Do you have a lot of guilt and perfectionism when it comes to your business? Owning your own business comes with a lot of pressure and often it leads to feeling like you are letting someone down or like you are always making mistakes. We really have to accept that as business owners, we are going to make mistakes. This week’s Christian business podcast is all about letting go of guilt, giving yourself grace and moving forward so you don’t continue down that path.
Accept that we can’t be perfect
It isn’t about perfection all the time. We make mistakes and the sooner we realize that the sooner we can stop beating ourselves up when the mistakes happen. There are seasons of life that are busier, and our brains are on overload, which means mistakes happen more often during those seasons.
Ask for grace + forgiveness
The first step you need to take is admitting the mistake and asking for forgiveness. People are usually understanding and sympathetic if you tell them what is going on and openly talk about your mistake. It will make you feel better and let your customers or clients know that you are human too! Not only do you need grace from those around you, but you need to give grace to yourself as well. Allow yourself some grace and don’t be so hard on yourself!
Don’t settle for continued errors
It is impossible to show up 110% every time, all the time, but that doesn’t give you an excuse to not be prepared or not do your best. If you are noticing and consistent short-coming, then figure out a system to help fix the problem: set reminders, hire an assistant, write it down, do what it takes to make it right in the future.
Failure is inevitable, but the better environment you can create, the stronger team dynamic you have, having clients who are really in alignment with your vision and care about you as a person and the stronger family unit you have, the more grace and forgiveness there will be all around. As business owners, we need to be more comfortable with admitting when we are wrong, fixing consistent problems and giving ourselves grace in the process.
