A true perfectionist thinks “perfect” is all the things they don’t have or all the things they have to do. They set unrealistic expectations for themselves, which leads to mental breakdowns and burnouts.
The only way to get rid of fear is to just go out and do it. Taking chances is really just about overcoming them. Truth is every time you take a risk in life, no matter how it ends, you'll learn something from it. That’s why they’re called lessons.
