Those who constantly strive to be perfect tend to focus more on what’s missing instead of what they have.
It can be tough to feel proud of your accomplishments when you are constantly looking to be perfect.
Wanting to better yourself and grow is not a bad thing. It all comes down to how to approach it.
Here are three helpful tips to keep in mind…
Start First, Edit Later
Do you ever find yourself procrastinating on projects because you feel like you just aren’t ready?
The thought of actually getting started on something can often be scarier than the project itself.
It’s time to push aside those intrusive thoughts of “I’m not good enough…” and launch right into action.
Keep in mind, no matter what it is you want to accomplish, you don’t have to complete everything in one sitting. Take your time and edit as needed.
Setting The Bar Too High
It’s great to set the bar high and set healthy challenges for yourself.
But at the same time, it’s important to listen to your instincts and be realistic. None of us can do everything, and we all have unique strengths and weaknesses.
We all make mistakes – but we don’t have to let those mistakes define us.
Instead, we can let them shape us.
Find Meaning In What You Do
If you are ready to embrace imperfectionism try looking at yourself through a different lens.
The need to always be perfect can cloud you from finding the meaning and joy in what you do.
Just because you didn’t paint the perfect picture doesn’t mean you didn’t enjoy the moment.
What are you waiting for? Today is the perfect day to start embracing all your wonderfully imperfect parts.
