Am I A Perfectionist?

Wow, we’ve made it to day 22 of the New You in 31 Days Challenge! Personally, I haven’t been perfect in achieving my goals, but I wasn’t going for perfect…just improved. I hope you feel the same way about your new endeavors. Trying to be perfect doesn’t really help you to change, it merely encourages self-criticism and the feelings of failure when you don’t hit 100%. Like that beautiful flower in the feature photo, you can not achieve any greater perfection than you already posses at this moment.

I mean, really…have you ever looked at a lovely spring blossom and thought, “Gee, I wish that flower was prettier or more perfect.” I didn’t think so…how about we don’t do that when we look at ourselves or the things we’ve accomplished or haven’t accomplished. Today is a great day to talk about perfectionism and how it can actually harm you while on a self-improvement journey. I’ve compiled the best articles from the archives on the topic. Please let us know how you are doing with your most recent goals and dreams. Commenting on the posts you love is a wonderful way to be heard and to even make new connections with others.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

The fact is, though, our potential is far greater than most of us are willing to believe. Fortunately, there is a way to measure your state of being and whether you are moving in a positive direction. If you continue to learn and grow and make quality decisions that make you happy, I believe you are moving toward full potential.
