I’m confident that you have struggled with trying to be perfect at some point in your life. It’s a common thing that we do. Sometimes, we aren’t even aware that we’re doing it. As humans, it’s in our nature to want to do our best. That’s completely normal. But the dangers come in when we place unrealistic expectations on ourselves to be perfect.

I’ve been dealing with perfectionism for most of my life. It wasn’t until recently that I became aware of how it was affecting me. Once I was aware, I got intentional about making changes in my life to overcome my perfectionist tendencies.

In this episode, I help you understand what perfectionism is, what it isn’t, five dangers of being a perfectionist, and how you can also overcome it.

As with anything, it takes time for you to change. The first step is becoming aware. Then you can take the necessary steps to make a change for the better. I’m still working on it, but I’m much better than I used to be.

I hope that you hear something that resonates with you. I invite you to listen with an open mind and heart, so you can receive what you need in your life.
