Several months ago I read an article HERE which told me I was suffering from PERFECTIONISM.
It's a label I am familiar with.. But this particular article suggested this trait might inhibit my ability to progress in life.
It's somewhat ironic, because in a professional sense, perfectionism is applauded.
Attention to Detail - Check
Ability to adhere to deadlines - Check
But on a personal level, it can be debilitating.
According to the article, I "stay stuck because you keep telling yourself that you have to wait until things are perfect before you move forward."
Hmm... a heavy concept.
But likely true.
So what's this perfectionist girl to do?!
Apparently, I need to "identify the area(s) in my life where I stay stuck because I keep telling myself that you have to wait until things are perfect before you move forward."
The concept of perfectionism, is just one of many traits which I have come to believe define me.
Without perfectionism - Who am I?!
But recently, I have come to question - Why am I letting something which has the ability to paralyse me play such an integral role in my life?
I can be 'me' anyway I choose.
And I am so much more than this one trait.
Which is why this poster has struck such a chord with me -
I think I need it.
