Most of the successful person out there are normally those who is willing to make more mistake. Successful people are willing to risk making mistake, they don’t take mistake personally as in front to their self worth, instead, use it primarily for learning.
Here is the ultimate success formula: Action -> Feedback -> Correction
When you take action in this world, most of the time you’ll get feedback based on the action you took. From the feedback, sometimes you need to take correction of your action. Then you take action again and do the same cycle again until you become better. It’s this simple to become success but not so many people will follow this step. People will be stopped by their own stories on the feedback and correction. “Oh.. I’m not good enough..“, “I’m a failure“, “I shouldn’t doing this“, etc.
Successful people understand this simple concept and keep taking action get feedback and do correction. They don’t really have the whole story around it, they just do it. Only your own BS stopping you from taking action.
Most people want things to go very right, everything line up perfectly before they take action. Otherwise they will say “I don’t think this is for me“, “Oh.. this is too hard“, etc. You have to understand that correction is natural, in your business, money, relationship, personal development. How many people notice that “two steps forwards, one step back” is natural.
Talking about perfection, perfectionist will actually have hard time to become successful. Perfection is actually a form of fear: fear of failure, fear of disapproval, even fear of success. Often perfectionist have feeling of unworthiness behind that. They’re trying to feel what they don’t feel they have, trying to feel perfect means they don’t feel good enough. Here is the issue why perfectionist stuff doesn’t work, if the source/person take action, they do something and the source is not good enough, then everything they do is not good enough. If you’re a perfectionist that always feel not good enough, then everything you do will also not good enough. Not only what you do is not good enough, but everyone /everything around you is also not good enough. You can’t win this way.
