quickly, I want to share with you a killer of success. So what is the
killer of success and one of the killers of success is perfection.
So let me ask you, are you a perfectionist? Do you have to have everything perfect before you attempt to do it? And if you do, then it's not very good. So it's sort of it's a two edged sword. So I know a lot of great leaders who make a lot of money and they are perfectionist, but they have to do things very well, they want to look very good, they want to do everything properly and it's a great trait but on the other hand, I've seen so many people procrastinate and don't even start doing things because they want it to be perfect before they start.
So they say things like, “Well, until I learned how to do a perfect presentation, I'm not going to do a presentation.” That means you'll never do a presentation, “Until I'm perfectly inviting somebody to take a look at my business, I won’t invite anybody.” Well, then you'll never do because you actually get better by doing it. I remember when I first started doing presentations, I would be doing a presentation and I say something and I see somebody go, “Mmh!” What does that mean?
Next time I do presentation, don't do that bit because it annoys people, but I do presentation and I say something and they go, “Yeah.” I go, “Woo!” Keep that bit. Use it next time as well and over time, you keep adding the good bits, you keep taking out the bad bits, until your presentation becomes, the one that knocks them off the socks, it becomes powerful because you polished it, you made it look good, but unless you did all the bad ones, you would have never gotten to a good one, you would never had that amazing presentation.
It applies to almost anything, trainings, sometimes I deliver the same training because I deliver the same training here and same training there, but over time, it becomes better because I keep improving it, improving it and improving it, but if I wanted to have a perfect training, or a perfect presentation from the start, I would have never started. Same things like these videos, a lot of people are considering doing Facebook Lives or doing videos on YouTube or doing videos on Instagram but they don't start because they feel, “Oh, I'm not really, I'm not perfect.” but you won't be perfect until you start.
Like literally, take any person who does great videos, and scroll to the beginning of the videos, go back to the beginning of the YouTube channel and look at their first videos, you'll be rolling on the floor laughing You know, go on my YouTube channel and scroll to eight years ago when I first started doing videos, and they were oh my Gosh, I cringe now watching those videos. They're ridiculously bad. But I had to start there and get better over time. Like live video 8 years ago, if you told me that I would do live video without preparing, without having a chance to do 25 takes, I would have said no way, because that's what I used to do. I used to put the camera, start the video and mess up and stop.
Start again. Mess up. Stop. Start again. I don't do that anymore. I just go live because I don't care. So if I mess up if I say something wrong, whatever. It's absolutely okay because I'm okay with it. So one of the things that you have to do is give yourself a permission to fail, give yourself permission to mess it up, give yourself a permission to say the wrong things to spill the water during your video or whatever, I don't know and it's okay too because nobody really cares about that stuff. What they care is about what message are you giving them what, what value are you giving to them and so on.
That's the main thing. That's the main point. So don't be a perfectionist. You know, like Brendan Bouchard says version one point O is infinitely better than version O point O. So you starting imperfectly, you starting and messing up is infinitely better than you not starting at all, than you just thinking about it, than you just saying, “One day I'll definitely start doing my business, one day I'll start inviting people” Well you inviting somebody and then laughing at you or you trying to invite somebody and modelling up the words is much better than you thinking about inviting somebody, you know what I mean? So don't allow that perfection that wish for perfection to stop you from acting, start imperfectly and then improve on it.
