Perfection is a word often used these days as something we should strive for… seek out at all cost!
Sacrifices will be required to achieve this perfection often effecting your happiness and time.
Some people succeed in their goal and some struggle immensely, often losing their identity and self-worth in others ideology.
This is what I refer to when we talk about negative perfection… when it becomes something that consume us, a barrier, or toxic rhetoric to your individual growth.
I often think of a quote my father shared with me as a child, as a small business owner he had experienced some tough time on his journey but was always the deepest thinker.
The quote was as follows:
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Confucius
My interpretation of these words is that we cannot let the fear of failure stop our growth, failure is ok because we learn from it. The minute we stall or stop we create barriers in our path.
· Just keep moving forward – Pareto Principle states that 80% of our success will come from 20% of our work.
· See your unique skills and play to your advantage – You are individual and unique, collaborate and welcome discussion as your views will be of value.
· Embrace your success – Take a moment to feel joy, the world moves fast, and you should share your successes.
