What Are Personal Boundaries?
The limits and rules we set for ourselves within relationships and our lives. A person with healthy boundaries can say "no" to others when they want to, but they are also comfortable opening themselves up to intimacy and close relationships.
There's a healthy balance between work and life, consistent energy levels and a sense of fulfilment as opposed to exhaustion and burnout.
A person who always keeps others at a distance (whether emotionally, physically, or otherwise) is said to have rigid boundaries. Alternatively, someone who tends to get too involved with others has porous boundaries.
Self-esteem is how we see our identity, self-belief is how we value our abilities. An overall feeling of confidence can transcend many of the challenges we’re faced with in our lives and career. Sometimes we do well, other times less well, but we can continue to believe that we will succeed in most things and in the long run. Positive self-belief creates a good impression on others and is a good predictor of success. It shows an ability to deal with setbacks and to accept both positive and negative consequences.
Here’s a story about leadership in action
I met a stranger at the gym which is unusual because when I enter the gym it’s headset on, minimal eye contact, I’m here to train!
This stranger managed to have a big impact on my training and mindset with just a few short interactions. I reflected on that and realised he demonstrated a powerful process that can be adopted by anyone who wants to get the best out of people around them, be it their team, peers or friends.
Leaders are everywhere, not just in the office. Sometimes they pop up when you least expect it.
How to give feedback to unsuccessful candidates and enhance your organisations reputation.
Candidates applying to work for your organisation and with your team are often your biggest supporters. They’ve watched your organisation from afar and want to be involved. Whether you hire them or not. If you manage this well, they will continue to support you. If you fail to communicate effectively (or at all in many cases) what message do you think they will share with the world?
Crossing over the line and investing in yourself is not as easy as it seems on the surface. There’s a lot of psychology involved when it comes to investing in yourself; whether that be time, energy, money …
Lots of people have subconscious blocks around being worthy, deserving of investment or creating a life they love. I have clients who have harboured dreams for years but haven’t been able to move into action. They arrive at my door when they’re ready to stop circling the idea and start creating the life they truly desire.
