Being Perfect

Being perfect and trying to be perfect. Some of the most successful people I have read about and met, have been able to be humble, tell it like it is, move on and start again. I've noticed that some of the most popular folks are loved because they can admit their mistakes, foibles and shortcomings. I have also seen many who hold onto these mistakes as their flagship, identifying them as an identity. I have been investigating all of the above. Do you have any comments to share?
