You’re Not a Perfectionist… but you are THIS

Are you a Self-Identified Perfectionist?

Do you consider yourself to be a perfectionist? If so, you aren’t alone. So many of us let perfectionism control our every move, from how we go about our day to the work we put out into the world.

After all, there are people who are paying attention to what we’re doing. They’re watching our every move… in “real” life and also on all of our social media feeds.

And that’s why we can’t resist making sure that every last detail is exactly as perfect as it should be before we share, well… anything.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an artist, a coach, or whatever your chosen profession may be, if you’re a perfectionist, you may be holding yourself back from your true potential without even realizing it.

Here’s the funny little thing about perfectionism.

It’s an excuse.

It’s a way for you to not have to do the thing that you know you’re called to do, or put the thing out that you know you’re called to put out.

Perfection Protects You

Perfectionism is protection. Think of it as a shield. As soon as you have to put something out there that you’ve been working on, that shield comes down and you’re no longer protected.

It becomes real and raw because it’s “out there.”

And when you’re no longer protected, you’ll have to finally hear…

…What people say.

…What people think.

…And whether or not what they say and think stacks up to what you envisioned in your head.
