Don´t try to be perfect – Be real!

Don´t try to be perfect - Be real!

Today’s video is going to be one of the most important videos I’ve done in quite a while. And it’s also going to be one of the least impressive ones in terms of visuals and things like this. 

And the reason for that is obvious. It doesn’t have to be perfect. That’s what I want to talk to you about today.

And that is also why I’m on purpose, going to do this video in one take and not edit anything, anything at all. What I’m talking about now is going to be done in one take without edits to make you see that people mess up. And that that’s fine. There’s nothing wrong with it. So let’s dive into this.

When I started out and when I started coaching and working with people, I thought, first off, that the background here behind me was the most important thing, except for this one. My face and my clothing. And I can’t do much about the face. That’s what it is. And of course, I can buy new clothes and I can do stuff like that, and that’s nice.

And I could buy a new studio, I could buy green screen, and I could do lots and lots of things with the backgrounds here. I thought that when people saw me either on meetings or on videos like you’re doing right now or in any other way, when I’m at the computer, at the camera recording something, doing anything, 

I thought that it was so important. And what I realized over the years that I’ve been doing this is not people don’t care. Literally, they don’t care. I wouldn’t advise you to have lots of trash behind you, or I wouldn’t advise you to sit here naked or sit here with a crazy outfit on unless you’re doing that for a specific purpose.

At the end of the day, people watch what you’re doing. They connect with you, they talk to you, and they interact with you based on you, not based on anything else. 

And if you look at, for instance, how many followers you have on social media, or if you look at how many people view your videos, or if you look at any of these metrics and you’re chasing that metric, you’re going to be disappointed. 

It’s not about that. It’s not about getting high rates, getting a lot of traffic or anything like that.

It is about one specific thing, at least for me, that is. It’s about helping people, inspiring people, and sharing my knowledge. 

And if you’re anything like that, people won’t care how it looks. People won’t care about the pimple or that cut you have from Shaving or whatever it is. People don´t care!

Heck, I lost my hair. I had to do something about that. Hey, I shaved it off. Let's make it work. It's not about those things, but we tend to think it is because we're brought up in a society where looks matter, where you need to be a professional all the time and where things need to be in a certain way and trust me, they don't.

It’s not about being perfect. You know what it’s about? It’s about being authentic. It’s about being you. It’s about connecting with other people.

And if you do that, if you’re actually you and if you’re actually connecting with people, People are going to resonate with it. If you’re scared that sharing your ideas, your thoughts or your vision on the world Is going to scare people away, you’re absolutely right, but bear with me because something else happens as well. When you start spreading your ideas, your thoughts and actually speaking your truth, you are going to scare people away or you’re going to hear you see, I just messed up. It doesn’t matter. You are also you’re going to scare people away or you’re going to push them away Because they don’t resonate with you.

But you know what happens as well. The people who do resonate with you, you’re going to pull them in and as always, it’s not about just doing one thing at one time, speak your truth and be the authentic you and you will see a huge, huge increase of people actually wanting to connect with you, Clients wanting to work with you and literally people coming into your life that you were hoping for. 

Stop being perfect. 

Perfect is boring. 

Let’s be you!
