Excellent or perfect? It’s up to you.

Is it excellent or perfect?

What you think about this question, and where you draw the line, makes a huge difference in your life.

Maybe you are wondering, today, whether your desire for excellence is healthy or something that steals your time and peace of mind.

Here are some considerations to help you explore what perfectionism actually feels like.  

Opening to these time-saving tips will help you see whether perfectionism is an issue for you.

Excellent or Perfect? You be the judge…

So, if perfectionism has infected your pursuit of excellence, you may notice things like the following:

  • Maybe you hide behind a rigid smile or a fixed grin. You are looking a part when in reality you are expressing stress rather than happiness or self-confidence.
  • You relate to people and situations reactively instead of responsively.  While trying to second-guess others’ needs and desires you spend much less time defining and responding to your own needs. This adds to your stress and is very depleting.
  • Balance is almost impossible to achieve in your life.  You work non-stop and constantly feel that nothing you do will ever be enough. You are constantly sacrificing the possibility of excellence for the illusion of perfection.

Here are more tell-tale signs to watch for…

  • Anger and disappointment come to dominate your emotional landscape.  This is because you have sacrificed your autonomy.
  • Conflicts arise, especially in your key relationships.  When you over-extend yourself trying to satisfy and control others, you are ultimately going to be disappointed.  You may then revert to punishing behavior.  This fosters discord.
  • You might even feel paralyzed.  Your productivity comes to a screeching halt as anxiety over possible mistakes saps your incentive to explore and expand your horizons.

Excellent or Perfect?  Validation Empowers You.

Seeing and acknowledging your perfectionistic tendencies can be overwhelming, but don’t let it be.

It’s so positive that you now can identify the role of perfectionism in your life, so be sure to validate yourself. You’ve taken a powerful step and are becoming more self-referenced.  

So continue the journey and don’t look back.  Your ongoing work will help you enjoy new levels of effectiveness with a welcome sense of ease.
