I know this is what society is asking to you, especially as a woman in mid life, but listen here.
Perfectionism is externally driven, it’s you asking to yourself: what people think??? It’s driven but the fear to fail
Perfectionism kill curiosity: we have to know everything or we can look less than…
If you fail as a perfectionist, you see failure as a personal defect. Perfectionism don’t make you better. But progression? Yes!
Progression is internally driven, it’s yourself trying to do the best with what you have in this right moment. The high performers are progression focused: they know they can fail, it’s part of the process, to do better and be better.
Let yourself be you✨
