How Perfection Hinders Personal Growth

Let’s face it. You’re the type of person who strives for excellence and you expect nothing less from yourself. Whether it’s at work, in love or within your social circles, you don’t mind clocking in the extra hours just to make sure everything is the way it should be. At least, that’s what you tell yourself, anyway.

You have a tendency to steer clear from anything that you consider beneath you. Not out of arrogance, but because you want to achieve personal satisfaction.

But what will you do when things go unplanned? How is it that everything gets worse the more effort you put into it?

You’re also bothered by the fact that all of your efforts seem to go unnoticed. You’ve never expected your plans to backfire in such a way and you want answers.

You wonder if you’re the only one who really cares to this extent, that you alone seek perfection. The answer is no. In fact, the people around you have found their own ways to move on as unpleasant it may seem to you. You just didn’t get the memo.

Your life can be so much easier if you know where to focus your time, energy and strength. The things you invest in don’t have to be forced.
