Perfection is your enemy.
Our society is obsessed with perfection in all facets of life. But why did we start becoming so obsessed?
ARE YOU A PERFECTIONIST?
Obsessed with all the small details?
Having difficulty making decisions?
Finding yourself putting things off to a later time so it's done "just right?"
Or not even doing those things you wanted to at all?
Does that sound like you? Then you, my friend, may very well be a perfectionist.
THE PROBLEM WITH STRIVING FOR PERFECTION
Perfection DOESN'T exist.
It never has, and it never will.
It's an impossible standard to live by because absolutely no person can be perfect. We all have our flaws, and we all make mistakes.
Non-perfection makes us human.
And striving for something unattainable doesn't do you any favors. It actually hurts your progress and self-confidence.
Perfection makes YOU the barrier to YOURSELF.
THE SOLUTION TO THE PERFECTION DILEMMA
Okay, so you might be thinking, "what's the solution, Athena?"
Well, I got it for you right here!
The solution is simple: instead of striving for perfection, strive for excellence!
Make excellence your standard. Aim to do your very best always.
You can feel a sense of relief when you know you did the best you could, no matter the outcome.
Remember, doing your best does not equal to doing something to perfection.
So strive for excellence, and always do your best and be your best!
Til next time!
