We are continually fed a line of crap: be perfect (because everyone else is).
On the surface it's a no-brainer. Nobody is perfect, right? No shit.
Then why do we have such a hard time with it? It's the reason we don't regularly publish. It's the reason we hold back. It's the reason we fear. This little voice in the back of our heads keeps repeating "not good enough. not good enough. not good enough."
Here's the thing.
We all need a practice of dancing with our fear.
It'll never go away, which is fine. But pretending that it's not there is deadly.
Ironically, dancing with our own fears over and over again is the surest way to success. It's the surest way to a full life.
