Stopped 6 seconds in…when i build & trend to my garden i try to get it as close as possible because if i put 80% in is not going to be as good as if i tried for that 100%

When i build a motor i want it perfect because if i give it 75% I’m going to have a sh*tty build opposed to going for perfection & having a awesome build

Same for my 80% builds, IM aiming for perfection…it has nothing to do with self love or lovable, i know what i want with my work.

Laughable if you need Instagram to tell you as a human whats appropriate

They acknowledged their failures tho. Thatís what helped them build. Most ppl crumble cause they canít handle the failure part

Most boxden dudes could reflect on their lives for a couple seconds before realizing she could pass for an Instagram hoe.... and then forget about whatever she was talking about.

I disagree.

There is a level where just about anything can be poisonous, and perfectionism is no exception, but, especially in competition, any sort of weakness can be used against you. It's a talent to identify your weaker areas and an even bigger gift, in my opinion, to have the drive to put in the work to strengthen those areas.

Being a perfectionist has really become a label that mediocre people hide behind instead of facing their fear of failure/ rejection. The people we've looked at as true perfectionist are/ were in a loop that included constant FEEDBACK.

This video seems to be describing a person that hasn't even figured out what truly matters to them and are listlessly following the path their parents/ society/ friend group put them on.

It's describing Ryan Leaf. Not Tom Brady.

“Your value in society isn’t linked to what you achieve.”

A pretty woman actually said that bullsh*t wit a straight face...

...men got it different.

I strive to be the best...

...undefeated? Invincible? Hell nah...

...but every loss is a lesson.

Most self proclaimed "perfectionist" are just procrastinators from what I've experienced. Nobody is perfect, nothing is perfect. To claim to strive for "perfection" always seemed hella egotistical and narcissistic to me.

Usually perfectionist are artists! They say that the record label had to come and physically take LOW END THEORY out of q-tip’s hands because he wanted perfection! There’s a saying “an artist painting is never done “. Remember, GOOD IS THE ENEMY OF GREATNESS!!!

there are approximately 22,000 flights per day

if 99.9% land safely, but 0.1% of flights crash, that's 22 plane crashes every single day, at an average of 100 people per flight, that's 2,200 dead people every day and 803,000 dead every year

would you rather have your loved ones on a low self-esteem perfection flight or a flight controlled by indignant arrogance?

or how about houses, buildings and bridges? can we cut corners and settle for mediocrity on those too?

when buying a house, would you like to be told that the builders, plumbers and electricians were anti-perfection because they had high self esteem?

this is just some sh*t that people who fu*k up all the time invented to raise their self-esteem and mask their inherent mediocrity

Yeah but basketball and the pursuit of rings gave them a path that allowed them to thrive from their mental illness. Without the sport they'd have been murderers, rapists or worse.

So, does that mean people who aren't perfectionists don't have low self-esteem?

I mean, having insecurities is pretty damn human. It stands to reason that some insecure humans will be perfectionists, but not all insecure humans are perfectionists.

I am incredible self-confident in ways, and very insecure in ways. Human nature can be complicated like that.

people sh*t one almost everything now-a-days...it's more acceptable to be a fat lazy slob, mostly because people do not want to offend the slob, than to be a perfectionist
