129: How Perfectionism Is Keeping You Broke 

Perfectionism is a double-edged sword. 
One can motivate you to perform well. On the other hand, it can cause you unnecessary anxiety and slow you down. 
It's important to educate yourself about what constitutes perfectionism and why it's seen as keeping you broke. 
Tuned into this episode so you can decide how much you want to work at shrugging off these traits and learn strategies to accomplish your goal.
Remember

2:22 - 2:29 Just remember that millionaires still worry about money some days and billionaires still go to the toilet just like anyone else.
2:30 - 2:38 Some still struggle about their weight, their self-esteem, they get divorced and generally live the same kind of lives as anyone.

02:39- 03:05 The difference? They just have more money! Are you delaying your flow of abundance because you’re overthinking it too much? Because perfectionism is a true problem that I see in so many women that I speak with and I have coached and mentored. I think this is more of a female thing than a male thing. We need to justify and deserve everything that comes to us. 
3:06 - 3:14 We are so super critical of ourselves that we think we should fundamentally change before the universe rewards us.
3:59 - 4:06 There was literally no correlation between you being neat and perfect equals to being rich and being wealthy.
4:06 - 4:16 And then I realize I think a messy desk won’t prevent you from being rich. If you are messy before, you are messy after. It’s just your personality.
Give yourself permission to be exactly as you are and rich

4:40 - 4:53 Give yourself permission to be exactly as you are and rich. As I always say, you have a diamond within you and you deserve to shine!
4:54 - 5:00 Don’t put rich or successful people on the pedestal and think that they are perfect.
5:00 - 5:26 Find mentors who admit to their flaws and are vulnerable. Then they give you behind the scenes on how their businesses really work. Unfortunately, some gurus of the personal development industry love to show a glossy exterior to the world, live beyond their means to show off or exaggerate their lifestyle.

05:29- 06:02 This perpetuates the myth of the perfect life. The thing is, you don’t need to be perfect to be rich. In fact, you’ll still need to be you, just a richer version of you. Just a richer version of you, a Soul Rich Woman. Your fundamental personality won’t change at all. I’ll tell you how mine has changed over the last three years. I’m still the same person, but not everything has remained the same.

06:03- 06:15 Since becoming wealthier, I few things here and this is my own opinion. I’m much pickier about the people I hang out with, I chose the people I spend my time with.

07:53- 07:58 And also, I'm no longer bothered about people-pleasing. You like me, you like me. You don't like me, so what?

08:02- 08:24 Apart from that, I’m the same, Genecia introverted Gemini I’ve always been. Everything else has just come with experience and not money.
