Gifts of Imperfection™

Let go of who you think you're supposed to be, and embrace who you are! Perfectionism is a self-destructive and addictive belief system that fuels this primary thought: If I look perfect and do everything perfectly, I can avoid or minimize the painful feelings of blame, judgement, and shame. This is a myth...no one is perfect. These thoughts hold people back from enjoying life and can cause significant amounts of distress. Have you ever seen a student cry when getting a 90% or fall apart after coming in 2nd place in a competition? In this session you will learn about the “gifts” of imperfection: courage, connection, and compassion. These are “gifts” because they come when you’re willing to be vulnerable—you develop the courage to accept that you’re imperfect, you connect with other people because they empathize with your vulnerability, and you become compassionate with other people because you realize nobody’s perfect and accept their imperfections. Learn tools for embracing healthy striving, rather than perfectionism, to excel in life.
