Imperfection

If you want to be perfect in life before you do something, you are going to wait for ever. It is not going to happen. No one is perfect. You don’t have to be perfect before you start something. You have to start to be perfect. If you don’t start, how can you be perfect?

If you start today, you will be perfect tomorrow. If you don’t start today, you will be imperfect tomorrow. I have never seen anyone who mastered something before they start. They start to master it.

You won’t be perfect every day, and when you stop trying to be perfect, you’ll end up better in the long run.”- Lindsey Pollak, the author of Becoming the Boss

To do great things in life, focus on what you can do. Don’t focus on what you cannot do. If you do, it will suck up your energy. Focus on what you can do well, and use it to your benefit. People don’t do something because they focus on their flaws. They focus on their weaknesses, on their flaws, on their mistakes, or on their disappointments. If you focus on your imperfection, you are killing your creativity. To be creative, you have to allow yourself to make mistakes, to be imperfect, and to be who you are.

You don’t have to be perfect before you start something. You have to start to be perfect.”

If you want to be perfect, don’t see your imperfection as a problem. See it as a chance to get better at what you do. Nobody is perfect.

Challenges

Challenges are the reasons we grow. If you don’t face difficulties, if you don’t face difficult times, it is impossible to grow. If we don’t face challenges, we won’t grow; we won’t add value to our lives. We are here on earth to add value to our lives and to add value to other people’s lives. When you are adding value to your life, you are also adding value to others. Growth is contagious. When you grow, the people around you will grow, too. If you don’t grow or add value to your life, nothing will change.

Don’t shy away from challenges. It is what you must overcome if you want to reach your destination. Whether you like or not, you MUST overcome adversity to succeed. Let us be honest. If you don’t do the work, you won’t get paid. The same is true when it comes to facing challenges. The more challenges you face, the stronger you will become. Challenges will not kill you, it will make you tougher. It will make you stronger. It will make you a better and more experienced person. It will prepare you for future challenges.

Sometimes what we call challenges are not really challenges. The ways we look at them make them difficult to face. It is how we look at problems that makes them problems. To fix it, first develop a positive mindset. Look at them through a positive lens. Believe it is going to be fine, and work hard to make it fine. And it will be fine.

The more challenges you face, the stronger you will become. Challenges will not kill you, it will make you tougher. It will make you stronger. It will make you a better and more experienced person. It will prepare you for future challenges.
