Divine Flaw with Stacey Sargent
Articles


[BLANK_AUDIO] For me, fine is, total fail. In my mind. Devastated, I was so upset. And I’m working with my Professor Pam
Johnson, who was the, coined the term, I think she coined the term divine flaw. And she said why is this, you know, Stacy,
you got a passing grade. I’m like, yeah, I know. I know. I got a passing grade. But I’m just like, I’m a mess. So she works with me, coaches me, why is it important to have been
completely successful at it? Why is that so important? And this is the conversation over time. And what it came down to was, just, I just
know that, actually it was revealing to me and I originally started saying diversity
is so important to the inclusion. Well, what about inclusion is important to
you? And the realization was back to my values, belonging. There are many times in my life when I did
not belong and I felt so completely on the outside. And I have a passion for wanting people to
feel acknowledged, seen and a, an important person, a
belonging. I want that. It’s, it’s so entrenched inside of me that
I, I just worked my butt off to try to get
that across in the facilitation. And she said right, this is your divine
flaw. In tragic, in literature, tragic flaw is something about the character leads
ultimately to their downfall, right? That’s literature. Who wants a tragic flaw? I don’t want a tragic flaw. She said this is the divine flaw. Your flaw is that you care so much about
it that you will overwork it. You will perfectionist it to death. But that’s also what’s divine about you. She said, I can help you get rid of the
perfectionism. How? Sign me up. Don’t care so much about that. [BLANK_AUDIO] I can’t make that deal. What I can do now though, is when I’m
having inner critic moments, when I’m at the beck and call of my worst
inner critics, what I can do is try to figure out what’s
important underneath. What is going on? What’s the divinity inside of me that is
pushing me that hard? That’s for me the, the infinity symbol
that I have on my book, that I have tattooed on my arm. Inner success, inner critic, inner
success, divinity, flaw. It’s just where I’m channeling the energy. Am I using it for the super powers of evil
to beat myself up? Or can I see the good in the inner critic
and just shift my view? So divine flaw has been for me one of the
tools. Different people like different tools. But if I can get underneath my inner
critic and figure out what the value, the belief this, this strength, the passion is, then I let
myself off the hook a little more often.
