We all know that our 'Big Why' is supposed to help us stay motivated on our way to our goals. But what if we are confusing our Big Why with our ultimate purpose? It might sound good, but may not be enough to keep us motivated or keep up our momentum.
Sometimes if our Big Why sounds 'needy' (I want to be famous, I want applause and recognition, I want to prove to 'so-and-so' that I can do this thing) we may ignore that reason and grab onto something that sounds more enlightened or inspired.
It's time to start where we are and claim our authentic Big Why. It will change as we grow and expand, but we have to start with what will get us moving in the direction of our dreams now.
I'll dive more into this on my next video.
I had plans on shooting a video from Spokane when I was visiting my daughter. I even brought my camera and tripod with me. Unfortunately, it was a plan that never made it to fruition. Does that ever happen to you?
In today's video (less than 3 minutes) I share a story from the book, Black Box Thinking, by Matthew Syed about a ceramics teacher who ended up showing that 'practice makes perfect.'
So many of us are stuck with the idea that everything has to be perfect or that we have to be 100% ready before we take action. And then we lose momentum.
We are better off adopting a mindset that 'good enough is good enough' and that not only do we get better with practice, we get loads of great information and feedback.
Why the heck are we so afraid of failure or looking foolish? It's time to stop being a perfectionist and time to start sharing your talents, skills, and dreams with the rest of us.

In this video, I talk about three little excuses that stop us in our tracks in moving forward in the direction of our dreams.
Our mind will come up with all sorts of excuses and reasons why now isn't the right time to take action.
We each have a big dream, the dream that gives our lives meaning and purpose. Let's not throw that dream away because of these little excuses.
Janet works with women who struggle with putting everyone else first, settling, playing small, and not following their dreams. She helps them move beyond the negative voices in their head so they can unleash their purpose, unmask their brilliance, and uncover possibilities that they have been blind to.
