Naturally Thin for Life with Laura Dixon | Why Perfectionism is Really Fear

I used to be what I call a procrastinating perfectionist. I would put off getting started on things, but then I would simultaneously strive for perfection when I eventually did start. But once I was able to understand what was driving these tendencies, I was able to let go of perfectionism once and for all.

Letting go of perfectionism doesn’t mean lowering your standard for yourself. Instead, it means you reach your goal even faster because you stop making decisions out of fear. So, this week, I’m helping you break the perfectionism chain and learn to have freedom while maintaining high standards for yourself.

Tune in this week to discover why perfectionism is really fear and how this plays into your weight loss and being Naturally Thin. I’m showing you why holding on to a perfect way to lose weight will only keep you stuck in restricting and overeating, and how to let go of perfectionism and reach your goal weight even faster.
