There would be seldom anybody who doesn't feel the importance of fulfilment still it cannot save a career from being spoiled if you are not really sincere about it. All of a sudden, a theory of perfection occurred. Perfection is the safeguard of our existence. For instance, a child likes to play rather than being instructed to study because he/she may be unaware of its importance but his/her guardian knows it well. Although we know no one's perfect in the world how amazing it is that no one's can deny it. Lets face it, without perfection your existence is always at stake where you cannot take anything for granted. This is where comes the importance of "self realization" without which you are ignorant of yourself only. You may be very proud of your knowledge still the gist of knowledge is "self realization" without which your so called knowledge is so theoretical that it just cannot deliver you from your confusion. After all, self ignorance is the root cause of our misery. we are mostly influenced by praise and insult in the material state of existence . We are happy if praised and depressed if insulted which reveals our dependence for pleasure on others. Please remember, the world is an ocean of misery and if we can't get rid of such trifle things what is the hope of liberation? But as soon as we are in our real state of consciousness we discover that our greatness is never subject to others' opinion. We discover that our greatness is never dependent on material achievement which is an illusion but we've already achieved the realm of inconceivable truth.

SB 10.14.26 — The conception of material bondage and the conception of liberation are both manifestations of ignorance. Being outside the scope of true knowledge, they cease to exist when one correctly understands that the pure spirit soul is distinct from matter and always fully conscious. At that time bondage and liberation no longer have any significance, just as day and night have no significance from the perspective of the sun.
when one correctly understands that the pure spirit soul is distinct from matter and always fully conscious, liberation or material bondage have no significance, because of transcendental conscious.
what is significant for transcendentalist who realize that he isnt this material body ?
(aham brahman asmi)
day and night have no significance from the perspective of the sun, similar to that,
knowledge based on duality have no significance from the perspective of such kind of transcendentalist.
