If you’re a perfectionist, you probably attribute your achievements to your perfectionist ways. Don’t worry you don’t have to STOP being a perfectionist. Today you will learn to be a Healthy Perfectionist, an Optimalist, instead of a chronically stressed out Negative Perfectionist.
“Perfectionist reject reality and replace it with a fantasy world- a world in which there is no failure and no painful emotions and in which their standards for success, no matter how unrealistic, can actually be met. Optimalist accept reality- they accept that in the real world some failure and sorrow is inevitable and that success has to be measured against standards that are actually attainable.”
~ Tal Ben-Shahar from The Pursuit of Perfect
