"Like a weed, perfectionism grows into an overpowering force that steals nutrients from your source, damaging it's vibrancy. Even if you pull up the weeds by the roots, they will return unless you address the cause of why the weeds grew"
These are the words of Dr. Traci Nicole Smith, who is a Conscious Driven Living Coach, empowering others to embody joy through intentionality. To live purposefully, feel passionately and align authentically!
Dr. Susan and Traci discuss Perfectionism- how it can develop
