Perfectionism drains personal power. Striving to meet high, self-imposed standards and ideals in order to control external experiences is exhausting. The constant push combined with on-going dissatisfaction depletes the human spirit. There is only so much energy we have on any given day, so it is vital that we use our energy wisely.
Have you been relentlessly pursuing perfectionism in your work? Are you constantly seeking ideals for your body, home, or personal relationships? Do you feel frustrated or hopeless over not having achieved certain things in life yet? Let go of struggle and allow your natural self to emerge. Ground yourself in the present moment and appreciate all that is currently present. Life happens in the moment and that is where your authentic power lies.
