Sometimes, we get in our own way by trying to be perfectionist at whatever it is we’re engaging in currently. You can sabotage your success or getting ahead in the process, by trying to be perfect. No one on earth, is perfect. Trust the process and know that your hard work & dedication to whatever it is, and over time, will pay off or it will be a lesson learned.
In your journal, list ways in which you know you are getting in your own way first and then create actions steps for yourself to do the work, and then move completely out of your own way.
