The perfectionist struggles to experience growth for fear of failure. Always planning and seeking 99.9% in their theoretical results which makes them fail to launch in the real world.
By seeking excellence we acknowledge failure is very much a part of the growing experience.
Unless we are willing to fail miserably from time to time, we won’t know the adrenaline rush between achieving something great and perhaps flopping miserably in front of everyone.
Nothing brings focus better than doing something we are half prepared for.
A perfectionist tends to follow
A person who seeks excellence tends to become a leader
Try failing from time to time and the joy that comes from not taking ourselves too seriously becomes overwhelming.
