There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections …

Dealing With ‘Imperfections’
Many a time, in our lives, we come across statements pointing fingers on us, and that too from the people we numbered the last if we were to list the people we thought of being criticized from.
But no matter what, even if they say, ‘You can’t do this, You can’t do that,’ don’t believe them. And, do it anyway. The thing you, on all occasions, have craved to do. Follow the desire of your heart. Follow your heart.
And If They Argue, Then?
You step out of the argument.
Don’t argue for too long. Just respect their words, and wait for your turn. Your turn for your words to be respected. Your turn to prove them wrong, without the use of any of the sword, the pen or the tongue.
Be your own definition of yourself. Let others not define what you ought to be.
Even if it’s being imperfect as per their definitions, be your own kind of perfect.
Carry your imprints along. And be honest to yourself, while following your desire. And I guarantee, it will lead you to a place, where the ones who were in the way will ‘Aspire to Aspire’.
Don’t be distracted by criticism. Remember–the only taste of success some people get is to take a bite out of you.”
