The Barrier of Denial


Tessa loved to draw and never pursued her passion for art. In retirement, she started painting, scared to share her work with others. She trusted only her son, Adrian. Holding a piece of her art, she said, ” What do you think?  I think it could be better, this didn’t capture the tree properly.”

Adrian thought the picture was beautiful, not knowing what his mother expected. “I think it’s beautiful as is.”

When Tessa started to argue the imperfections, Adrian said, “Mom, the greatest barrier to someone achieving their potential is their denial of it. There’s no perfection, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”

 

Inspired by “The greatest barrier to someone achieving their potential is their denial of it.” -Simon Travaglia
