The Perfectionism Trap Doesn’t Have to Trip You Up Today, or Ever

Feeling Stuck

Expectations of perfection keep you stuck…

Perfectionism is definitely a trap. Parading as a worthy goal, it keeps you stuck and perpetually discouraged with yourself.

So, overcoming perfectionistic tendencies and altering perfectionistic choices helps to free you up to be your most creative and productive self.

Conversely, allowing perfectionism to hobble you and steal your energy and confidence leaves you endlessly spinning your tires.

Excellence vs. Perfection

Perfection is an illusion that creates harsh, self-critical expectations. It’s a trap that stops you in your tracks and stifles change.

Indeed, life is all about change and growth, and perfection is about stillness.  Here’s one way to look at the significant differences between the two:

Excellence is always evolving and changing.
You attain one level of excellence and then strive for the next. Each moment offers new opportunities for excellence. Doors are always opening as you learn and grow.

Perfection, on the other hand, is where you stop.
What could follow? There is something about perfection that is, at its core, inimical to the human condition. There are no more doors to open or explore. You might even say that perfection is a dead end.

And then there’s this…

Your inner critic thrives on the expectation of perfection.  This strangles and stifles your creativity because fear constricts the free flow of your energy and ideas.

In turn, this fuels your inner critic’s constant, unhelpful messages.  Indeed, the more that perfectionism affects your energy the less you are able to accomplish, enabling this debilitating cycle to perpetuate itself endlessly.

However, when you identify the ways that your self-talk (and the illusory beliefs that it springs from) hold you back, you are in a position to stop the cycle.

This helps…

Perfectionism eats up the energy and undermines the confidence of countless bright, energetic, and talented people. Are you one of them?
