Boundaries are lines that we create based on what we allow ourselves or other people to do in order to mark the limit to an area of our lives.
In my last blog/episode, I talked about the different types of boundaries and how you can establish boundaries in order to grow your business. If you haven’t read/watched it yet, go here to learn more about it.
It’s also important to be able to communicate your boundaries with people around you in order to maintain a healthy environment for yourself.
If someone is asking you to do something, consider yourself and ask yourself if you can physically and mentally be able to do all the things that it requires. Also look at the things that may be sacrificed if you say yes to doing this – Would you need to sacrifice time with your family, your business, or even just time for yourself? If it does, you always have an option to say no. Most times, it is more effective that you don’t give reasons because they can be manipulated.
On the other hand, if you are trying to set a boundary with somebody you have a closer relationship with– maybe your spouse, your children, or a close friend, you may try and use nonviolent communication scripts, such as “I feel ________ when _____ and I need you to _____”. Remember that the key for this to be effective is defining your reasons as specifically as possible.
Setting boundaries for yourself will help you create a safer space for you to work on your priority and work towards your goal. Make sure that you are setting this up without hesitation, Impactful One.
