What is Perfection?

Some say perfection is an illusion, while others wear themselves out trying to achieve it. I believe perfection is a natural quest that our soul seeks, but one that the human brain misunderstands.

Perfection is a quest for MORE, yet we treat it as a destination, as if somehow we are supposed to arrive at “perfect.”

A quest is a journey we choose to take, and the quest for perfection is simply the process of becoming more, every day, every week, every year.

Although that seems easy on the surface, our linear mind struggles to embrace its simplicity. In this struggle, we see ourselves as imperfect rather than accepting the process that the quest for perfection offers.

Perfection isn’t about everything going the way you want it, but rather being comfortable with the way things are, while you work on making them better.

Perfection isn’t about never making a mistake, but rather using mistakes to learn how to BE MORE.

Our soul is hard-wired for more. It seeks perfection as a form of evolution. It seeks to become more and uses both challenges and opportunity as its guide.

So rather than obsessing about “being perfect” or “experiencing perfection,” shift your focus to the process of becoming more.

In every challenge, opportunity, lesson, and course correction, simply look at how you are becoming more.

Look at the perfection you are becoming. You are perfect just the way you are, until you decide you want more.

Life is perfect just the way it is, until you decide you want more. And that, too, is perfect.

The Powerful Entrepreneurial Mindset
Mindset is essential to reach any goal. A positive mindset fuels success, and a negative mindset can prevent it. This is true in all areas of life, most notably entrepreneurship. There are three phases to building a powerful entrepreneurial mindset.
