The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results - Albert Einstein.
Hi, my name is Tanya and I'm a perfectionist. I will procrastinate and second guess myself for hours, days, weeks and months before taking action for fear of messing it up and getting it wrong. At times I'm so afraid of making the wrong decision, that I won't make a decision at all (which is the same as making the decision to do nothing).
I would then pull the whole "oh woe is me" routine and fully immerse myself in the victim role and try to pin my unhappiness on everyone else.
The only way to create the life of your dreams is to take ACTION. One small step is all that's needed to create momentum, and then another, and then another. I'm not going to pretend that you will always be successful or that you will always make the right move but that doesn't mean you've failed. It means you have learnt something.
So, whatever it is you want to achieve needs to start with YOU taking one small step forward. Goals aren't achieved overnight in one giant leap, they are achieved one milestone at a time.
Great acts are made up of small deeds - Lao Tzu.
