No perfect plan



Let’s just put it out there one more time. The path to potential is not a straight line.


Regardless of how good your plan is and how strong your self – discipline and will power…guest what?


You are gonna probably at some point make mistakes.

And when you do you got a chance to learn + reflect and remember you don’t have to be ‘perfect’.


Here is how Dr. Neff put’s it…


“Imperfection also makes growth possible. Like it or not, the main way we learn is by falling flat on our face, just as we did when we first learned to walk. Our parents may tell us a million times not to touch that hot stove, but it’s only after we actually burn ourselves that we really understand why it’s not such a great idea. The learning opportunities provided by failure can actually help us to achieve our dreams. In the words of restaurateur Wolfgang Puck, “I learned more from the one restaurant that didn’t work than from all the ones that were successes.” Yes, failure is frustrating. But it’s also temporary and eventually yields wisdom. We can think of failure as part of life’s apprenticeship. If we were perfect and had all the answers, we’d never get to ask questions, and we wouldn’t be able to discover anything new.”


Take the failure as part of the deal and mine all the wisdom and learning from it that you can.


It will end up being a great return on investment.
