Description

Perfectionism is a painful way to live. It is a cage that takes away freedom; it is a load of bricks on the back that reduces performance. A perfectionist is critical of everyone. Nothing is ever good enough, especially one’s own performance. When perfectionists win, to them it feels like a loss anyway. “I could have done better,” they tell themselves.
It is a painful way to live—or to live close to—but it does not have to be that way. Dr. Rich Walters, experienced therapist and author of The Perfectionism Trap and How to Escape, explains clearly how you can exchange the burden of perfectionism for the joys of excellence.
This course prepares you to change what you need to change. To swap the agony of over-reach for the joy of grasping success. The course combines video mini-lectures (you gain knowledge) with activities to improve your own circumstances (these help you use the knowledge) . Along with the video coaching, you will invest some time to think and plan. The potential payback is great; it is worth doing it well.

You will learn

✓ You will learn if perfectionism is hurting your performance or relationships.
✓ If you are, in fact, a perfectionist, you will improve your performance by trading the frustrations of impossible striving for excellence, which allows you to attain higher goals.
✓ You will adopt attitudes and habits that reduce stress and increase productivity.
✓ To get the benefits of perfectionism without the costs. Early in this course you will fill out an inventory (fully confidential) that helps you know if you are or are not a perfectionist, and if you are, what type. This will help you know what to change and how to change it. You will select strategies that appeal to you to make those changes. Because perfectionism is a burden, when you are free from that you will be able to perform better. Quit getting squashed by impossible demands and start dancing!
✓ For those who live with a perfectionistic person, to gain coping (survival) skills for yourself and practical methods to guide the other person toward better thinking.

• This course has about an hour or so of instructional video, additional things to read, motivational mini-posters, and two confidential quizzes.
• For best results, study a little, the think a lot. It’s about you, so that thinking will go with you where you go. This how you make powerful changes in personal matters. It is a step-by-step series of improvements.
• You do not need prior courses to benefit from this; just the desire to learn.
• Bottom line: The course is short but if study is sincere and is not rushed the benefits can last a lifetime.
