Online: Tired of being a perfectionist?

For anyone who wants to learn how to make mistakes.

No one likes making mistakes. It becomes a different story when you strive for perfection to the extent that you don't allow yourself to make any mistakes and therefore avoid taking action altogether.

Perfectionism can go so far that it takes a toll on your self-worth. You take everything personally and feel like a complete failure when things don't go as planned. It can also hinder your work in the form of fear of failure and procrastination. Letting go and changing your mindset are the keywords to finding more peace of mind.

Are you someone that believes setting the bar high is quite normal, but would you actually like to lower it somewhat? Are you someone that likes to organize everything down to the finest details? Preferably all by yourself, so that you can be sure things will run smoothly? Do you sometimes lose yourself in private, and work, situations as a result? If so, this learning journey is just what you need. You want to embark on this learning journey about how to overcome perfectionism because you sometimes have to cope with stressful situations just like everyone else. Situations when your feelings get the upper hand. Situations when you do not behave as you'd like, when you get angry, irritated, or just miserable. If you can't let go of the emotion, you worry, or you constantly blame yourself, you can really struggle. It demands a great deal of (negative) energy too. If this is the case, it's time to do something about it. And you can. You can take control of your emotions. Everyone experiences emotions, whether or not we're used to showing them. Do you want to feel less insecure, learn to let go and appear more self-confident? RET (Rational Effectiveness Training) is a very effective method for helping you do so.


You now have an impression of the learning journey. Would you like to continue learning? Do you want to give yourself a boost? Then let's get started.
