How To Help Others When Your Own Life Is A Train Wreck

Are you someone who believes your life has to be picture perfect first, before you can help others with their life challenges, for fear of feeling like a fraud?
I can relate.
As someone who likes to have his life in order and his facts straight, I’m deeply familiar with the temptation to hold back until I can walk the talk.
However, perfection is a deceptive rabbit hole that can prevent the expression of your unique empathic gifts, as well as your ultimate fulfilment — if you allow it.
In short, how do you know when you’re ready to help others? While there’s no bell that rings or green light that flashes, there are 3 simple strategies that help me focus on serving others, even when I face challenges in my own life, that work every time.

If perfection is your justification for holding back, you’ll be happy to know that using these strategies does not lead to self-deception or sub-standard work.
It does, however, start to dissolve limiting beliefs and train you to look beyond your own circumstances to helping others. Moreover, it’ll help you stay grounded in your skillset, not your conditions.
Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to know:
How do you know when it’s time to stop perfecting and start impacting, as it were?

The biggest challenge to contributing to a better world, is overcoming with the voice in your mind that says, “Who am I to help others? I’m not ready.”

  1. I think that having your own issues makes your clients feel that they are speaking to someone that understands where they are coming from rather than someone that has just read some books or done a course
