Perfectionism is More About “Them”


We should all work hard to tolerate mistakes. Mistakes are the best teachers....if we are listening.

Perfectionism is overrated. It is a set up. Don't you think?

Perfectionism is more than just trying to get things right. It is other-focused and concentrates on what other people will think.

Why should we care?

What if we got self-focused and tolerated mistakes? If we did that then the question would more likely be, "What do I need to do to improve, to learn from my mistakes, and grow?"

Tolerating your own mistakes is a gift to ourselves. With that gift we can actually forgive ourselves and grow...daily.

There is really no better gift.
