What are your Boundaries – what will you never do?
I was reading an article recently which talked about the things that the author was never going to do. I’d never really thought about that before and found it really useful to make a list of things that I am never going to do. Since doing that, I’ve made some quite big changes and passed on some opportunities which I didn’t feel good about. These things weren’t about confidence or self esteem as I think I’m pretty OK with those, but just made me clearer on what my boundaries are and will be in the future – very useful!
Watch the video and then ask yourself the questions below and then come up with a list:
- What makes you feel bad?
- What doesn’t feel right?
- Which people don’t get you
- Who is always questioning what you do?
- Who are your mood hoovers?
- When can’t you be yourself?
Sometimes people struggle with their boundaries and want to please others or are afraid of the consequences of not doing something that they used to do. The 2 questions that I always ask myself in this scenario are:
What if you did?
What if you didn’t?
Create a list of what you are Never Going To Do – whey hey – that’s liberating isn’t it!
And let me know what’s on your list in the comments
