Yesterday, I opened my work emails to an amazing victory. So much so I declared out loud how excited I was, that my body generated tingles.
Have you ever been faced with a challenge or an obstacle and thought how am I going to tackle this one?
I was presented with a project which at first I was curious and intrigued. I knew a snippet of dealing with this particular stakeholder and did quietly think what an amazing opportunity.
I reached out and they responded very quickly. At first I felt overwhelmed asking how am I going to achieve this in a short timeframe. I then moved to well you don’t know what this is going to entail. I asked them to send me what I needed to do.
I could have held on to the overwhelm and the story of lack of time, don’t know what it’s going to take etc but I didn’t. I kept taking imperfect actions.
I knew intuitively what I needed to do. I silenced the little voice in my head that said this is too hard, you’ll create more work for yourself, who do you think you are, you know nothing about this etc all these conversations are about keeping you small and keeping you playing small.
FEAR = False evidence appearing real. Which is something I heard though the day and I realised it was so true.
If I had let my fear take hold, I would not have followed through with taking imperfect actions and would not have arrived here in the place called it’s time to celebrate a small win for a big win is on its way, and celebrate taking imperfect actions and not listening to the little voice.
I discovered for myself that I create the celebration in who I’m being. I was already a yes to the project from the start, when the reality kicked in of what was needed and required, I didn’t let that stop me in fact I allowed it to drive and invigorate more. I only have a week, let’s do this, I’m not tech savvy, but I know what I want. Who am I to be a mentor? I know how to coach, I’ve got this.
Taking moments to celebrate the small and big wins are important. Get clear on what it is that you bring to the table to create what’s possible. You can duplicate this feeling time and time again and this internal celebration you create will be the catalyst for more imperfect actions.
