About the Book
A pursuit for perfection may drive you to do more, have more and be more—but at what cost? And what happens when your purpose and perfectionism are in conflict?
In Cracked Mirror, Clear Reflection, author and life coach Julie Barbera invites you on a journey from fear and doubt to discovering the courage to step out. After spending years struggling with an illusion of perfection and a feeling of insecurity, Julie recognized that the clear reflections in her cracked mirror gave her the courage to take a chance.
And you, too, can discover that there really is freedom on the other side of perfectionism—freedom from a need to be perfect just to start, freedom from a fear of what others think, freedom from a feeling of not being good enough, and a freedom to do what you love, love what you do and live a life of purpose. But most of all, you can find the freedom to become who God has called you to be.
Perfection is just an illusion. Everyone has flaws. Yet despite the cracks, your reflection can still be clear. When you are forced to look in the mirror, in weaknesses you just might find your greatest strengths—and this is the clearest reflection of all.
