There are those who look for all the reasons why they Can’t. And there are those who look for ways to say ‘Yes we Can.’ I know for myself I spent many years being one of those who looked at all the reasons to say ‘No I Can’t do this.’
“Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.” – Henry Ford
There are times in life when we feel overwhelmed by all the things we need to accomplish. For some of us, this can be a daily norm. And it very well may be true. We have to mow the lawn, clear away all the dead branches. Pick up kids from school. Take them to their after school activities, be it karate, Scouts, dance, etc. Repairing damage to your website after a mishap that cost you two months worth of work. There is always something in front of us that requires our attention.
Housework is the type of work that no one notices unless it’s not done.
“If practice makes perfect, but nobody is perfect. Then Why Practice?”
This was a question I once heard during a group conversation. It was several years ago, and I was not prepared for such a question. Quite honestly, it completely stumped me. And over the years I have found myself pondering that very question.
Perfection is in the Journey
We practice towards perfection, not for the attainment of perfection. But for the growth of the experience. I practice because I want to be better than I am.
