I have first hand experience of this, fairly often actually, and once I get over myself, my confidence improves immediately.
I have absolutely no doubt this is an ongoing cycle of growth, which is quite thrilling.
Once we have side stepped hope and are a bit more comfortable with feeling a teeny bit insecure and being open to what is ahead of us, we are well on the road to creating something that we have desired, and not only that, if we aim to enjoy the journey rather than getting fixated on the outcome, I think that is the secret to success.
I always say that wisdom lands far too late, but when it does land, it is so good, it’s like all my stars have come into alignment.
So, if we go on a journey without getting too attached to the outcome, we become curious rather than anxious about the result. We might even look forward to being faced with a challenge, as the journey has lured us in, filled us with energy.
The journey is about what works, not who is right or wrong, that’s the wisdom that lands, a knowing that there is constant change. My own definition of perfection, is being a master of change.
