To live for results would be to sentence myself to continuous frustration. My only sure reward is in my actions and not from them.
Perfectionism is slow death
Unless I accept my faults I will most certainly doubt my virtues.
I sometimes react to making a mistake as if I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a 'mistake' is a declaration of the way I am, a jolt to the way I intend, a reminder I am not dealing with the facts. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.
When I have listened to my mistakes, I have grown.
Negative feedback is better that none. I would rather have a man hate me than overlook me. As long as he hates me I make a difference
Almost any difficulty will move in the face of honesty. When I am honest I never feel stupid. And when I am honest I am automatically humble.
