When you are playing by a different set of rules, i.e., a lack of moral character, it is easy to sound more intelligent than you are.
Even though today, it appears most people don’t even want to strive for mediocrity, there is a group of us who are constantly driven to do and be more in life. We do not suffer from not doing enough, we suffer from pushing so hard to be perfect that we actually do more harm to ourselves than good.
The key is to realize achieving perfection is impossible, and that is ok. For most of us, driving towards perfection is us trying too hard to be what others expect us to be. Once you realize being imperfect is what gives you your uniqueness, it is much easier to live the life you want and NOT be a part of our widget-in-widget-out society today.
So walk to the beat of your own drum, but beat the shit out of it along the way! Just because you will never achieve perfection doesn’t mean you throw in the towel, it means you give it your all and let the chips fall where they may.
