We live in a world obsessed with perfection and the relentless pursuit of self-improvement. We chase after the unattainable ideal of being as perfect and call this self-development. But it’s time to wake up and face the facts: embracing imperfection is the secret to balanced and sustainable growth.
Once upon a time, there was a woman with a dream. She knew the best way to make a dream a reality is turning it into a goal, so she did. Then, she developed a plan for achieving her goal. It seemed like nothing could stop her. She even had a reward plan in mind for when the dream became reality. What she didn’t do was celebrate tiny victories along the way. After months of consistent effort towards her goal, she didn’t feel like she was any closer to it, even though she was. It felt like all the hard work she put in was wasted. She struggled onward for a while longer, but in the end, she gave up on her dream. I tried, she said, but it didn’t work out for me. If only she knew the secret, it could’ve been different.
