Reset to Amazing: Pause For Progress Over Perfection

What is your takeaway from this Team RLEI Reset Program to Live Amazing 100 Day period? Did you meet your initial goal or goals? Did you create new goals along the way? Did you discover something about yourself you didn’t know before? Do you feel better? Do you feel amazing? “We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path. Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by wind… there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey. I find parallels in nature to be a beautiful reflection of grand orchestration. One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed in the same direction. We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered… we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey. I’m not perfect for your journey and you’re not perfect for my journey, but I’m perfect for my journey and you’re perfect for your journey. We’re heading to the same place, we’re taking different routes, but we’re both exactly perfect the way we are. Think of what understanding this great orchestration could mean for relationships. Imagine interacting with others knowing that they too each share this parallel with the snowflake. Like you, they are headed to the same place and no matter what they may appear like to you, they have taken the perfect form for their journey. How strong our relationships would be if we could see and respect that we are all perfectly imperfect for our journey.” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free There is no singular definition of perfection, there is only progress for all of us. If you moved forward at all, made even one tiny step in the direction of your dreams, then you have been successful in this portion of your journey so far. If you learned even one small thing that will assist you as you continue on, then you have been successful. If you feel even a little better, a little healthier, than you have been successful. The best part of a 100 day reset program is that it resets every 100 days. From whatever successful point you end now, you can begin again and again and again. Here’s to all the progress you have made so far and to all the further successes to come! Forward, ho.
