When we are active in an addiction, we can feel like there is no one else in the whole world like us. “Alcoholics are screw ups and losers,” we tell ourselves, “whereas I seemed to have developed this drinking problem in spite of doing everything else in my life to a high level of excellence. I am the most unlikely alcoholic ever.” In fact, alcoholics share many common personality traits, and surprisingly that includes perfectionism. On this episode we discuss the various ways perfectionism can manifest in our lives, why it is so common to those who struggle with addiction, and some suggestions for easing perfectionist ways.
The prototypical perfectionist is someone who will go to great (and often unhealthy) lengths to avoid being average or mediocre, and who takes on a "no pain, no gain" mentality in their pursuit of greatness. Although perfectionists aren't necessarily high achievers, perfectionism is frequently tied to workaholism

Being a perfectionist isn't what you think it is. Perfectionism sounds like you are perfect when in fact you are addicted to behaviors that drive you to ignore what is really important.
What is really important is learning, growing, and creating!
Growing up we all learned that learning required stepping into an unfamiliar space. This requires you to put down your armor, roll up your sleeves and get messy...exposed...vulnerable.

Perfectionist are idealistic in that they frequently think about how things "should" be, not how they really are. Perfectionism causes one to set impossibly high goal which leads to discouragement, failure, and ultimately quitting. This thinking and belief of being product-minded believing contentment, happiness, and a sense of accomplishment are not permissible until their current project or activity has been completed.
Do you feel you have to be the best at what you do. Do you equate your worth with your performance?
Listen as we discuss what can be done to help perfectionism.
