"As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live."

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Are you stuck in the Perfection Loop?

While each person's idea of a perfect life may appear different on the surface, our underlying motivation is often the same – we view perfection as the path to success and happiness.

But what happens when your achievements don't make you successful or happy? Or worse yet, what if the perfection you desire proves impossible to attain? Worst of all, what would you do if your carefully crafted life suddenly fell apart?

As a life coach, I’ve seen time and time again what happens when people get stuck in the Perfection Loop. They waste a tremendous amount of energy trying to make their world perfect and end up feeling overwhelmed by everything they can't control. This often leads to a fear of uncertainty and indecision, until they finally have no choice, but to make a major change...and then they repeat the cycle all over again.

This is an exhausting way to live.

In order to break free of the Perfection Loop, you're going to need a radical new perspective of reality. You also need wisdom. Although you can certainly receive it from individuals you consider to be much wiser and braver than yourself, I want you to know this very same wisdom already exists inside of you. You'll find it as you walk the path of the Courageous Embrace...

The Courageous Embrace...

Do you consider yourself to be empathetic? Is it easier for you to put the needs of other people ahead of your own? Are you highly self-critical when you don't meet your expectations for perfection? This six-step framework offers new perspectives on these natural tendencies, so you can harness them to make a difference in the world.

I developed the Courageous Embrace to explain my personal experiences with overcoming anxiety, and once I started my coaching practice I began using it to help my clients navigate their own struggles. It is accompanied by a wide variety of practical resources and strategies that will help you move through each step. I also encourage you to incorporate your own existing practices to create the toolkit that's just right for you!

Please note: completely avoiding stress and anxiety is not the ultimate goal of the Courageous Embrace. Anytime you face new challenges, these uncomfortable emotions are bound to arise. When you understand their purpose within the context of your life, they actually serve to guide you toward greater authenticity and fulfillment. As you become more comfortable with uncertainty, your feelings of stress and anxiety will naturally decrease over time.

Although this path is deeply rooted in the unifying concepts of many great spiritual teachers and philosophers throughout history, no belief in any particular religion or dogma is necessary. Your own life experiences will serve as the key to unlocking the wisdom hidden inside you.
