How I stop letting perfectionism hold me back by Shield Sisters Initiative

Hi friends, Wendy here! Welcome to Ditch Perfect’s Client + Community Stories series. My mission with Ditch Perfect is to help online creatives let go of their perfectionism + take action on their big creative ideas.

I’ve personally learned so much from other people's perfectionist stories + that’s why I’m sharing these powerful stories right here on the blog. Reading about personal experiences is a powerful thing + I believe there’s so much you can learn from these stories and insights too.

Today, I’m very grateful to share Raewyn Sangari from Shield Sisters Initiative ‘s perfectionist story. Over to you Raewyn!

How my client moved from perfect procrastination to creating 3 courses in 3 months

Do you have a big creative idea in the back of your mind that you’d love to make a reality, but somehow you just can’t seem to get yourself together to get started on making it real?

As online creatives, we have a running list of creative projects we’d like to take on, sometime soon or maybe further down the line. Because hey… we’re dreamers + that’s just how our creative minds work.

But thinking about those big creative ideas - whether it’s starting a blog, launching a podcast, creating a new service, reaching out to those dream collaborators, or maybe even taking your creative side-hustle full-time - brings out a *lot* of scary feelings.

Perfectionism (“I’m not good enough + can’t do this perfectly!”)

Imposter syndrome (“Who am I to do this?”)

Approval seeking (“What will they think?”)

Fear of putting yourself out there (“I can’t show the real me. People will be put off!”)

Comparison (“They’re so much further along than I am. I’m so behind I can never catch up!”)

And this leads to perfectionism-induced paralysis + procrastination.

That’s exactly what my client Annette was struggling with when she contacted me about working together through my Ditch Perfect + Take Action coaching program.

And now, 3 months later, I’m just so in awe of Annette + so proud of how far she's come in the last few months: becoming the face of her business, creating a content marketing plan from scratch and implementing it AND creating 3 digital products for her community.

Let’s dig in a little deeper to see how Annette made the amazing progress she made.
