I heard this from @garyvee in one of his videos, tried to find it but couldn’t.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about it a lot since I first heard it and for me it has really been true. Instead of reaching out for help or admitting that I’m insecure about something, I instead try to do things perfectly and really try to solve things on my own. I’ve done it because I’ve been to afraid of the shame of telling someone that I’m insecure. Sometimes afraid of failing and sometimes afraid of what others might think.
Do you have someone close to you that you can see tendencies of a perfectionist in? If you have any and are saying things like: ”Stop being such a perfectionist” or ”Just let it go, stop overdoing it.”, try asking why the person thinks s/he needs to do things perfectly. I know I would’ve needed someone to plant that seed in my mind many times.
