I found myself browsing an interesting article this morning about staying positive through winter. I like to read the news when I wake up so I’ve an idea of what’s happening in the world.
This particular article put forward an idea I found really relevant to myself. Titled ‘Do it badly’, the principle being that you shouldn’t let fear of failure stop you trying things. It encourages people to ‘have a go’ as it doesn’t matter if it’s wrong and the result may be better than expected. Tips include keeping optimistic and persevering until you achieve a better result.
I used to hold back on doing things myself due to self-criticism, but I’ve become much better at cutting myself a bit of slack and learning to go with the flow. Perhaps that’s why I’ve had the courage to try my new business. After everything I’ve been through, I’m not afraid of things being imperfect and have become more accepting of uncertainty. The challenge of my business feels less than those with my health and at least I have some choice and control over how my business develops. I know I can change things if I get them wrong and improve as I progress. I just need to crack on and hope for the best.
