeing each action as an experiment. Experiments are meant to be relatively lower risk, provide feedback to make midcourse corrections, and create a path of increased growth,capacity, and confidence.
So when you experiment again and again, you hold fear’s kryptonite!
Have a great day,
