I’m finding myself not saying no enough. With that said, the things I am saying yes to are challenging me to be a better person. A better coach. A better advocate. They are helping me help others. Many others. So many others.
I am humbled to be able to give back to those that need so much support right now. How do I say no to that?
How do I say yes along with making sure I am not over stretching. Over reaching. Over whelming.
How do I continue to help so many without hindering the ability to ensure I am continuing to help myself.
We as coaches teach others to have tools and learn techniques to ensure they keep their boundaries and are doing the best for them as it is the only way to do the best for others.
What tools do you have in your toolbox to ensure you can still be of service to others while also ensuring you are of service to yourself?
I’m learning meditation. I think I’m finally getting the hang of it. I find it balances me for the task(s)/day ahead.
I’m journaling. I journal about what I’m grateful for and I write down those that I appreciate. I write lists. I write pros and cons. I write blogs!
I’m connecting. I’m connecting with my inner moxie and self to ensure I stay aware of situations that may be uncomfortable or challenging. I’m connecting with others. I’m connecting back to my exercise routine. I’m connecting on levels I didn’t know existed.
I’m networking. I am ensuring I am building a strong network of like-minded individuals that I know will have my back as they know I have theirs.
I am resting. At least trying to... I must take time to switch off the screens, the phone, the brain. This one is probably the hardest for me.
I am eating nourishing foods to keep me healthy and focused.
I read. I am an insatiable reader and there are times I can get through a book in a day. I love to learn. I love to get lost in stories.
So I ask once more, what tools do you have to ensure you can still be of service to others while also ensuring you are of service to yourself?
Ensure you have a toolbox full of techniques you can use to keep your boundaries in place. Say no when saying yes doesn’t feel right. Say yes for the right reasons.
