Strive for Progress!!

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Striving for perfection is a no-win!

We give up because we don't see how well we are actually doing. If we measure our progress based on what has NOT happened rather than what HAS, we lose self-confidence and self-esteem. It is impossible to feel good about ourselves. We are frustrated full-time, we get depressed, thinking we have failed.

‘Perfection’ is an illusion, and it is ellusive. It's a mirage, and we are setting ourselves up for a lifetime of never feeling smart enough, healthy enough, successful or beautiful enough.

Rather than wishing for the perfect body, how about we wish for the best health possible, the richest relationships imaginable, that others will be inspired by our generosity? That sounds more sustainable and fulfilling.

    It's hard to remember that, isn't it? That's something I've been working on for a very long time.
