Too often, we forget to think about ourselves and we place other people above us. The values and goals of others overtake ours and we end up living out someone else’s dreams rather than our own.
WHETHER IT’S WITH YOUR WORK, YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR FAMILY OR EVEN YOURSELF, IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER WHO COMES FIRST… YOU!
Reflect on your current situations and relationships, and take note of where you may have been taken advantage of. Maybe you worked overtime for a long time and then were denied that promotion you were working towards. Maybe you find yourself always running after the kids and never get around to taking that bath you wanted. It could even be saying yes to too many of your friend’s social events and never having enough time for your own projects… This last one was one of my main vices, and it wasn’t until I said “enough is enough” and put ME in the captain’s seat that my purpose really became clear and took off.
This whole book is about putting yourself first and taking the next step towards a healthier, more fulfilling life. So, take back the steering wheel of your life and recognize your own amazing value and worth.
