The Truth About Perfectionism

Perfectionism has a duality to it. The realization of this duality is the key to liberating ourselves from the shackles of chronic perfectionism.

Here’s the simple truth:

Perfection is unattainable in application. There will always (always) be another way to do something better, or more perfectly. “Perfect” as an attainable goal doesn’t exist.

Life is messy, strange, beautiful, wonderful, scary, and everything in between. In its own magnificent way, life is imperfect.

Accepting that life is imperfect in all its glory is freedom. And, once we accept that truth, we actually find that life feels pretty darn perfect, exactly as it is.

So, I ask you:

Are you an imperfect perfectionist? Or…

Would you like to be a perfect imperfectionist?

The choice is yours. 😉

 

Being is a Choice.

Be that. It’s a choice.

We’ve all heard about how we are human beings, not human doings. It’s true. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water.

“Doing” is about action, and action involves choice.

I once had a conversation with a client that went something like this:

Client: “I’m not an angry person, that’s not who I am. I don’t want to be angry; I want to be the kind, thoughtful, balanced person I know I am.”

Me: “Ok.”

Lots of questions, guidance, and discussion ensued until we came full circle back to the original statement.

Client: “I just want to be who I know myself to be.”

Me: “So, be that. It’s a choice.”

Client: “Wait.. Is it that simple?”

Me: “Sometimes, often, yes, it can be. It is.”

Being is a choice. When what you do is out of alignment with who you are, struggle ensues.

So, being is a choice.

You are a human BEING who DOES things in alignment with your being… or not. It’s a choice.

We all have emotions: anger, sorrow, frustration, joy, among so many others. The emotions will always show up. They’re always there. What we CHOOSE to DO about them is how we are choosing to show up and BE in the world.

So, be that. It’s your choice.

My NEW book – My FIRST book….it’s almost here!

It’s finally here! Well, almost. My first book

What If..?
How to Create the Life You Want
Using the Power of Possibility

is just back from my editor, and I am gearing up to publish it in the new year. I’m very excited to share my work with you, which is the culmination of years of study, exploration, and experience.

It’s a “how to” book that guides you through the most powerful process I’ve discovered to creating the life you desire, by employing simple easy-to-follow tools for manifesting and discovering your true self. I’ve been using it myself, and with my clients, and have already seen the positive results that come from engaging in this powerful process.

That being said, I’m now asking for your help to get it published and into the hands of those who could benefit from the work I’ve done in understanding how to create change that’s in alignment with who we are at our core.

I’ve created a fundraising page that gives you all the details you need to consider supporting this project. Check it out here or use the information below, and please consider helping me share my work with a wider audience. This is just the beginning of what we can do together.

As always, I’m super grateful for your support and encouragement. (Plus, I’ve set up a few “reward” categories for your donation.)

Thank you – from my heart, thank you.
