It's time for module number 7. In this module we’re going to go over the fourth and final issue closely related to perfectionism. It’s an important topic, because approval addiction is a very visible show of perfectionism, which both undermines us and keeps us playing small.
Do you constantly make choices to avoid disapproval or criticism, instead of doing what’s most valuable or important to you?
Do you hold yourself back from speaking your opinions or hide your true self?
Do you spend far too much time on tasks in order to perfect them because you think this will make people appreciate you more?
This is classic approval addict behavior. #notcool
If this has you going check, check, double check, then I’m sure this module will be hugely beneficial for you.
In the next lesson, we’re going to do a deep dive into approval addiction and how it works exactly and then, in the lesson after that, it’s time for some practical strategies for dealing with your approval seeking behavior.
Let’s get to it.
