Lumaslim Review

by Jency William (2019-04-26)

Perfectionism is a pipe dream that Lumaslim none of us will ever achieve. That doesn't mean you can't do your best. But expecting yourself to be PERFECT and not make mistakes dooms you to disappointment. Worse, it is likely to keep you from making decisions, taking chances and living your life to the fullest. Mistakes are not only an inevitable part of learning, but they can allow us to take the positive learning from those mistakes and integrate them in a powerful way into our lives. I've noticed that the things I've learned best have come from making mistakes. The things that I've learned easily and "got right" the first time haven't had the impact on me, and often their lessons have not been lasting. But when you make a big mistake about something, you may discover that the things you learn from it are a gift that keeps on giving! I once saw a t-shirt that said "Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment." How true! I finally realized that struggling to "be perfect" (and believe me, it is a struggle) wasn't particularly helpful to me. While I don't go out and make mistakes deliberately, I now look at mistakes much differently. Instead of beating myself up about them, I have learned to accept them as a valuable tool. I don't sit and wallow in guilt about them, or allow myself much time to feel bad about them. Instead, I look for the positive lesson in the experience--what have I learned--so that I don't have to make that mistake again.
