Aloha is...trying something new.
Dr. Seuss says, "You'll never get bored when you try something new. There's really no limit to what you can do."
What holds people back from trying something new is fear, doubt, lack of confidence and even an overwhelming desire to be perfect.
And, perfection is rooted in fear of criticism or even rejection.
But have compassion for yourself. It's ok not to be perfect at something especially if it's something new or different. That's just common sense, right? There's truth to the process of trial and error. That's even how many inventions came to be - they were rooted in failed projects!
Choose progress over perfection and enjoy the journey. Give yourself credit for trying something new and give yourself credit for every step you take in the direction of the desired results. In other words, celebrate the small victories as they can be just as rewarding. And, believe it or not, you don't have to be THE best. Instead take pride in just giving YOUR best! In so doing, you just may be surprised at where it might lead you and you could especially be surprised with the ultimate outcome. This is the secret to success.
Live, Love and Lead with Aloha!
