Lesson 1 – Introduction to What is perfection
In the first lesson we shed light on the fallacy of perfection. We will discuss why we sometimes feel like we have to be perfect. Trying to please others is not a positive or beneficial mindset to have. Being pleased with yourself should always come first.
Everyone is comparing lives on social media and wants the perfect body, perfect image, perfect outfit, perfect life – we’re striving for this perfection, and it’s so unhealthy because there’s no such thing as perfection.
Lesson 2 – What is Perfection
In lesson 2 we discuss failure. The only way to find the success we are looking for is to fail forward. Failure can be our greatest teacher.
Perfectionism is self-abuse of the highest order.
- Anne Wilson Schaef
Lesson 3 – Introduction to the benefits of Failure
Lesson 3 is about progress. It is the progress we make each and every day that brings us closer to success. There is much progress that comes out of failure.
Achieving all that you desire comes through daily progress and a strong plan of action.
THERE ARE NO SECRETS TO SUCCESS. IT IS THE RESULT OF PREPARATION, HARD WORK, AND LEARNING FROM FAILURE.
Lesson 4 – Failure is not optional
On our journey to achieving success we encounter failure. Sometimes a great deal of failure.
It is a part of the learning process. Sometimes we can master new skills quickly, other times it can take much longer than we are prepared for.
Any way you look at it, failure is inevitable. It is time to embrace it, rather than fear it.
SUCCESS IS GOING FROM FAILURE TO FAILURE WITHOUT LOSS OF ENTHUSIASM.
- Winston Churchill
Lesson 5 – Introduction to Progress
In this introduction we ask that you take a short quiz to share with us what you know about failure.
MEN MAKE HISTORY AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. IN PERIODS WHERE THERE IS NO LEADERSHIP, SOCIETY STANDS STILL. PROGRESS OCCURS WHEN COURAGEOUS, SKILLFUL LEADERS SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THINGS FOR THE BETTER.
Lesson 6- Progress not Perfection
“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”
This quote from Benjamin Franklin is so important. Progress is and has been the way things get done in the World.
It is time that you start to look at your progress and develop a plan for how you are going to get where you want to go.
