An innovative approach to help you maintain your high standards while also accepting mistakes with compassion and kindness.

If you're a perfectionist, you know there's a helpful upside to pushing yourself toward excellence: achievement, success--and, hey, it can be fun and rewarding to work hard But unhelpful perfectionism can just as easily work against you. It can prevent you from taking risks or trying new things out for fear of failure, judgment, or rejection; cause you to procrastinate; and make you feel like no matter what you achieve, you'll never be good enough.

Grounded in evidence-based acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), this workbook will help you discover what drives this 'dark side' of perfectionism, and develop the skills you need to overcome it--without lowering your standards. By leaning in to your values and treating yourself with kindness and compassion, you'll learn to put mistakes in perspective without wallowing in self-criticism. Most importantly, you'll find that you can allow for imperfection, without losing your drive to achieve.

If you're ready to stop unhealthy perfectionism from paralyzing your personal growth--and start embracing yourself as perfectly imperfect--this book will introduce you to a whole new you
