How I stop letting perfectionism hold me back by Wholly Unimpressive

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 Rachel Bell from whollyunimpressive.com ‘s perfectionist story. Over to you Rachel!

7 things I've learned from helping my clients ditch perfect + take action on their creative ideas

What’s holding you back from doing the work to overcome your perfectionism and, finally, take action on your big creative ideas?

Ever since launching my 1-on-1 coaching program, I’ve been so lucky to have worked with dozens of creative women in helping them go from stressed-out perfectionist to recovering perfectionist, from procrastination, self-doubt + overwhelm to imperfect action-takers.

Having a backstage pass to so many transformations in my clients’ creative work (and personal lives, too!), has taught me a thing or two about raising your hand + saying yes to doing the scary thing.

Mindset blocks, hesitations, not feeling good enough or like you don’t have what it takes, wanting to backtrack… I’ve seen it all. And guess what? Everybody feels this way.

Feeling this way is not a sign to quit or to not invest in yourself. In fact, feeling this way is how you KNOW you’ve taken the right step. Because saying hell-to-the-no to your perfectionism is supposed to scare the hell out of you.

You’ve been carrying around your perfectionism for years. It’s been your trusted companion, your go-to survival mechanism, the devil you know. If overcoming perfectionism was easy, you’d done so already.

But trust me, you’ve got what it takes. You can do this. Find strength in the women who’ve gone through the process before you. If they can do it, so can you.

So, without further adieu, here’s what I've learned from helping my clients (brave women just like you and me!) overcome their perfectionism + take action on their big creative ideas.

6 inspiring blog posts about being “enough” I’m loving right now

If there’s anything I believe in wholeheartedly over here at Ditch Perfect, it’s the power of connection + community.

Running a creative business, blog, or side hustle can - at times - feel very lonely. The people around you don’t understand what it’s truly like to have big creative ideas + actually bring them to life. They question you and your commitment and sometimes you do so, too.

Then there’s the part where your inner perfectionist takes over and you spend large parts of your day wrangling her back into submission. Perfectionism has a sneaky way of leaving us isolated + questioning whether who we are and what we do is good enough.

Here’s the thing you need to know, my sweet creative friend, you don’t have to go at it alone.

There’s an entire community out there, doing great (and really important!) work in showing what running a slow, sustainable creative business that prioritizes ‘enough’ over more, more, more can really look like, that I’m excited to support.

So, without further adieu, here are 6 posts (including 1 microblog on Instagram) about being ‘enough’ that I’m loving right now.
