Episode Description

When I was working on my PhD, everyone said: The only good dissertation is a done one. It was a warning that few followed despite the clear wisdom. This was before computers and spell check. Invariably, no matter how many times you read and reread your dissertation, you would open the final copy only to discover a typo. My second lesson on perfectionism came when I was Director of Leadership Development and Organizational Health at the Carrollton-Farmers Branch School District. I gave a report to the school board with some errors in it. I was so upset with myself that I went to the superintendent to apologize. He said something I will never forget: People like it when you make a mistake. They feel better when they see you're not perfect. And today, my first email said: Avoid the perfect book syndrome. Perfectionism doesn't work for anyone. In fact, there is no such thing. It only resides as a tormenting thought in our minds. Please join us Thursday to start moving past perfectionism.

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.

The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness.
