Set Your Boundaries

By | Blog | No Comments

How often have you heard the term “push the boundaries”? I bet more than a few times. In today’s world, we’re either encouraged to push boundaries (take risks! break barriers!) or we’re told to conform with no middle ground. Unfortunately many of us are not only afraid to push the boundaries, we’re allowing people overstep their boundaries with us.

Professionally speaking, I’m a huge fan of pushing boundaries. In fact, I’ve encouraged you to push your own boundaries. Go after that dream job. Start your own social club. Turn that hobby into a business. But what about those other boundaries? Maintaining strict personal boundaries is essential to pushing the boundaries elsewhere in your life.

You can push boundaries while still maintaining the boundaries you set for other people. Those two things really go hand-in-hand. Just because you’re taking a big risk, it doesn’t mean that you have to jump head-first into something that gives you an uneasy feeling. Read More

Feeling content with your finances due to an optimistic outlook on the markets? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Who would consider you enough of an expert to be a nation-wide public speaker anyway? How can you possibly start a business when you’re overwhelmed with the current job you have?

There is, however, a silver lining to obstacles; they can show us that we maybe need to shift either our path or our goals. And these aren’t bad things. I’m not telling you to completely dump the idea of starting a business or buying your dream house. But what I am telling you is that there are several ways to make those things a reality.

I’m sure there are a lot of people out there that had a specific goal in mind, worked their plan and made exactly what they wanted happen. But what those people don’t tell you is that even they had obstacles and they had to shift along the way. Sometimes it was an external one where they had to slightly change courses. Other times, though, it was an internal shift. One that forced them to look within before taking another step. Read More
