Video clip: Marella said that at one time she lacked confidence, perhaps because she is a perfectionist.
I think you said yourself that at one time you lacked confidence.
I did, I did.
Why was that do you think?
I think because I’m a perfectionist and that was the other advice that this colleague gave me, drop 15% of your perfectionism. And I used to put the bar very high for myself and when you do that you’re never going to be happy obviously. So I would put the bar higher than anybody else would put it and when you start to realise those things that was quite helpful.
