Signs You're Trying too Hard to Please Everyone

People-pleasing isn't inherently a bad thing. In fact, it's healthy to want to please your family or your supervisors. But there are times when your desire to please others can become problematic. Here are seven signs that your desire to be a people-pleaser has become unhealthy: 1. You Can't Say No Saying yes to everyone's requests means you're saying no to something else. Whether your willingness to volunteer for a committee takes time away from your family, or your inability to say no to a neighbor's dinner invitation means you won't have time to go to the gym, saying yes to everything has consequences. Tip:  If yes has become your automatic answer, start saying, "I'll have to look into that and get back to you." Then, take a few minutes to consider what you want to do before you make any promises. 2. You Struggle to Make Decisions If you're used to answering questions based on what you think people want to hear, you

As far back as these cavemen, sharing was used to both promote friendship, and also occasionally to promote survival of the group.

Nowadays though, although in first world countries food is no longer an issue, and does not play such la

Making Time For The Family

When you first begin your business, everything is fine and dandy. It's like bringing home the new baby from the hospital. Everyone visits to see the new baby.

Now it's time to get down to raising this new baby and preparing him or her to be successful for their role in life. A new business suffers about the same type of beginning.

Our nerves are tensed because there is so much more to do and so little time. Tempers flare and the news media calls it "road rage" or "domestic violence." Our children feel stress at an early age and many of our older adult population never get to find and enjoy their "golden years."

Letting Go

Do you feel less than you'd like to? Less happy, less confident, less "everything" than others? Sometimes your head seems just above the water even though the rope you're holding is tight in your hands. Perhaps you're holding on when you should be letting go. Letting go can be one of the most difficult things we ever have to do. It can also be one of the most liberating. Opening your hand to let the butterfly fly away - that jewel-like creature we wish we could hold forever - means its cycle of life can continue, uninterrupted. The reward? Jewels returned to us tenfold year after year as we walk through a garden. Some of my darkest times involve holding on to things. Past mistakes which I refused to let fade from the "Open" file in my memory. The job I chose to leave behind in which I could have achieved so much more. The child who stayed in my body for just a few months before dying. People who have hurt me and people I've hurt. S
