Perfectionism is too often worn as a badge of honour – convincing you that you’re more valuable as someone that strives only to be perfect. 


Society’s obsession with perfectionism has convinced you that if it isn’t perfect, you shouldn’t share it with the world; inadvertently, this culture has created a perfectionism and procrastination cycle which has been silently holding you back. 


This cycle has created an internal sense of fear – Fear of being you, fear of judgment from others, fear of sharing your skills and talents with the world. So what do you do?
