One of the biggest challenges for perfectionists is the lack of trust in their skills…
Lack of trust in skills is the reason perfectionists tend to under perform in competition–compared to practice.
Perfectionism leads to:
–Over thinking –Stuck in a practice mindset –Worry about what others think –Outcome and aftermath thinking –Anxiety, tentative play, and indecision
All of these prevent the perfectionist from performing with trust in competition–and you can see it on their face or in the performance.
