Key Takeaways To Tune In For

  • People keep taking you for granted because you keep letting them. You get to show the world how you want to be treated.
  • The first thing you need to do to stop people from taking you for granted is determine what you won’t accept from people and how you expect to be treated. Write it down. 
  • People cannot read your mind. People don’t already know how you want to be treated. Communicate your boundaries with people. 
  • You cannot be your best self for other people if you do not first take care of yourself.  Put your oxygen mask first before you try to help other people. 
  • Sometimes things are out of your control, but what is always in your control is your attitude. It is not about life or about other people, it is about how you react. 
  • You cannot use any love or influence to make people grow at the pace you want them to grow at.
