Perfectionism; A Psychological Prison

With the new year coming I wanted to share a book I read. Sometimes we can have an "All or Nothing" mentality that we actually sabotage our own efforts. So this new year - let's focus on the journey and not the destination.

Psychological prison:   

  • Fear of failing
  • Obsessed with the destination and outcome
  • All the way or nothing at all
  • Thinking that the world is not Fluid and changing all the time (50’s motherhood)
  • Not enjoying nor appreciating, and missing the magic MOMENTS
  • Avoiding pain by procrastinating
  • Imposing perfection on myself
  • Not looking at things in the light of ETERNITY
  • Not accepting reality  - there are only 24 hours in a day

Below I added a video from Brian Johnson from Philosophers Notes that gives you a quick synopsis of the book.
