Does your mind keep going over the same choices without resolution? 

Perhaps you’ve not analyzed pros and cons; perhaps you’ve over analyzed.

Perhaps you’re procrastinating – always based on fear (of failure, of being judged, of success, of being controlled).

Perhaps you’re in perfectionism mode and stuck.

Perhaps you need to figure out where-what your strengths are and what your personal power is before you can move forward with good choices.

Most successful people are less likely to be perfectionists as perfectionism impedes performance.  Facebook’s headquarters had “Done is better than perfect” painted on the wall. Imagine if Facebook had waited until it was “perfect” to launch. It probably wouldn’t be around today.

Perfectionism is often born of extra demanding parents or former schoolteachers.  While perfectionism is a “learned habit” it can be an “unlearned habit”.   Perfectionists spend more time than necessary on tasks that don’t require the extra care. One issue that perfectionists often run into is not understanding that all tasks don’t require the same amount of effort and time.  Consequently, they feel overwhelmed from not having enough time in the day.  When you’re so overwhelmed by work and anxiety, you can’t get anything done, and you become trapped in a loop of unhealthy thoughts, impulses, and behaviors.

A combination of coaching and EFTtapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques) can help you break the cycle and transform procrastination (often a product of perfectionism) too!!

"To get something done is an accomplishment.

To get something done right is an achievement.

Aim for success, not perfection!

The tragedy of life isn't not reaching your goals.

The tragedy lies in not having written goals to reach.

Behind every successful person are many failures.

Believe in unlimited potential.

There will never be a better time to begin than right now.

The first person who has to believe in you is you!

Failure is only an opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity."

Here is a wonderful quote from Leonard Cohen that was presented at a training I attended to become certified to teach anger management:

“Ring the bells that still can ring!
Forget your perfect offering!
There is a crack in  everything!
That’s how the light gets in!”

There is usually no need for perfection 🙂

Here’s a “take-away” from this training:  Ask yourself  “The Big Question” whenever you become angry:

“What do I need right now to make it OK and to be healthy.”

It’s the “right now” part that can stop someone from taking drastic anger steps- ie if the issue is a bad driver who cut you off you can simply change lanes and stay away from him instead of getting into a rage .

The same principle applies to a person who is really “annoying” on line at the store, at home, at the office, etc. Leave for a time out or change locations and “breathe” for stress release: inhale from your nose and longer exhale from mouth.
