Demand Perfection Or Settle For Mediocrity
Demand perfection or settle for mediocrity - Las Vegas massage professional Kris Kelley asks...
Of yourself, demand perfection, but settle for excellence.
Demand the impossible, expect to fall short, settle for the incredible. Of others, recognize excellence, but be prepared to dispense compassion.
A lack of appreciation for the struggle to achieve perfection is endemic in our society.
Ideas such as "good enough," or "if it ain't broke don't fix it," while subservient to the demands of expediency, if employed as life-guiding principles become the seeds of mediocrity and apathy, sown for short term gain but offering few rewards to reap in the long run.
When we seek perfection from ourselves we catapult our very existence into a higher plane of artistic accomplishment with whatever resources we are afforded at the moment.
By recognizing that perfection is a direction and not a goal, and learning to be content with our best attempt to enact the perfect ideal, we embrace excellence as a life-style.
Equally, we must recognize the inherent difficulties and demands in adhering to a life of excellence, the extra-ordinary effort that it entails, and not be condescending but rather compassionate and understanding toward our fellow human being for whom the path of mediocrity has become the norm.
Let me ask you once again:
Do you insist on perfection from yourself or are you comfortable with mediocrity?
Growing our massage business is hard work. Yet, you have to put in this hard work to gain results. It really doesn't work any other way.
We can do all the massage marketing we want, try to re-schedule clients, etc., etc., yet it all just really boils down to our attitude. Do we take responsibility for our actions? Are we impeccable? Being impeccable means (to me) doing the very best we can, at every moment. As we grow, learn, of course we can then perform better and better. This is how I've grown as a Las Vegas massage professional.
How about you? Are you continuing to grow, expand, and learn? If so, what are you doing now?? Share with us below your experiences!
