On my run this morning, I was listening to a lesson from January Donovan’s Art of Being A Woman Masterclass about managing critics.
When you’re growing — whether you’re working on creating a new habit, learning a new skill, or starting a new business or hobby — you’re going to have critics.
And one of the biggest critiques might be, “you’re not consistent. You’re always trying different things. What makes you think THIS time it’s going to work?”[Sometimes that biggest critic is yourself, no?]
Here’s my counter to that critic:
Growth is messy. It’s full of mistakes, failure, and inconsistency.
Sometimes you have to be inconsistent before you can be consistent.
It’s by shaking things up with inconsistency that you find that which is actually worthy of consistency.
Cheers to you, friend, as you’re taking steps forward to growing, learning, and showing up every day!
