Wednesday’s Quote – Get’re Done, Shoot For 70 Percent Perfection

Today’s quote is VERY near and dear to my heart! You see.  I AM “a recovering perfectionist!” Can you relate?

Wednesday’s Quote

“Get’er Done – Shoot for 70% Perfection!” ~ Perry Lawrence

Perry Lawrence aka @AskMrVideo on Twitter is one of my Video Mentors.  He was the very first video mentor I had ~along with Carrie Wilkerson aka @barefoot_exec on Twitter.  I took a class with both Perry and Carrie called Video Magnetism.  That’s another blog post! ;)

Recovering Perfectionism

I do care how I come across in a video ~and one should, however, when I’m creating a video and feel I’m getting too finicky, I can hear Perry’s voice whispering (well, maybe not whispering ;)  in my ear… “Roz just get’re done – shoot for 70% perfection!!! You’ll improve as you go!”

It’s OK “Not To Be” Perfect

2010 Is The Year of Imperfection ~ It’s interesting… since I started doing video, I listen VERY closely to people talking LIVE on TV, on the web, during webinars, teleseminars – on stage. Many of these people I respect and admire, but some I did know before – for this exercise it does not matter whether I know them personally or not! What I listen for are “stumbles, pregnant pauses, actually anything that shows imperfection!” WAIT… before you think I’m mean or nuts… these stumbles and imperfections “tell me” It’s OK to be JUST YOU… NOT Ms Perfection!  You see… We are ALL just people first! IF we were perfect we’d have nothing to strive for! ;)

HONESTY TIME ~ I did not always feel this way. It was a painful journey, and sometimes I slip, but my base is strong enough to pull myself back! I’d love to hear your thoughts?

Monday’s Quote: Honor Your Teachers – Both Human and Otherwise

None of us got where we are by ourselves.  Whether we were encouraged or discouraged ~ there are many someones to thank!

I came from a VERY negative and emotionally unsupportive upbringing.  I would not even share all that was said to me, but emotionally unsupportive says it all ~for now!

About 10 years ago I began learning I was not unique and certainly not the only one who was brought up in a verbally abusive household.

However… it is that very emotionally unsupportive background that has molded me into the compassionate, caring, loving and supportive person I am today!  It took me a lifetime to figure this out or more specifically after 911.  You are welcome to read about that here. Looking back, that was only the beginning!

I would imagine if I took the time to think of all those things, people and incidents which influenced me since I came to the web almost 20 years ago I’d probably have a laundry list of names and events.  This is why today’s quote intrigued me so much ~in fact I added a revised version of my own.

Monday’s Quote

“No matter what accomplishments you achieve, somebody helped you.” ~Althea Gibson

Roz’s Version:

“No matter who you are or what you’ve accomplished in your life, somebody or something helped you get there.  Give yourself the gift of time to think back, revisit and honor them all!” ~Roz Fruchtman

Enjoy your week!

Sunday’s Quote: When You Open Your Mind…

I had a very different quote planned for today, but I was inspired to write this one while listening to a teleseminar — at 5AM  — with Pam Brossman @PamBrossman who specializes in “Helping You to Build Your Brand Using Video Marketing,” and Lethia Owens @LiveYourBrand a Personal Branding Strategist who teaches you how to Live Your Brand because YOU are your brand.

Both ladies were off the hook with their “workable” ideas and solutions.  As each spoke I saw the possibilities and techniques in a very different way.  It’s not easy to admit, but I’ve known this for a while…  I already had the belief and the passion, but somehow I had lost my spirit.  Without spirit your attitude may as well be dead ~ a bit blunt, but VERY VERY true nonetheless!

I am happy to announce that spirit was reborn again during these two calls. Thus today’s quote “further down the page!”

Look, I’m not one to tell you everything is great when I know full well many are still suffering ~ some more than others.  But I AM here to encourage you NOT TO GIVE UP!!!  Sometimes… “We need to be OUR OWN cheer leaders!” Trust me… I’m not just talking “at you” here, I am speaking “to myself” as well!” Sometimes we just have to FORCE ourselves to take action ~ especially when it become more painful not to!

Sunday’s Quote

“When you open your mind wide, the opportunities WILL NOT just walk in, they WILL FLY in!” ~Roz Fruchtman

Tuesday’s Quote – On YOU Appreciating You!

Lately my own quotes are inspired by my own life. If I tell you “I know how you feel,” this is one of those times when I can say “I’ve walked in your shoes!!!

Tuesday’s Quote

“When you’re feeling unappreciated, taken advantage of or like no one cares… STOP and do something nice FOR YOU! You’ll QUICKLY notice how the feeling changes as YOU begin to APPRECIATE YOU!” ~ Roz

It really doesn’t matter what you do, buy yourself a gift, cook a nice meal, go for a walk, enjoy the beauty nature, read a book, listen to music, watch a favorite TV show or movie, whatever!  It’s YOUR life, so It’s YOUR choice! “All that matters is: IT WORKS!!!”

How do I know?  This is one time I take my own advice.  It’s too painful not to!

What do you think? What do you do to make yourself feel better in down times? I’m sure we’d all like to know as feeling down is “not” specific to any one person!  Please respond in the comments box below.

Monday’s Quote – Life Equals God’s Best Plus Life’s Challenges

I don’t know about you, but it annoys me to no end when people tell you to “adjust your mindset” when things go wrong or you had a bad moment or a moment of doubt or regret.  As far as I am concerned “it’s called being human!”  (A little compassion and understanding goes a long way every now and again!)  Today’s quote was inspired by me having just one of those moments. 

Monday’s Quote

“Life is made up of God’s Best and Life’s Challenges ~to deny either is not being 100% truthful and unrealistic! ~Roz Fruchtman

I rewrote the above quote a number of times and then let it sit and went to listen to Joel Osteen’s TV message for this week entitled how “God Can Speak to Us Even in Our Doubts!” Can you believe it?  It was spot on to what I was feeling!

I came back and reworded it to the above quote and posted it on my Facebook Page and elaborated more about it here.  I’m feeling a lot of doubts right now and being real about it makes me feel better and less like a hypocrite ~ smiling and being positive all the time!  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not wearing my heart on my sleeve, but I felt like sharing my thoughts with you as YOU may be  feeling the same way about something in your life!

What do you think? I would SOOOOOOOO like to know.  Please respond in the comments box below.
