Try Your Dream


I came across this aspiration quote the other day on a notebook cover, which contained a grammatical error. Although it was not perfectly written; however, I understood the message that it intended to convey.

I read a Facebook self-confession the other day, in which the writer reflected on the impossibility of being a perfectionist-“I’m pretty sure I am my own worst enemy when it comes to my work. The key to success is not being a perfectionist. The key is getting in and getting out.”

None of us will ever become a perfectionist, though most of us willingly spend our entire lifetime, wanting, trying, hoping, aspiring and claiming to be one. Stupidly, we will, inevitably, pass this age-old “tradition” onto the next generation.

Why are we doing this to ourselves?
