I’m looking forward to this toolkit – thank you!
I have long been a perfectionist, and am only realizing this late in my life (I’m 54) how far back my attempts at being perfect in other’s eyes has shaped my life decisions. I chose a profession that demands a mistake-free performance, and after “failing” (i.e. having positions not working out because I made too many mistakes!), I’m just now realizing I’ve been trying to force a round peg into a square hole, and I’ve got to change course professionally. I have chronic health issues that pre-date career choices, and am married and a mother of a 12 year old boy who is the sparkling joy in my life. I’m now faced with weaving a new work life for myself, while pulling my weight financially, while being truer to myself. I think the reality of working and earning $$ is where I often get stuck. Thank you again for the tool kit!!
Tina, you’re so welcome! I hope that the toolkit speaks out to you and encourages you along your journey. It sounds like you are making some really brave choices to be in integrity with who you truly are, and I applaud you for that. Weaving a new work life is a challenge for sure, but I bet you’re up to it.
If you’re looking for some good “recovering perfectionist” speakers on business and finances, I’d recommend checking out several of the speakers I interviewed for The Confidence Course this year. You can find that at: https://awishcomeclear.com/TheConfidenceCourseSeries/
In particular, you might like to hear from Jenny Shih, Kendrick Shope, Cathy Presland, Cherie Lowe, or Jody B. Miller; all of them did a great job talking about the topics you mentioned. In any case, I’m so glad that you’re here, and know that I’m cheering you on in your endeavors!
