Psychologists have long since recognized the perfectionist complex as one of the most destructive to human growth and development.
Many people use it as an excuse.
Making a statement such as… “when I learn to do it perfectly, I’ll start being successful”, is a way to prevent getting started.
Waiting for perfection in any aspect of our lives will usually guarantee a deficiency in that area.
Too many people manifest their perfection complex by making “if only” excuses about their lack of success:
If only I had more education….
If only the economy was better……
If only I could do it all over again….
If only I had been luckier…..
If only I could have gone to college…..
It is better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.
