Excellence is Easy Perfection Causes Pressure

It is truly amazing because this was not the direction I was going in when I sat down to do this post. The original name was going to be Walk the Walk and Talk the Talk: Make Sure You Take Care of Yourself. So how did we get to Excellence is Easy Perfection Causes Pressure.  As I sat down to type I drew a blank . I really didn’t want to do a post at all. I would have been perfectly happy diving into this new book I purchased or reading my email. Had I given into doing either of those 2 things I would not have been walking my walk or talking my talk.

My intention is to give massive content, but not just any old content. It is really important to me to give you something real and that you can relate to. I’m sure that we can all relate to doing what we said we would do and honoring our word and commitment even though at times we may not feel like it.  And if you’re like me a lot of times you will go out of your way to keep your word to others sometimes even before yourself.

So if I ‘m going to tell you to take care of yourself I have to be able to relate to the times when you just don’t feel like it and would rather be doing something else. Even though you said you are going to make it a daily habit to just take 5 minutes to breath  and do nothing but just breath just for yourself, but now there are a million other things that you have to do or would like to do, just take the 5 minutes and breath. Do this just for you.

Where does the excellence is easy perfection causes pressure come in? Sometimes we have this all or nothing attitude that if it can’t be absolutely perfect forget about it. This does not serve us and causes us to miss out on a lot of things that would make us feel better, happy, pleased, fulfilled, make us laugh, smile etc. When we want to do everything perfect this causes a lot of pressure for us as well as stress and anxiety. Pressure that is not necessary, especially when all that is necessary is that we do our best. This is excellence, doing our very best. We get to remember that all I have to do is my very best. This may change from time to time and that’s okay. Just do your best and  keep it moving.  This we can do, this is easy. This is takiing care of yourself and honoring yourself.
