Those who strive for perfection are leaders and high achievers, but when they push themselves too much, they tend to get into extremely toxic situations. Working hard to achieve something is great, however, when the frustration level is sky high and there is already chronic dissatisfaction and unhappiness in life, we need to start reaching for the pause button, clear the mind and self-reflect.
Overthinking, fear of failure and excessive worrying are very common in perfectionists. Negative thoughts and behaviours affect the quality of life. More damage is done when they get stuck in analysis paralysis, therefore, decision-making is stalled and no action is done.
Everyone commits mistakes. Problems and unexpected challenges come. The best way to handle them is not to run away and hide but to tackle them head-on. Instead of worrying about what’s going to happen when you do something, think about things that can actually go wrong when you don’t do anything at all. Or, better yet, get over your fears, and think about what can go right in any given situation. Take control and take action!
