I read a fairy tale entitled: “I’m The Perfect Leader” and then I realized it was just a fairy tale.
Then I read another one, “I’m the Perfect Speaker” and then I realized it was just a fairy tale.
The next, “I’m The Perfect Husband” and you guessed it – it was a fairy tale.
Tried one more: “I’m The Perfect Dad”.
There are fairy tales and then there are realities.
The reality is, I’m not perfect in any area of my life. I don’t have to be; I just need to be in the pursuit of excellence. Isn’t it amazing that we can still be anything we want and we don’t have to be perfect? Even with our imperfections, we can offer something of value to others.
The next time you start to criticize someone for their imperfections, stop and remember: It’s better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove it!
And these are just my thoughts on a Monday morning!
