Practice Makes You Better Not Perfect


The old adage “practice makes perfect” has been applied to many kinds of learning. You keep practicing every day and every minute, yet you are not close to perfection. You discover you still lacking in some areas, but you discover you are getting better than before. Why is that? It’s because you can never be perfect at anything, you will always be able to get better. No matter how much you try to do it, practice will never make you perfect. But it will make you better.

This question has been a subject of so many debate among expects. While some feels practice makes perfect; others believe practice makes you better not perfect. Well I believe no human being on earth can ever be perfect, no matter how hard you try. We will always make mistakes. What makes us different from others who don’t practice is the ability to learn from our mistakes and move forward.

The hunger and determination for the need to improve and get better, that’s what keeps you on a higher level. How many times have you heard the phrase “practice makes perfect”? Growing up, I heard that a lot.  No matter how much practice I put into my work, I discover am far from been perfect. But one thing is for sure, am always better than before. I believe there no such thing as been perfect, but there is always a room for improvement.  You can only just keep getting better, which is what you should strive to be doing.

Do you even understand what it means to be perfect? To be perfect; it means you have to be perfectly complete and without defect and blemish. So you tell me, Are you perfectly complete and without defect or blemish? Or how long can one practice to be perfect? Well I will leave you to answer that. Even the most successful men and women in the world can’t tell me they are perfect at what they do.

The day anybody tells me they are perfect without defect and blemish, it’s simply means they no longer need to learn, practice or work hard anymore. It means such a person now knows it all. Many people get taught and believe that just practicing will make them perfect at what they are trying to do, the problem with this is that many other factors are involved in improving; these factors include knowledge, understanding of where you need to improve and goals of what you want to achieve.

A good example of this can be found in all sports, take soccer/football for example; the players are required to practice and train week in, week out in other to improve and stay very sharp. And because of that they try to get better and better every day. Now if a player now says “hey, I am now perfect at what I do.” It simply means he doesn’t need to train and practice anymore. It means he is now a complete player without any defect or blemish. Its funny isn’t it? Even the best player in the world still train everyday not because it will make him perfect but better.

After much practice and hard work we put into our various fields, it will only make us better and there is always room for improvement. Also take note that you can’t discover your abilities and improve your skills in an environment where you are not allowed to make mistakes. Improvement always requires some degree of failure. You must seek a practice area where experimentation and exploration are allowed.  That’s the only way to get better.

And when you begin to see positive realities, please don’t think that it’s time to stop practicing. You never arrive at your potential. You can only continue to keep getting better and better. Just keep it going!
