Episode 167: Why I Ditched Perfect and so Should You
Show Notes

Hello there! Today is a new episode of Female Empowered and I will talk about why I ditched perfectionism and so should you. I decided to throw this episode down early on this January 2023 because many people that I associate with in business and in life are all about perfectionism.

When I Ditched Perfectionism

I started to commit to ditching perfectionism in 2022. And this 2023, one of my missions was to get as many people on board with the ditching perfectionism train as possible.

Listen to this podcast as I give you tips on how to actually ditch the perfectionism mindset!

Let’s start discussing:      

  • When and why I ditched perfectionism
  • I noticed my perfectionism wasn’t just about maintaining high standards
  • Being rewarded by being perfect 
  • Where is perfectionism coming from
  • Playing it safe before being more comfortable with who I am
  • Two things you need to hear right now when you feel the need to be perfect
  • Perfectionism is holding you back from being the best version of yourself
  • Staying in your comfort zone stifles you
  • Done is good enough, it’s better than perfect
  • Perfectionism is the thief of progress
  • Striving for high standards is different from perfectionism
  • Perfectionism pushes away and pressures your family and friends
  • Perfectionism is a disservice to clients and the community
  • Perfectionism is procrastination in disguise

If this resonates with you, I am going to challenge you. Every time you are holding back from putting something out there in your business, I challenge you to think, “Is this me afraid of being judged?” Let’s commit to each other that we are going to ditch perfectionism and procrastination so we can work together to have a greater impact in our communities.
