Perfection is a dead end. It's a fear based behaviour.

Does the pursuit of perfection hinder performance?

YES it does!

I'm a 2x Olympian and Mental Toughness Coach and many of my clients are perfectionists. And they take pride in that.

But here's the problem:

  • Perfectionists are full of negative self-talk.

  • Perfectionists can't take a compliment.

Performance is hindered:

  • They won't take risks or put themselves out there because when they fail or it doesn't work out, they beat themselves up for days.

  • Better to play it safe and do what they are already good at to avoid judgement from others and themselves.

  • They deflect praise of any kind because perfection is built around never being good enough.

  • Better to remind themselves and others how imperfect they are to avoid the possibility of actually being good enough.

Perfection is a fear based behaviour.

Until you face your fear, your Greatest Self will always hide.
