I recently made a discovery about myself that apparently was crystal clear to everybody else in my life. I had never considered it myself, but the truth is that I am a perfectionist. So, I want to share my journey through this realization with all of you, just in case you can relate, and what I’m doing to address it.
Now, I always thought being a perfectionist was about striving to be the best all the time. However, unbeknownst to me until just last week, it also presents as looking at situations and even achievements in our lives and only really focusing on what’s missing. So, if this sounds like a familiar pattern in your own life, I want you to listen in closely.
Join me on the podcast this week to discover whether you might secretly be a perfectionist. I’m discussing the thoughts of not-enoughness I have experienced, where these might be showing up in your life, and how to refocus your brain so you can start truly appreciating and enjoying your achievements.
