We’re Born Perfect, and We Imperfect To Be Successful.

It is our ability to burn our perfection that makes us distinct, and we out-compete others because of its inherent evolution. Everyone is a black box, controlling input and experience drive an individual’s traits.

We burn our perfection — to dark and distinct.

Have you observed how beautiful and soft a baby appears? and if it grows up and potentially wants to become an athlete or scientist, it needs to burn itself through rigorous training — physically or cognitively, transforming itself into a completely new personality. Are we born of flaws, or do we lose out our perfectionism, think if everyone is born equal, same voice, same trait, what do we think the world would be?

Here is a famous quote from Yuval, we evolve to something….

“According to the science of biology, people were not ‘created’. They have evolved. And they certainly did not evolve to be ‘equal’. The idea of equality is inextricably intertwined with the idea of creation. The Americans got the idea of equality from Christianity, which argues that every person has a divinely created soul, and that all souls are equal before God. However, if we do not believe in the Christian myths about God, creation and souls, what does it mean that all people are ‘equal’? Evolution is based on difference, not on equality. Every person carries a somewhat different genetic code, and is exposed from birth to different environmental influences. This leads to the development of different qualities that carry with them different chances of survival. ‘Created equal’ should therefore be translated into ‘evolved differently’.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

How we live our lives and the experiences that we earn defines us. Everything that we see and do is what makes us isolated, two individuals looking at the same picture might have a unique interpretation — these unique traits make our human beings survive the robotic age.

We should celebrate our flaws rather than demeaning it getting into a rat race of perfectionism.

There may have been cases where people born out with disabilities, however, we may misconstrue it as flaws, however, in other aspects, a person as deaf may be as beautiful as a normal person.

Within cognitive science — the new field of study that focuses particularly on the mind — there has been a strong bias toward assuming that all individuals make use of the same basic mental processes.It is also conceivable that, in the end, scientists will find no striking differences betweeen the Charles Darwins and the James Smiths.- Extraordinary Minds: Howard E Gardner

Everyone is equal in terms of counts, however, it is the imprints that form makes us unique. These imprints are an outcome of our enduring responses to education, social and technological interactions.

Conclusion :

The main intent of this article is to highlight our dilemma and presumption that few people are born with reduced abilities as compared to others, and the same set of beliefs are reflected in every aspect of life. If we change our conception about it, we would be more blissful.

With this born perfect, gives a hope that running a race, competing with people is not something we’re born to accomplish, we would be quite satisfied with what we’ve — maintaining a status-quo is happiness.

As per stoicism philosophy, less is good, and with my added thoughts, no action is happiness.

Bliss is a perfect wealth and a yardstick for success, action or inaction, we should remain in joy and freedom.
