“Perfection is the grand lie.”
-Brendon Burchard, American Motivational Author
Virtually everyone I meet who is exploring a coaching relationship wants to change their lives for the better.
Many experience a fair amount of upsets in their worlds, due to unfulfilled expectations of themselves, and others.
The “Grand Lie” of perfectionism is often a significant culprit for feelings of inadequacy and unhappiness.
An alternate approach – which I have found effective and freeing – is to replace perfectionism with the pursuit of progress, so that when the day is done, what you get done is what you get done.
Where is the Grand Lie of Perfectionism preventing you from the fulfilling and satisfying life you desire? Where would the pursuit of excellence and ongoing progress serve you far better?
