Balanced & Free Mom Boss Podcast

Oct 20, 2020

In this episode, I will talk about perfectionism and why it is not always necessarily a good thing. Essentially perfectionism is a sign that we’re afraid to mess up or be rejected. Without awareness, perfectionism could impact our ability to create and maintain balance. Paying too much attention to getting things right often gives us tunnel vision. We focus too much on getting things done the way we wanted that we tend to shut ourselves out from the people and things that are around us. Perfectionists tend to over-plan, doubt, and worry about things that are not even created yet. This can throw our mental and emotional balance off. That said, wanting good results and the desire to be good at something is perfectly normal. We just need a conscious effort to keep our perfectionist tendencies in check.


Join me in this episode of the Balanced and Free Mom Boss for an insightful chat about perfectionism and failure and how it can affect our mental and emotional balance.


Key Points:


Perfection is not a realistic standard.  And, forcing that standard on ourselves can take a toll on our mental and emotional balance.


Perfectionism is essentially a fear of failure and rejection. Sometimes we just have to let go and roll with the punches and allow ourselves to be human.


Failure and rejection are only opinions. It can only hurt us if we frame it into something hurtful. Think about famous inventors, they look at failure as data or feedback on getting closer to their goals.
