Goldie Hawn: Why You Shouldn't Worry About Being 'Perfect'

Life Is Never Going To Be Faultless

We do it in our jobs, as parents, in terms of how we look, what we know, own etc -  but what does that do to us? Is that healthy? In this video, actress Goldie Hawn describes how learning to let go of trying to confine herself within such a narrow concept, helped her to live more freely and to dance to her own tune.

Having been quite a shy kid growing up, there's nothing more moving to me now than seeing someone start to realise their real potential and believe in themselves a bit more... It's one of the best feelings ever! For me, Legends help us all to see more of what's possible and start to aim that little bit higher in life. It's so important to have fun and enjoy ourselves along the way too... Have fun, never stop learning and share as much as you can with others
