Have you ever considered how your boundaries may impact how successful you are professionally? I’ve always been interested in the intersection of boundaries and business, but I’ve been digging even deeper into the topic recently as I’ve added a few people to my team. Inspired by what I’ve observed during this process, I’m excited to share today six ways your boundaries make you more successful!
Biggest Takeaways From Episode #80:
- From time to time, reflect on what success means to you. Try to separate your own views and beliefs from what you hear from the media or the culture, and create your own definition of success.
- Most of us are truly passionate about and highly skilled in just one to three areas. If you’re not clear about what you love to do or your strengths, you probably won’t experience much success. When you focus on your superpowers, though, you can almost always guarantee your success.
- Boundaries can help you figure out how you want to spend your time, meet deadlines, overdeliver, become more hireable, create confidence in others, and be selective about how you spend your time. All of these can help you become more successful.
