What if you could listen in to a coaching session where someone is being coached on their relationship to perfectionism? You’d be all over it, right? Well, you’re in luck, my friend. In this coaching episode, I work with a lovely and highly accomplished woman, Ify, on her struggle of constantly putting things off until they can be “perfect” and how that has been seriously arresting some big goals and dreams.
When I asked how perfectionism was showing up in her life, here is what she shared with me:
Perfectionism has been the reoccurring thorn in my spine since I was a little girl. I always struggle with this idea that everything I do, every work I put out has to have the look or the illusion of perfection. What I’ve found is that this leads to failure to launch. I always get to the very brink, then I experience analysis paralysis. It’s put my whole life on this giant pause, still waiting. On the exterior, I can give the impression that I’m bold, and I have it all figured out but internally I’m second-guessing every little decision.
We look at the influence of her highly accomplished parents and how her father’s voice has turned into her inner voice, the constant pull to edit, and edit, and redo and redo, and how she is highly attached to the opinions of everyone else. Creep our session, have a pen and paper handy and get ready to steal Ify’s homework for yourself.
This pod explores:
