Help, we are never going to be perfect!

Posted by on Nov 20, 2015

Lovely Pauline,

I sense your urge to write the perfect ‘blog’. It reminds me of Liz’ advice:

“you BOTH have to watch to not be perfectionists!”

I have made one blog…ever. Three days I needed to make it ‘perfect’. Checking all the ‘SEO Rules’. I hated it, I didn’t feel authentic and it stopped me from writing again.
No, I am not a perfectionist.

Nothing I do is perfect…

Haha, I feel avoiding perfectionism will be a tough call for us.

Trying to do a perfect job blocks me from continuing a blog and sending out a newsletter. And I am sure it does me more harm than just that. I am trying to adapt a more experimental mindset. To get your own business of the ground I see there is no other way:

JUST DO IT!

Scheveningen Skinny Dip– Launch new event concepts
– Find participants for our Business Retreats
– Put a price on our workshops

Take a deep breath and dive in, Bbbbrrrrr.

When I started with the WE Club I wore a wet-suit. I tried to be invisible, hiding behind experts, like Neza and Kristin. Pauline you told me I look like a ‘mouse’. Ai, that hurt my ego. At the same time I know you are right. I feel it too.

I am not yet living my full potential.
Something is keeping me back. I am present but not able to really step into my power. To own it.

I realise that LESS protection IS MORE connection.

I need to take of that wet-suit. And the bikini. All out! Completely naked.

These letters are a journey to find out how to be real, to be authentic and to be vulnerable in business. How to build real connections to grow a supportive community based on LOVE and ABUNDANCE. This is the way I choose to live my life. And I choose to live it with people that understand the joy of skinny sipping.

And Yes one of them is You, Pauline!

Liefs,

Marja

For this letter I did not follow SEO rules, but I find inspiration in Kitty’s Cheat sheet.
Last year I worked for Bucket Buddies, a start-up to help friends reach goals together. They published my first blog..
This photo was taken on November 2nd ’15. I was skinny dipping in the sea by Scheveningen. No photoshop was used.
