Your Flaws are what make you Perfect

Peacock feathers
“Like a peacock,
your beauty is multiplied
when you spread your wings
and show the world your stuff!
Don’t be afraid to be who you are –
each peacock feather is flawed and imperfect,
but collectively they create something of great beauty.
Your flaws are what make you perfect!”

In case you missed this newsletter previously, I wanted to share these inspirational quotes with you….  There is such wisdom in the words from these people who have become household names.
Steve Jobs “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
– Steve Jobs
Oprah Winfrey “What I know is, if you do work that you love, and work that fulfils you, the rest will come. I truly believe the reason I’ve been so financially successful is because my focus has never been on the money.”
Oprah Winfrey
Donald Trump “You have to love what you do. Without passion, great success is hard to come by. An entrepreneur will have tough times if he or she isn’t passionate about what they’re doing. People who love what they’re doing don’t give up. It’s never even a consideration. It’s a pretty simple formula.”
Donald Trump
Wayne Dyer “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focussed on giving of myself and everything that arrived in my life, then I was prosperous.”
Wayne Dyer
As you will see, these successful people seem to have a few things in common….
Passion….  a sense of purpose….  doing what they love…..  following their own inner voice….
And, taking on board the peacock quote above, each of them has chosen to express who they are in the world…. 
They’ve had the courage to strut their stuff…  despite their flaws….
So what does your inner voice call you to do….  as an authentic expression of yourself… and your own talents…    
Do you feel “flawed” in some way, and hold back from dancing to the beat of your own drum?
Could there possibly be amazing gifts and beauty within your own flaws?
This is actually a theme of my work… i.e. to join the dots between the area of your vulnerability and how to find the power within that, as part of your service to humanity.
If this is a topic you’d like to explore further, in either a one-to-one “Ignite Your Passion” Consultation, or via my “Life Your True Calling” Program, then I invite you to follow the links to my services on this website.   There is also a Home-Study option.
And if you’d like to discuss any of the above with me personally, please feel free to call me on (61-7) 5455 4550 or email
“People are crying up the rich and variegated plumage of the peacock,
and he himself is blushing at the sight of his ugly feet”
