Episode 33: Perfectionism, Mediocrity, & Human Potential

podcast Oct 16, 2019

Perhaps you’ve moved past perfectionism but did you know that there are other levels of perfectionism that still might be holding you back?

I see this time and time again in high level performers who, intellectually, understands that perfection doesn’t exist, and yet they still hold themselves to their own individual standard or expectation of how their life should look like. In other words, perfectionism.

In this episode I’m going to teach how any level of perfectionism is truly just a mental construct that we hold ourselves prisoners to, and how essentially we end up living a mediocre life.

Learn why it’s critically important why we need to identify every level of perfectionism so that we can go about our business in discovering our true human potential.
