Posted Aug 8th, 2018 in Testimonials, Blog, Overcoming Perfectionism and Failure

I'm a jump first, ask questions later kind of gal. I don't actually LIKE running, but it's a sport where you can't escape yourself. In 36 years on this planet, you'd think I know who I am. But strip away the titles, the roles, the degrees, the certifications,  who are we, really? That's the question I've been trying to answer.

"Get in the shower NOW!" I sternly said through snot and sneezing, As I learned that my son and his friends got into the Ant Killer Spray my husband left on the deck. Allergies blazing like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, I had enough of this day. CLUNK. "Son of a..." The Muskoka chair my husband was building came apart as he tried to lift it up.

We worry. That we aren't smart enough. That we don't know enough people. That we aren't fit enough. That we are screwing up our kids. That people are judging us. That our business is a failure. That we don't have enough clients. That we will sound stupid. That we will make a mistake. That we will lose money. All of these potential worries stops us from building the body we want and the business we want.
