Perfectionism is my personal beast.
In fact, last night as I was thinking about this newsletter, I laid in bed for a good hour thinking of which perfectionism story from my life I wanted to share to prove my point. Each story that came to mind I vetoed and thought “that one’s not good enough.”
So, point proven. Joke’s on me…again.
When I think of the obstacles that have stood in my way as I moved through my career, my business, my podcast, my own book that I’m working on–perfectionism and comparison can absolutely be blamed. Jerks.
And, I know I’m not the only one.
I was asked on a podcast recently (shout out to Dina Scippa of Enough Labs) what I wanted to unlearn this year. I’m not going to spoil her podcast episode, but I will say, I began to examine things that have held me back over the years–things and thoughts I was ready to Iet go of. I also discovered all of them were relatively self-imposed.
And not to say that self-imposed obstacles are less than–I actually find them to be much harder to navigate because they are rooted in deep story and emotion.
