Too Many Compromises

Too Many Compromises

As a natural people-pleaser, it is tempting to try to satisfy everyone all the time. However, doing so compromises my best efforts. Trying to be everything to everyone means I am not giving my best to anyone, and this is unfair and irresponsible. Do you know how to set boundaries on your time and the things/ activities you say ‘yes’ to? Recognize that saying ‘no’ to some things means saying ‘yes’ will have an even greater impact.
