When it comes to setting boundaries in your business and life, there is only one person who can stop you from not following them and that person is you.
It is completely up to you to set and follow the boundaries you have in place. If you don’t follow your own boundaries, then nobody else will.
This means that you have to do a few things:
a. Know what your boundaries are
b. Communicate what your boundaries are
c. Enforce your boundaries
There will be times where even though you have set and communicated boundaries they won’t always be respected. In those times you will have to enforce them. Remind the individual of the boundary you have in place and don’t budget.
You’ll have to apply this with others as well as with yourself. Here are a few ways to set boundaries with yourself:
1. Remind yourself of why you set the boundary
Always focus on your why. Why did you set these boundaries? Why did you make them this way? Then you will be reminded on why they are important to follow.
2. Always honor the boundaries you have in place
You set the standard for how seriously you take your boundaries. If you follow them others will too. If you don’t follow them then others won’t follow them either.
3. Live your best life and build your best business with boundaries
Live through your boundaries in order to discover that they are no something restricting but rather something freeing. Boundaries will provide you with the freedom to live the life you have always dreamed of.
Set boundaries and stick to them and you will find yourself living the life of your dreams and running a thriving business.
