Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo- Better than Perfect: 7 Strategies to Crush Your Inner Critic and Create a Life You Love
This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo. The original live interview was 11/14/14.
Do you struggle with stress only to occasionally take a step back and realize how good you have it compared to others?
Is there a sense that, regardless of your achievements, you need to keep making more money or do more, never feeling fully satisfied with where things are now?
When you achieve a goal, are you disappointed that you don’t feel more fulfilled?
Do you wish you had stronger relationships with your family, friends, colleagues, or even yourself?
Does your Inner Critic get in your way of your happiness or success?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are not alone.
Perfectionists exist in every walk of life. While outwardly they appear to be very accomplished, they are often unhappy and unfulfilled. Perfectionists strive toward unattainable goals, and their behaviors can wreak havoc on both their physical health and their psychological well-being.
With the ultimate goal of helping readers achieve happiness and prosperity without the stress of making sure things are “perfect,” Better than Perfect is a fundamental guide for all perfectionists seeking new, fulfilled, and empowered lives.
Most of my clients have achieved significant success in at least one area of their lives. They give the image that they have it all together. “My friends would never believe I am working with you”, is a sentiment I often hear from my clients when we first start working together. They are successful in their business, leaders in their work and/or community, financially comfortable. Many of my clients are household names.
And yet, something is missing: not having the relationships they want with a partner or child, high levels of stress, less-than-optimal health, or an inner critic that takes control at times.
In short, they are successful “on paper” or by some people’s standards but feel something is lacking in their life.
Can you relate?
Well, here is the good news- there is hope.
