We live in a fast passed world and because of that, we often give more to others than to ourselves. How long can that work without burning out? When you are burnt out, what is left for you? Stop doing that because life is too short. Savor moments and create memories. The best way to do that is to create options. Here are some easy steps to take:

1.       Give yourself permission to ask for help. Remember the only bad question is the one you did not ask out of pride and fear.

2.       Give yourself permission to say no. This creates boundaries in order to save your energy for what you really want to do.

3.       Give yourself permission to set the bar high.  However, it is ok that you don’t complete the intended task. As the saying goes: if you reach for the stars and if you don’t get them, at least got to the sky. Doing your best is what counts.

4.       Give yourself permission to take a chance. Yes, believe in yourself and don’t ever listen to someone else who tells you that you can’t. Ask yourself why are they telling you not to do it? Is it because your success means they now have to evaluate themselves. You can hear advice but always listen to your voice.
