Are you the type of a person who needs to have all of his or her i's dotted and t's crossed before taking any action?
Do you sometimes find yourself unable to start, even after you've done all the preparation and planning, because you're just afraid of not having things not turn out exactly perfect?
Well what if I told you that trying to make things perfect before you can start moving is stopping you from making major shifts in your life?
I've learned that there's an image in a perfectionist mind that he or she is trying to accomplish, and it is almost always rooted in making a good impression on OTHERS.
Or to say it differently, it is rooted in the FEAR of NOT making a good impression.
Perfectionists are essentially, afraid.
They are afraid that what they do won't be GOOD ENOUGH... so they keep extending the time to prepare and make everything "perfect".
But I've learned that the fear of something not being good enough almost always comes from the feeling that the PERSON isn't good enough.
And whatever we feel we're lacking on the INSIDE, we will try to create on the OUTSIDE.
Whatever we feel we lack on the INSIDE, we will try to make up for it on the OUTSIDE.
So a person who feels isn't GOOD ENOUGH... will always try to create things on the outside that are "good enough"...
Thus, becoming a perfectionist.
Perfectionism is a FABRICATION of our mind. It is actually something that doesn't exist, but we humans created it.
If you take a look, it DOES NOT exist in nature.
Mark Zuckerberg created this mantra around Facebook that states:
