Brave, Not Perfect with Reshma Saujani

Jill on Money with Jill Schlesinger - June 6, 2019 - 28:12

Imagine if you lived without the fear of not being good enough. If you didn't care how your life looked on Instagram, or worry about what total strangers thought of you. Imagine if you could let go of the guilt, and stop beating yourself up for tiny mistakes. What if, in every decision you faced, you took the bolder path?That’s the mission of our latest guest, Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code and author of Brave, Not Perfect: Fear Less, Fail More, and Live Bolder. Too many of us feel crushed under the weight of our own expectations. We run ourselves ragged trying to please everyone, all the time. We lose sleep ruminating about whether we may have offended someone, pass up opportunities that take us out of our comfort zones, and avoid rejection at all costs.There's a reason we act this way, Saujani says. “As girls, we were taught to play it safe. Well-meaning parents and teachers praised us for being quiet and polite, urged us to be careful so we didn't get hurt, and steered us to activities at which we could shine.”By choosing bravery over perfection, girls can find the power to claim their voice, to leave behind what makes them unhappy, and go for the things they genuinely, passionately want. In Brave, Not Perfect, Saujani shares powerful insights and practices to help us let go of our need for perfection and make bravery a lifelong habit. By being brave, not perfect, we can all become the authors of our biggest, boldest, and most joyful life.Have a money question?
