Motivational Quote - Strive for progress, not perfection.

SparkPeople's Comments

On your path to healthy living, you'll have good days, bad days, and days that are "just OK." Don't go into your lifestyle changes with the mindset that you have to be perfect all the time, because you don't! Instead, focus on taking baby steps to health that will help you reach your goals.

So true. I've seen a lot of people quiet things because they weren't perfect.

I have learned that no matter what we do in life, we have to take one step at a time, especially with habits and addictions.

I need to remember this one! Still trying to break the all or nothing mentality in my head.

Boy oh boy, this is one for me! My perfectionism is too fierce that it can take over a good project into a lower rating, so...Progress is what I should keep my eye on to create a great result!!

One of my friends told me that she doesn't make resolutions in January but picks a word for the year. Her word this year is FOCUS; mine is PROGRESS. This quote speaks to me.

Yes progress is very attainable if you work at it, perfection isn't…and what is "perfection" anyway? Another thing that's in the eye of the beholder! I just did my weekly weigh in and am the same as last week….BUT…I lost an inch off my waist!! So that's progress right? :)
