What is Perfection? Who decides what is Perfect and what is not? Do we really Need to be Perfect? Do YOU feel you Need to be Perfect?
These days the Feeling to be Perfect is highly present with a lot of people these days.
People “need” to be Perfect within their Job, they need to be the Perfect Husband or Wife, the Perfect Father or Mother as these days it seems people expect you to be Perfect.
Perfection comes with Looks and Status as it’s obviously Very important how you Look, what kind of clothes you wear, what kind of car you drive, what kind of house you live in…..but brings Perfection also True Happiness?
Of course, money makes life very easy to achieve some things but behind the scenes, are these people truly happy?
Do these people Really what they like doing? Do these people Really live their Dream?
Are you someone who “needs” to Be Perfect? How does it make you feel? Or would you rather be a bit less Perfect but more Happy?
To find out of you fit in the picture of the “need to be Perfect” you can read the following checklist:
Are you scared to make Mistakes?
Do you recognize Performance Anxiety within yourself?
Do you always try to look at your best, fancy to show off towards others?
Do you always try to emphasize your credibility?
Are you always unhappy with the results when you have done something?
Do you see every Relationship as a Competition?
Do you always like to Do and Be better than others and try to be “the boss”?
Do you always like to stay Loyal even when it goes against your own principles?
Do you always like to finish your tasks as soon as possible?
Do you often want to push things aside?
Do you often cheat to achieve the desired results?
When you recognize most of those points within yourself you can say you want to Be Perfect.
But is it really needed?
When you struggle with being Perfect you can for example get upset and get depressed when things don’t turn out the way you would like them to turn out.
As when it doesn’t meet your requirements it can be very “hurtful” in some way and your feelings might get really upset about it.
So what can you do to change this, to Be less Perfect and in this way prevent to become upset and depressed?
Everyone has his weakness and less good sides of character. When we have unrealistic expectations from ourselves and others then we can’t do anything else than become dissapointed and fail in our work and relationships with others.
It’s important to see our mistakes and faults as lessons which we can learn from and grow further in our Personal Development or Self Improvement.
Mistakes are a part of our Path, our Journey and our Learning and Growing Proces.
Remember, even when you do something that doesn’t work out right you Are still Good Enough ;-). Only if it would be just for trying in the first place.
When you try to avoid making mistakes this also means you exclude yourself or close yourself for new opportunities.
Without trying you deny yourself from new experiences, knowledge or chances.
And That would be a huge mistake, wouldn’t it? ;-)
Throw your feeling of “Need to be Perfect”, especially towards the outher World, over board and listen more to your Inner Feeling.
This Inner Feeling knows exactly what you Want and what you Need.
Remember this…… it’s often the little imperfections that makes people looking Beautiful and Outstanding :-)
