It’s me again and this time we are talking about how to create boundaries. Creating Boundaries is the crucial step you’ll need to take to have limits on what and who has access to you.
There’s a saying that goes, “Protect your peace.” This is what boundaries do
for you. It protects you, but do you know what you need protection from?
Creating boundaries has everything to do with how you want things to be and little to do with how you don’t want things to be. Boundaries should work for you. Let’s identify how you want your life to look.
I am going to ask you a painstaking question. What do you want? What do you want!!?! For now, let’s focus on three areas:
What do you want in your relationships? Do you want to be respected? What boundaries do you need to create for that to happen? Do you want to build trust?
What type of work do you want to do? What promotions are you seeking to obtain? What company do you dream about working for? Or what business do you want to create and operate?
Do you want be debt free in a next year? How much money do you want to save for a new house?
How does that look? How does it feel? What will it take to get to your desired outcome?
Sure, the answers can be modified. However, once you begin to answer these questions, you’ll be able to see where boundaries need to be set. We can write the desires of our hearts all day long, but you’ll need to lay the foundation needed to bring it to life.
Remember, boundaries are more about what you want in your life. Don’t worry about how others may perceive them. Be assertive about creating boundaries and adamant about following them. When you do that, everyone else will, too.
