Many driven entrepreneurs overlook and/or do not understand the importance of protecting themselves by setting and respecting their own boundaries. This practice is essential for aligning your inner and outer worlds, allowing you to operate from a place of love and authenticity.
Why Boundaries Matter
Boundaries are the guidelines that help you focus on what truly matters. By setting clear boundaries, protecting yourself, you ensure you’re engaging in activities that energize you and make a meaningful impact. We encourage you to think about this in terms of the value of your time, energy, and emotional wellbeing.
Focus on Impact and Energy
As driven entrepreneurs, we often fall into the trap of doing everything ourselves. (“It’s easier for me to do it rather than explain it to someone.”) It’s crucial to ask, “Is this task contributing to my 10-Year Thinking Vision? Is it something that only I can do?” If not, it may be time to delegate. Engage in activities that fuel your passion and let others handle tasks that would be more suitable for a different pay level.
Decisions from the Heart
Decisions driven by fear or ego lead us down the wrong path . When you operate from a place of love and authenticity, your choices align with your true self. This alignment not only brings peace but also paves the way for sustainable success.
Journaling Prompt: Take 3 minutes to jot down your answers to these questions:
- Identifying Energy Drainers: What are three activities or commitments that consistently drain your energy? How can you modify or eliminate them?
- Assessing Impact: Reflect on your daily tasks. Which of these make the most significant impact towards your goals? How can you focus more on these impactful activities?
- Heart-Centered Decisions: Recall a recent decision made out of fear or ego. How would this decision change if it were made from a place of love and your True Self?
Remember, protecting YOU and setting boundaries is not selfish; it’s essential for your growth and wellbeing. This is about your IMPACT!
