Be Imperfect

We know who you are. You are someone who takes on HUGE things. Scary things scare you, and you do them anyway.

We know that you’re nervous because what the Whole Life Challenge represents is important to you. Why would you be nervous about something you didn’t care about?

We are also here to assure you that there is no way that the challenge has to be done, what makes the difference is that you take it on.

You may be worried that you won’t be perfect, that it’s gonna suck, that you can’t do it. You may be telling yourself that you don’t need it, that everything’s fine the way that it is, that it won’t make a difference.

Here’s the bad news – all those things are true right now. You won’t be perfect. It’s gonna suck sometimes, you won’t be able to do it all. If it were easy, it wouldn’t be worth doing!

It’s also true that things are good enough, that things are fine the way they are, and if you don’t want it to, it definitely won’t make a difference. Ask yourself, though – is “good enough” why you’re here? Are you up to a life of “fine?” How could taking something like this on make a difference, not just for you but for the people around you?

There’s nothing to “prove” in the Whole Life Challenge. Please, DON’T be perfect! Let the chips fall where they may and see where in your life you’re not consistently doing what it takes to have what you want! We KNOW that if you really had to, you could be perfect. And you probably wouldn’t learn a thing.

The Whole Life Challenge. Be imperfect.

Take it on!!!
