Life is something we do with others and they can often be the catalyst and inspiration for our own journey.
However, each one of us has a unique journey and it is ours to discover, good, bad and average. It is our choices, it is up to us to be the one to find our path, learn our lessons, and work things out for ourselves.
No matter what others tell us or advise us, with good intention most times, there is still no substitute for treading the path ourselves.
The key is always to try to walk down the path even when it’s hard and scary. But we can never learn until we take the leap of faith and take our journey.
Whatever ideas we have there is always something more we can add, we can perfect, polish, shine and enhance.
The challenge with that is it becomes an obsession and we end up not creating, we simply end up perfecting our ideas. To create something, we actually have to share it with the world or it remains a highly tuned idea.
Perfect is really a shield we create to avoid doing things that we have been conditioned to fear. We can never perfect, as the moment we perceive it to be perfect then will find out that we’ve been out perfected. Perfect is an excuse we use to avoid the exposure that sharing what we create brings.
The only way to overcome this is to simply create to a level and then share it. We will always get feedback, some constructive and some we could choose just to ignore. But we will learn ourselves simply by pushing the button and getting our stuff out in the world.
The choice is simple, have lots of great ideas or create a prototype and make it even better each time we put it out to the world. All great things have a path of evolution, it’s a question whether or not we want to step down the path.
