How to overcome at work
“Perfectionism is a dream killer, because it’s just fear disguised as trying to do your best.” “There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let’s people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.”
The very first tip on how to overcome perfectionism is to identify why you try to be perfect.
Some people believe that being perfect is respectful and admirable
The fact is that no one can be perfect.
Trying to become perfect is one way to under pressure and get stressed. put yourself
“Perfectionism is self-abuse of the highest order.” “Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor.”
HOPE & REALITY

A BIG PICTURE
Do not spend too much time concerning about “the very little things”.
Ask yourself the questions like:
You should know that someone else is happy with less than what you have.
Look around, and you will see that you are still happier than many other people.
You have a house or an apartment to live in.
You have a job and can do what you want.
No matter what happens to you, you still have an opportunity to change it and learn from it.
Therefore, you should always show your gratitude to life and other people around you
“A moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude.”
“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.”
Forgiveness helps release your bad emotions and negative thoughts
If someone makes mistakes, you should not be angry with him for too long.
What you should do is to tell that person how to avoid the mistakes, and then completely forget his fault.
& LET GO
You should learn to trust others enough to delegate works to them.
If those people cannot fulfill a task, teach them how, and give them a helping hand rather than taking over the work entirely.
Do not compare yourself with others as comparison fuels perfectionism

“Don’t compare yourself to others. That’s a battle you can never win.”
