You don’t have to be perfect to help somebody else. All you need to be is a few steps ahead of the people you are helping.
Do you ever hold yourself back because you don’t feel you are perfect. You’re not quite ready. You maybe you want to do videos or you want to get your workout, but you are like, yeah, I’m not sure it’s not the right time. I don’t look quite right. Am I ready? Am I good enough? Have I achieved the level that I want to achieve?
There’s all these things that can come up in our mind and hold us back. And sometimes it can hold us back for years and years. My name’s Michael McIntosh and I’m the co-founder of awaken academy where we help people become spiritual life. Coaches, authors, teachers, course creators have an online business.
And this is extremely common problem. Not feeling good enough or perfect enough already enough to actually get things out there. Right now I’m doing this video. I’m actually a little bit tired. I have a slight headache and I’m purposely doing this video in the state There’s all sorts of reasons why this is not a perfect video.
And are any of the videos perfect. That’s a good question, but the thing is, what I’ve learned over the years is that if we wait around to have every single thing lined up perfectly, if everything has to be just set up exactly right. In every situation, feel a certain way, have our hair is a certain way, have the situation a certain way, the camera’s a certain way. If we do this, we may literally never finish anything.
So many of our students have told us that they have courses near nearly finished, but they haven’t published them or they’re wanting to do coaching, but they feel they’re not quite good enough yet. This is a major problem.
What are we gonna do about it? That’s the big question. What can you do about it? The key thing to remember, this is so important. is to realize that you don’t have to be perfect to help somebody else. All you need to be is a few steps ahead. of the people you are helping. Let me say that again. You don’t have to be perfect.
You don’t have to have attained everything in your life to help somebody else. You just need to be a few steps ahead. You need to be a little bit more experienced. You need to have developed something or learn something that the people you’re helping don’t know, or they’re not quite there yet. So for example, let’s.
About how to relax, how to let go. You might not be perfect at it, but somebody else is in a constant state of stress and they’re freaked out. And they’re like really out of control and really anxious. And you can help them go from super stressed and anxious to less anxious and stressed and more and more relaxed.
And they will be extremely grateful for you to help them do that. They’re not gonna say you are not perfect. They’re gonna say thank you so much. that you help me relax a little bit more. And this applies to just about anything you can think of doing. So next time you are having these thoughts.
I’m not perfect. It’s not ready realize that chances are, it’s never gonna be perfect. Many people have done their work in the absolutely most imperfect situation. A lot of artists have had to figure out how to do their work and not a perfect environment. Many musicians do their music in their bedroom.
Many authors have had to write on, on the plane or on, on a bus or surrounded by other people. So chances are, there’s never gonna be a perfect time or a perfect situation for you, but at the same time, people need help. We are here as spiritual people to help others. We’re part of the great awakening that’s happening on our planet.
And you can do a video or share something or post something. And it might touch one person’s heart. It might make a difference to one soul. And then another soul we’ve been in a situation where someone wanted to join one of our courses and she never joined. And one of our team reached out to see if this person was alright and it turned out, her husband answered the phone and said she’d committed suicide.
And that really hit our hearts because if she. Come to us sooner. And if we’d been able to help her faster, chances are she’d still be alive. And she would actually be able to be sharing her work and helping others and really healing the things in herself. So you literally might be saving someone’s life by actually going out there and doing your great work.
So please go ahead. Don’t hold back. I know I’ve held myself back many times. I’ve had to learn this lesson and hopefully this video inspires you to share your beautiful message and your beautiful light in the world. I want to thank you so much for your beautiful presence.
