Success Does Not Mean Perfection

"Aim for success, not perfection.

Never give up your right to be wrong,

because then you will lose the ability

to learn new things

and move forward with your life."

~Dr. David Burns

When you aim for perfection, you insure frustration and disappointment because no one can be perfect. Often it is better to define your success as 90%. You will learned from your experiences and will be able to move on in your life. Often the best lessons are learned from mistakes--not perfection.

This week: Notice how often you attempt to "be perfect." This week, change your definition of success to 90%, and notice what happens. Are you able to move on more quickly and easily? Do you still have the learning necessary for future efforts?
