The thing is that the fact that you don’t think you’re perfect enough to be a perfectionist is a sign of your perfectionism.

For a perfectionist nothing is rarely ever good enough.

Unfortunately that can mean that you never feel that you’re good enough.

Being a perfectionist means you perceive a gap in your life between how things are and how you think that things should be.

It can be something that affects how you feel about yourself in every moment.

It can affect everything you do, how you feel and what you believe is possible for you.

It can affect how you feel about your work.

It can affect how you feel about how you look.

It can affect how you feel about your home.

It can affect how you feel about yourself as a parent or partner.

It can affect how you feel about your potential as a leader.

You perceive the gap between your reality and your dreams and you think it you just try harder that that will make all the difference.

So you try harder and you work longer and you tell yourself that you’re at fault, that you’re doing something wrong.

Then you compare yourself to others and you feel that just as you’re getting things wrong, they seem to be getting things right without even trying.

More pressure, more endless trying, more perfectionism.

It can become a never ending cycle that takes you away from resting, playing, having fun, enjoying your creativity, connecting with others and doing work that lights up your soul.

What if you could move away from the endless perfectionistic try hard treadmill?

What if you could have more calm, confidence and creativity in your life?

What fun could you have if you took the pressure off?

What if you were able to be deeply connected to your intuition/inner guidance and could use the fact that you were able to follow that as your measure of success?

What would it be like to achieve better results through getting into a state of creative flow that you were able to access by being LESS hard on yourself?

What would it be like to have a life that you loved that loved you right back?
