Progress NOT Perfection: The Real Deal Success Recipe

As Featured in:  Soul Woman Sanctuary Magazine

Why do some people feel happy with so much less than others who appear to marinate in misery with monetary over flowing abundance? Could it be in the way success is measured? Could it be the easiest way to achieve peace in this life exists in progress vs perfection?

Consider the first man on the moon got to his destination by being in a rocket which was on track perfectly approximately only two percent of the time. Only two percent of the entire journey! Yet, the goal was astonishingly accomplished which changed history forever for all mankind. Was it maintaining perfect progress towards the moon or being perfectly on track which most powerfully propelled ultimate victory?

My point is this; consider measuring your life and goals in terms of progress rather than perfection.

Think of something right now you want very much in your personal life, your business, or even in your family which you don’t yet have. Consider the progress you have made in this area in the last year, two years or even ten years, and ask yourself if you don’t instantaneously feel more inspired, uplifted and hopeful.

Realize you might not be where you want to be, but you’re definitely not where you use to be!


 
So next time you need a little jolt of joy in your life journey, adjust your internal thermometer to focus on the great amount of progress you have made in learning, growing, changing and adjusting to the inevitable ups and downs of life, instead of comparing and despairing in the futile illusion of being perfect. The truth is; progress IS perfection.

This Story will Shift the Way You Think about Stress Forever

A young lady confidently walked around the Room with a raised glass of water while

Leading a seminar and explaining Stress Management to her audience. Everyone knew she

Was going to ask the ultimate question, ‘Half Empty or half full?’

She fooled them all.   “How Heavy is this glass of water?” she inquired With a smile.

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To 20 oz .

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t Matter. It depends on how long I hold it.

If I Hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my

Right arm. If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an Ambulance. In each case it’s the same weight,

But the longer I hold it, the heavier it Becomes.”  She continued, “and that’s the way it is with Stress.

If we carry our burdens all The time, sooner or later, as the burden Becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able

To carry on.”  ”As with the glass of water, you have to put It down for a while and rest before holding it

Again. When we’re refreshed, we can carry on With the burden – holding stress longer and

Better each time practiced.  So, as early in the evening as you can, put All your burdens down. Don’t carry them

Through the evening and into the night. Pick Them up again tomorrow if you must.

Resisting Resistance

Why do we always seem to resist the very thing we want most? What is up with that?

You Can Do It!

Resistance manifests itself in many ugly ways, none of them helpful towards creating a full life you can love.

Let’s look at three top ways resistance can manifest itself, and how to transform these obstacles into stepping stones.

1. Procrastination-

This is huge. We often resist our own greatness by procrastinating. It always seems the top of the refrigerator needs to dusted, the windows washed, or the car cleaned, right when you plan on attacking one of your top priorities. This sabotage against success keeps you hostage, blocking your most creative self from engaging the world.,

2. Addictions-

Addictions can also be a form of resistance in that they suffocate your true self with a person, place, or thing, instead of keeping the focus on what you really want. Recognizing this addiction is only counterfeit happiness, is key.

3. Busyness-

Ever said, “I just don’t have time for that?” This is really not true, because we all make time for the things we want to do, not necessarily what we need to do. Staying busy in a drama king/queen life, only masks what you authentically desire to be busy with. So how do you transform these forms of resistance into platforms which spring board you into valuable action/results? Here is a winning equation to write down, and post where you can see it regularly.

Awareness + Acceptance = Action

You must first be aware you are resisting something of your own free will. Once you are aware you are doing this to yourself, you can accept it is happening, and you want to stop the behavior. Once you accept it is your choice to resist, you understand it is also your choice to stop revisiting. This can lead to a new action. A new action which results in getting your desire accomplished.

Laughter is a great medicine of the mind without side effects.

When you catch yourself resisting, laugh at yourself and admit, “There I go again!” When you bring resistance out in the open, you remove any power it has over you.

Resistance can be a positive road sign to motivate you to a higher level of creative expression, success, and a transformation.  A sure seal your best self is on it’s way.  Name it and claim it!
