Practice Won’t Make You Perfect
I grew up hearing the most famous quote, “practice makes you perfect”. On the other hand, I also hear about “no one is perfect”. I am confused with which of the two should I believe.
It’s impossible to be perfect all the time even if you spend most of your time practicing your craft and skills.
We all know Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time. We are aware how excellent he was when he played on the floor. Though he was that great, he admitted that in his career lifetime, he missed more shots than what he made. In other words, he’s not perfect and never will be.
Even the greatest Hollywood actors and actresses confess they have a lot of flaws too.
Even the most successful businessmen and entrepreneurs experienced a lot of failures while striving towards their success.
Even the most influential personalities in self-development and politics have their own imperfections and mistakes.
You and I have our own set of weaknesses and shortcomings too. No one is perfect and absolutely practice doesn’t make you perfect.
But I have good news for you.
Though we wouldn’t be perfect, we can always do our best to be significant. We can always do things even to its simplest form to help and inspire others. If you’re determined to pursue your passion and put extra hours developing yourself and your skills, at the end of the day you will reap its benefits. It will benefit all aspects of your life and you will live peacefully and contented.
In the eyes of others, you will be judged differently. Just ignore them for you know within yourself that you’re just doing the things you believe are important to you and to the people around you. The only accurate judgement you can get is the judgement of the Lord and yours.
Doing the things you love every day will also develop your confidence and the way you look at life. You will be programmed to always look at the brighter side and the negatives will become negligible. You will find ways on how to be valuable.
Whatever situation you are in right now, whatever dreams you are working on now, whatever skills you are investing time with now, and whatever failures and disappointments you’ve experienced lately, just never, ever give up. Remember that even though practice doesn’t make you perfect, it will prepare yourself to your greatest calling in life – which is to inspire and help others in all ways you can.
You have your own set of plans and dreams. I have mine too. Let’s continue to work on it every single day. God will be with you and me every step of the way. In His eyes, we are already perfect even before we’re born but we shouldn’t stop with knowing. We should persevere in striving and doing our best.
To your rich future,
