It’s OK if ‘IT’ Sucks.

I suffer from a good bit of perfectionism. It has, in the past, held me back from starting a lot of things that could have been very beneficial. I am lucky in a way, to have a bit of arrogance as well… . The two, perfectionism and arrogance, fight each other. And what comes out is action that has an edge to it. A head down, shoulder the weight, and a ‘fuck what is logical’ attitude that generally pushes me forward when it would be natural for me to stagnate.

I thought about it recently, because I sometimes see people who have A TON to offer the world but are stuck and not moving forward. Then it dawned on me, one aspect that gets me going and out of the perfectionism, is an attitude. The attitude is:

‘ It’s OK if ‘IT’ Sucks ‘

‘IT’ being whatever the Challenge is.

Maybe your Challenge is a new hobby, a new business, writing a book, starting a blog, creating a romantic relationship… YoSucking at Somethingu get the idea. Anything can be a challenge, and anything is possible if you are OK giving up your expectations of a certain result. Let it be OK if it sucks. But I have a feeling it wont. Because you wont stop there.

Everything is hard before it is easy. And when shit is hard, we suck at it. But then it gets a little easier, and a little more natural and smooth; as we fight past the ‘Suck’. Maybe we wont be world class, but almost anyone, at anything, can move past the ‘Suck’ part if they try. I just takes perseverance and a resilience to the ‘Suck’.

To get to where you want to go, Sucking at it (at first and for the beginning) is the first step.

What can you suck at today that will be a step forward in the direction you need to go?

What can you make a mess of, and have a blast with, that moves you in the direction of your Dreams?Start The Dream

Do that which excites and scares you. And remember;

Its OK if it Sucks.

You got this!

  1. I have sucked at many thing thru out my 71 years right now I suck at tightening the fence around my very big yard but I will master it I have no doubt and I have no choice. You don’t have to be great at everything it would really intimidate the rest of us if you were.

  2. I suck at time management, writing, keeping up with plans, romantic relationships… Isn’t that awesome?? I still have so many things to enjoy getting good at 🙂
