I’ve been working with a client for a little over a year now and I continue to watch her get triggered by certain key people in her life.
All it takes is a couple of chosen words for my client to get angry, frustrated and stressed out by her mother.
Emotions like these can be extremely detrimental to my client’s process. When she gets triggered emotionally, those emotions become toxic to the other areas of her life that we are working on improving.
Like a domino effect, the anger, frustration and stress leads to self-sabotaging decision-making. Her eating falls off track, she doesn’t want to work out and then she feels guilty and mad at her self, preventing her from getting a good nights sleep.
In today’s ‘MoMonday Video: Setting Healthy Boundaries (click here to watch)’, I teach you what I taught her, about the importance of creating healthy boundaries that protect you psychologically and emotionally, and protect your goals as well.
I want you to do a relationship audit right now:
-Take a closer look at the people in your life and ask yourself if any of them trigger you emotionally.
-Then see if you can specifically identify what it is that they are doing to trigger you.
-That way you can start to create ground rules for that relationship laying out what you will and will no longer put up with.
-Performing this exercise will ensure you have strong, clear boundaries that will protect you psychologically and emotionally.
A key strategy in driving your performance to the next level is to manage your state-it’s quite simply the most important factor affecting your results. Getting triggered into a low-quality state is detrimental to your goals. So get right to work and start building those healthy boundaries and watch your results soar.
Until next time, make every performance count!
