In my previous post on “perfection”, I stated that anyone can create their ‘perfect’ world, life or career.
But now, I’d like to elaborate more on this topic with a different perspective. You know about the saying- ”Nobody is perfect”, but I say NOBODY WANTS PERFECT, NOBODY LOVES A PERFECT PERSON.
We chase perfection in every facet of life, even though we know we can’t achieve it and in this vicious circle of chasing and not achieving, makes us fall into the pit of disappointment. And there’s a humongous role of the crowd in poking you into that pit.
Suppose you have achieved perfection and celebrating it with the world, there comes one person pointing at you and yelling that you are not perfect for so and so reasons. With that mark of dishonor, you lose out your ‘perfect’ status. Hence, nobody loves perfect.
So what you got to do now if not chase perfection?
Did I mention that we need not to chase perfection? No, we should chase perfection and fall into that pit of failure. BUT we should come out of it by learning something from that failure and be better than what you were before.
If you know about the saying,” If you aim for the moon, you will at least be among the stars”, then follow it!!
I’d like to add one more thing. Recently my physics teacher gave a speech, which taught me the importance of INTROSPECTION. It means to examine or observe one’s own mental and emotional processes. And you might think why I’m correlating this word to my post. Well it has a positive role in chasing perfection. You introspect yourself every day. You examine and evaluate your mental and emotional state and CHANGE according to your plan. When you change, you have done something new, something creative, something forward in your life!
So, with accordance to my previous post, create your own perfect. You create a new YOU while introspecting yourself – everyday.
Chase perfection and achieve excellence!!
