If I waited to get this post perfect, you would not be seeing it here. I would not be able to help anyone for fear of making a mistake.

When I do make a mistake, please forgive me. I will forgive you, so feel free to make as many as you require.

And smile.

They won’t be any more than me. 🙂

Are you a perfectionist?

The kind of person that always looks at something that is just finished, hearing that little voice saying: “You should have done that better.” Or: “You could have done that better.”?

Are you the kind of person that sees fault in what you have just done and then gets easily dissatisfied, discouraged, feeling that you failed or are simply not good enough at it?

From where I stand now, I would say: Congratulations! You have discovered your passion and your innate drive to shine your light.

Because: What if it is meant to be imperfect? Maybe the only thing needed is a shift in perspective. A way to turn the energy of that negative self talk into a force for good.

Imperfection rocks!

We are always evolving. Evolution and growth is inherit to being human. We will not strive to go backwards in our lives, instead we seek to move forward.

What if this little critical voice is just misinterpreted feedback? You did the best you could, which is fantastic. And now, just because of your innate wish to grow, you start to look at what the possibilities in your unfoldment are.

Because you now had an experience of doing something, you reached a next level of skills. It is natural that from this new point of view you know more and have the capacity to reflect upon what you just did.

How come that we so often misinterpret that clearer vision of the task at hand as imperfection or even failure? Let’s stop doing that and celebrate our accomplishments and the fact that we have the ability to take it to the next level.

Because isn’t that the most wonderful experience we can have as human beings? This perpetuate ability to evolve and get better at things…

Imagine the athlete who can do a 10 km run, but never did a marathon. Now he decides to do that and starts his training. Would he stop when slowing down at 20 km seeing everybody else overtake him? Or will he stop at the first moment that his time schedule is behind the world’s best time? An athlete doesn’t do that. Instead athletes start analyzing and searching for the best possibility for progress…

Maybe we should start treating our talents like athletes do! Let’s go for the process and enjoy our growth.

Embrace the perfectionism

Unhealthy perfectionism is the constant comparison between what we are actually achieving and the expectations we have of ourselves and our dreams.
