Thanks, Kelly Clarkson for reminding us that not being perfect is more than okay. Do YOU often feel like you are stuck on the road to nowhere without a map? NextSteps Career Coach, Romy providing tips on work/life balance and overcoming perfectionism. 


“I’m Broken & It’s Beautiful… thank you, Kelly Clarkson”

Do YOU often feel like you are stuck on the road to nowhere without a map?

I don’t know about you but I have loved Kelly Clarkson since the beginning. She has always been unapologetic and completely her authentic self. So it is no surprise her latest hit is entitled, “I’m Broken and It’s Beautiful!” 

Let’s dive into how this applies to every day life. Don’t let perfectionism stand in your way of achieving your goals and dreams or being successful. Big shout out to Kelly Clarkson for her song which was the inspiration for this title and topic. Just imagine what would be possible for YOU if you embraced this concept...

 Really, think about what is it costing you to stay where you are and not achieve what it is you REALLY want because you are waiting for the perfect moment. 

...To get it just right.  

...To find the perfect opportunity.

...To see the perfect thing.

… To not make any mistakes.

… To have guarantees

… To know without a doubt there is nothing better or no alternatives.

… Be ensured you won’t fail……..

AND what would be possible if you accepted that perfection isn’t possible and that’s okay.

Quoting the song: “The only way to live now is to know you’re gonna fly. Don’t listen to the liars and their lies. I know Im superwoman. I know Im strong. I know I’ve got this, ‘Cause Ive had it all along. I’m phenomenal. I’m enough. I’m broken and it’s beautiful.”

UMMM- thank you Kelly!

It is time to stop being stuck in perfection paraylsis. Now this is easier said than done. It won’t happen all at once. Baby steps. Practice. Practice. Practice. 

Take one aspect of your life and try it there. And then add another. Until you are doing it everywhere. 

I get it, I do, as a recovering perfectionist. I know just how hard it is. But here’s the thing, when we let it go, everything is so much better. When we accept that it will never be perfect, then we actually do better and achieve more. We find ourselves more pleased with our outcomes.

#Truth: Most of us are much harder on ourselves than we are on anyone else. 

  • If we stop and give ourselves a break we will be better off.
  • Do your best, I promise you it is more than good enough. And done is better than perfect. Trying is better than not doing. And nothing will ever change if you never do anything new or different and just stay where you are.
  • AND when that “BUT WHAT IF” voice starts…. That is your inner critic taking you on the road to no where good. Tell him to stop and be quiet. And call forth you best self and leader. 

I work with my clients on this every day. I show then how to quiet their inner critic and tap into their Inner Greatness. I show them how to FLY!  I hold my clients accountable for their dreams and goals. We create executable and realistic action plans. I love helping clients find their why, get clarity, stop undervaluing theirself, gain career confidence & just confidence in general and start effectively communicating which leads them to accomplishing their career goals, career advancement and achieving career success. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. WITH EVERY CLIENT. WE use/focus on  TLC- Time management. Leadership development. Communication Skills.

AND I WANT THAT FOR ALL OF YOU. All your desired career success and success in general can be yours and can be yours while you are BROKEN AND BEAUTIFUL!

What would be possible for you if embraced that?
