    Perfectionism: A Flawless Performance Part II

    in Spirituality

    Psychology Today makes an interesting statement, "For perfectionists, life is an endless report card on accomplishments or looks.  It is a fast track to unhappiness... What makes perfectionism so toxic is that while those in its grip desire success, they are most focused on avoiding failure..." 

    On our last show we began to discover the signs, symptoms, strengths and weaknesses of perfectionism.  We discussed the importance of examining the positive and negative aspects of perfectionism, identifying the areas of weakness, and bringing our challenges to God in order to better move towards living a life free from the strains of performance.  

    On this show we will pick up right where we left off to continue our journey to a happier, healthy, and balanced life in Christ.

    Better than Perfect: 7 Strategies to Crush Your Inner Critic and Create a Life You Love by Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo

    With the ultimate goal of helping readers achieve happiness and prosperity without the stress of making sure things are “perfect,” Better than Perfect is a fundamental guide for all perfectionists seeking new, fulfilled, and empowered lives.

    Elizabeth started her professional career as a Physical Therapist after getting her Master’s degree at Duke University. In her quest to help people actualize their dreams, Elizabeth went back to school to get her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. Wanting to help people “before they need a couch,” Elizabeth now coaches, consults, and speaks to groups about how to achieve their desired results.

    in Religion

    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


    Demonic means indwelled with a spirit or mental disposition that
    gives you a higher IQ or intellectual capacity. What makes you demonic is REPETITION; DISSATISFACTION AND PERFECTIONISM.

    Lessons from Mom: Perfection vs. Excellence with Sarah Zink

    in Women

    Perfectionism can sabotage and stall you by distracting form the purpose of your efforts. It can (and usually does) negatively impact your effectiveness, productivity, efficiency and peace of mind. Perfectionists lose sight of improvement, because they are focused on ‘perfect’. They also waste time and resources, and demotivate the people around them. Sounds sad, doesn’t it? For someone who wants to do things right, there’s a whole lot of wrong that comes from it.

    Excellence, on the other hand, focuses on IMPACT. People who are focused on excellence, are satisfied with doing a great job, even if it isn’t 100% of what they had in mind. People focused on excellence are less fearful, more inspired, less defensive and more resilient when things don’t go right.

    Decorate Your Castle-Unparalleled Paint and Wallpaper

    in Design

    Farrow & Ball is devoted to producing unparalleled paints and wallpapers that transform homes around the world. They are paint perfectionists, creating unmatched paint colours using only the finest ingredients and age-old methods which have withstood the test of time and the passage of many a fickle fad. They also make handcrafted wallpaper created using their own paints to print designs onto paper using traditional block and trough printing methods, which is what gives them their uniquely beautiful texture.
    Farro & Ball's meticulous approach to producing paint and wallpaper is rooted in their past. Farrow & Ball paints are born and bred in Dorset, England, in the same small town they have resided in since John Farrow, and fellow paint pioneer Richard Ball first founded the company.
    From small beginnings their reputation for quality quickly spread until the pair were supplying paint to the Admiralty and the War Office. The company bucked the trend towards cheaper, acrylic paints with high levels of plastic, in favour of the original formulations and natural ingredients.
    Over the years Farrow & Ball has been loved and appreciated by a dedicated and growing group of loyal customers all over the world who recognise the difference that attention to detail, quality ingredients and craftsmanship make.
    Today, their quest to create unmatchable products continues. Over the years they have grown their range of paint finishes, and they have added wallpapers to their portfolio, but they have never forgotten their past. Farrow & Ball may have over forty showrooms as far and wide as New York, Paris and London, but every batch of paint or wallpaper, however large or small, is still made in their factory in Dorset, England.

    Good Enough is Perfection

    in Entrepreneur

    With Jennifer Bailey of the Grace Street Group
    Do you have a propensity for setting extremely high standards and holding fast to a desire to execute tasks flawlessly? Do you feel anything less than perfect is unacceptable? In other words, are you a perfectionist?
    Perfectionism is characterized by expending more and more energy to achieve increasingly smaller gains. It’s all about additional effort that results in negligible improvement.
    Despite all their hard work, perfectionists don’t actually perform better than non-perfectionists. In fact, contrary to popular opinion, perfectionist tendencies can actually interfere with performance.
    Join Jennifer Bailey to explore the Master Mind Principle of Accurate Thinking and how perfectionism effects the way you think—and actually gets in the way of efficiency and effectiveness. You’ll learn strategies for adopting a mindset that reaps the rewards of productivity, not the false promise of perfection.
