Confidence is essential for forging new paths in our careers, building relationships and for our mental health.
But if there’s one thing that can seriously dent confidence, it’s perfectionism, leadership specialist and author of The Power of Real Confidence, Michelle Sales, told Yahoo Finance.
“One of the main issues around confidence is essentially perfectionism. When we are a perfectionist, it can have a real impact on our confidence in that we refuse to do things until they're just right. We overwork things,” she said.
