Just wanted to share some reflections I’ve had about perfection.
Sometimes I think we hold ourselves to this impossible standard that comes from our perception of the success of others. But the truth is we never know anyone’s full story from the outside.
At the end of the day, it’s between you and YOU.
Your own inner strength and security is the truth you can rely on day in and day out.
If we constantly go looking for our motivation to succeed from an unrealistic model of “perfection,” it’s like we’re telling ourselves we can’t be human.
We then over-train ourselves to be influenced by outside appearances, and undermine our personal power when our happiness relies on validation based on how closely we resemble a facade of success – in comparison to people we perceive “have it all figured out.”
When you build and strengthen your sense of who YOU are and find personal security by taking personal RESPONSIBILITY for your choices and actions, you create a personal FORTRESS – an unshakable foundation that’s simply INSPIRED by external motivators, not DEPENDENT on them.
Then the only comparison that matters is the one where you measure who you are today with who you were a day ago, a week ago, a year ago.
You can celebrate the success others experience and let aspects of it serve as inspiration…but never feel “less” for not living someone else’s life.
You are whole.
You are enough.
You are everything you need to be, RIGHT NOW, and into your moving future that belongs to you, because –
You are THE CREATOR of your own life.
Thinking of you today.
