As a result, however, of this high need to please I often felt harried, exhausted, and wiped out. But mostly I felt like I was not reaching my own goals for I was spending too much time on everybody else. I was an overachiever, but could not perform my most important actions.
Through focusing on what is most important to me while still nurturing my relationships I have finally learned that in order to grow up and truly realign my priorities I must now say no and protect my time from duties which do not require my attention or which I cannot take on at that time. It is worth saying no as my body no longer feels lethargic and I have developed stronger more authentic relationships.
What do you have to say no to today?
