Do you know how to take action when you have perfectionist personality ? This short blog post will help you overcome your perfectionist personality and you will be able to take action which you know you could take long time ago.
I’m curious if you had some ideas that could change your business and life but you hesitated to bring it to life because it wasn’t perfect ?
This happened to me so many times. Always knew what to do and had amazing ideas but it took me forever to finish it and show others.
In online business is a common thing that prevents people from taking action.
I don’t know if you are new to this industry or if you are here for a long time but I guarantee if you could let your perfectionist personality go long time ago you probably were in a different place right now. I think it was Mark Zuckerberg the founder of Facebook who said “Version 0.1 is better then version 0.0”, I’m not sure if it was him but I agree with this statement.
Take a moment and check profiles and articles of people who you follow. You will see that at the very beginnings their profiles, blogs posts, pictures and videos were Ugly & Confusing. You may think “Yeah, but they are not perfectionists”, you are wrong. Many of them have perfectionist personality but they did it and learned how to make it better/prettier.
Think for a while, if you never start or if you don’t get peoples opinion on what you do Even they will be harsh on you how can you make it better ? You have perfectionist personality so there will be always something that won’t be good for you. If you just try and you make your project live even it won’t be “Perfect” you may get surprised when people will tell you good things about it and congrats your braveness.
These are just couple points that show the characteristics of perfectionist personality. If you are still not sure if you are a perfectionist or not than think how much it took time to make a personal video or hot long it took to resale your blog or to learn the “perfect” sales script. If you think some of your activates are taking way too long than you might be a perfectionist.
There are many things I could accomplish but I didn’t because I am a perfectionist. There are some tasks that I can do very fast but for me it takes way too long because I’m always not sure if it’s ready or not. However I am ready to step up and change my perfectionist personality. Let’s see… this picture was taken in Florida last week….
I gained weight and as you can see I “don’t know” how to smile. Seeing this pic I’m talking to myself “Learn how to smile! Learn how to smile! hahaha.
Well, it is the way it is. If I didn’t see this pic probably I didn’t care much if I’m smiling on photos or not. Not because I took this photo I am more than sure that I should learn how to smile.
Another thing, videos. I supposed to do videos long time ago because I have ton’s of value to give but when I took videos somehow it was’t “perfect” so i always deleted it before I uploaded anywhere. To overcome this perfectionist personality I joined “100 day video challenge”.
I have no idea how those videos will look like but I promised myself to upload it before even watching it. Simple procedure, record and upload and after I get some interaction on that videos finally I’ll watch it. I would love to make video to this blog post but it’s very late here and my wife is sleeping next to me. I’ll try to record a video to this blog post tomorrow and update it.
People don’t search for a “perfect” video, blog post or photo. Most of people instead of “Perfect” prefer REAL. If from the beginning everything you do will be “perfect” how people are going to view you and how they will think about themselves ? I assume most of the people will think “Oh, no wonder why he/she is successful, he/she has perfect videos with visual effect, he/she is so skinny and beautiful/handsome. I am not like them, I can’t do that… am I a looser?”.
Realize that we are here for helping people, we put value and solve people’s problems. If everything you do will be “perfect” instead of helping people you will make them depressed.
If you give people a value and offer your help EVEN the things you do are not “perfect” people will appreciate you, because they will have a hope of achieving their goals. Instead of negative thoughts people will start too think “If he/she can do it I can do it too”.
Try to show real you. Nobody is perfect and there is not a thing that is perfect because everybody is different and people like different things. instead of showing your perfection, show that it’s OK to make mistakes and learn from them, it’s OK not to be perfect and if you could do that people will start to believe that it can happen to them too and inspiring and helping others is a work that we network marketers do.
