Perfectionism will kill your book

You might think that wanting to be perfect is a good thing. It's not. Especially not in business.

Let's get one thing straight - Perfection is unattainable. Probably, that is because quality (in anything) is subjective.

All I do is study why people are successful in comparison to others. I am seeing that the most successful people on this planet are not perfectionists at all. They seek excellence, but above all they only seek results.

And there is a big difference between results and perfection. In a sense, people hold themselves back from starting that business, finishing that book, or going after what they really want. Why? Because they want it to be perfect.

That want becomes their fall-back excuse. It becomes the reason they hold off from finishing anything in their life.

You want to know something about the world? No one care how hard you try. They only care about what you produce. Harsh words to hear, I know.

Let's look at someone I think we all know: GRANT CARDONE.

I want you to read his first book. There are major problems with his writing from start to finish. But, did that hurt him? No. Because he understands the golden rule - Done is better than perfect.

Sure, you want things to be of high quality. We all do. The pursuit of excellence keeps us getting better every single day. However, if you let your own self hold you back from putting something out into open for the world to see because you only want perfection, then you will have no one to blame but yourself in the end.

One more piece of information that will blow your mind:

We are on pace to help 100 entrepreneurs bring their story to life in a book this year.

And you know what? Not one has lived the perfect life. They all have made mistakes, missteps, and miscalculations. And THAT is what makes their stories ATTRACTIVE.

People can relate to not being perfect. The constant search for real results is what makes them people to admire. That's how they inspire, teach, and guide others.

Don't seek perfection, seek results.

Get it done, DreamStarters.
