I often get asked whether overcoming perfectionism will make a person less successful. When I first started out on my personal development journey, I thought it was my perfectionistic traits that had created my success. I remember feeling worried that if I was kinder to myself and I didn’t have crazy expectations, I wouldn’t get as much done.
What I know for sure is that it was my perfectionism that was actually stopping my success, rather than helping it. Although I could perform well under pressure, it was super stressful, I burned myself out all the time and I needed a deadline to get anything done. Not to mention I was constantly in all-or-nothing mode, terrified of judgement and always holding myself back.
In this episode, I share 7 differences between perfectionists and high achievers so you’ll feel willing to let go of perfectionism for good. I also give practical advice to help move you away from perfectionism and into being a high achiever. I hope you find it helpful!
