Does perfectionism control your life? Do you feel paralyzed by the fear of what others think about you? Is it difficult to start and finish tasks because you are worried that you will make a mistake? I think we all struggle with perfectionism to some degree. This week, we are talking with fitness professional and the author of The Perfection Detox, Petra Kolber
