The end of perfectionism

Last updated on April 28, 2020

Let’s come together and heal ๐Ÿ™‚

Nobody’s perfect. We all need support.

And we all know this too.

The Beatles would say “We all need a lil’ help from our friends.”

Yet despite knowing all too well about our imperfections…

Oftentimes we hold ourselves to the highest standards and end up self-sabotaging!!

So let’s talk about perfectionism.

  • Where does perfectionism stem from?
  • What are the pro’s and con’s of perfectionism?
  • What practical steps can we take in place of perfectionism?

I bring this topic up because a major conversation topic last week at our weekly group meeting was perfectionism.

I’ll paraphrase here, but someone spoke up and bravely said:

“I quit everything I start. I try stuff and then when I fail, I beat myself up. Now I don’t try anything anymore because I know that I’ll fail before I even start.”

We continued the discussion by exploring:

  • How perfectionism sabotages progress
    • For example, you might do some small positive action but then belittle yourself for not doing more.
  • Self-criticism makes the process of growth miserable
    • If you beat yourself after making progress, you feel bad. If you feel bad, you don’t want to continue.
  • Important keys to beating perfectionism:
    • Set small steps that count as success. Think really small steps! Like walking for 3 minutes a day
    • Make these small steps feel good and don’t beat yourself up afterwards!!

So anyways,ย this week is going to be about perfectionism.

Because this is a problem I hear about all the time!!!

Just know that you aren’t alone …

In fact, I am starting a private facebook group for this very purpose.

My intention is to provide a safe place online for people to hangout and support each other.

You can join the facebook group here.

Oh and more thing since you made it all the way down here!

Since you're genuinely motivated to learn and grow I wanted to share with you a FREE Masterclass Series.

It's simply me interviewing a client asking her every question imaginable under the sun. 

This particular client had stopped binge eating after 44 years of struggle, and continued her eating freedom even after getting diagnosed with cancer. 

In this FREE Masterclass you can see behind the scenes and get a real sense for what Eating Enlightenment is all about.
