That sounds pretty close to my current method of self-motivation, so I'm using your quote as part of my answer. I want to become perfect according to my current ideals, and at each step, having reached my goals, to use my improved awareness to develop a new concept of perfection so that I can reach further for the next ideal. It is part of who I am, as an INFP, to seek internal balance. Right now, my main goals are to perfect my compassion, and to become strong enough to empathize, even with people who are opposed to my values, without fear or hatred. It's going to take a lot of work, but I feel that the meaning of life is to seek the perfection of these spiritual qualities.
