What Happens When You Start to Set Boundaries? (EP051)

A common question when people start to set boundaries is: what happens when you set boundaries? How will other people react? Will they become aggressive with you? How should I respond? All of these questions are normal when you start to set boundaries.

There are two difficulties you’re up against when you set boundaries. First, you have to work up the courage to set boundaries with the other person. Second, you have to be prepared to protect those boundaries once you’ve set them. It’s the “protection” aspect I address in this podcast episode.

Protecting your boundaries once you’ve set them is incredibly important. People will try to push your boundaries. They will try to get you to change your mind and do what they want you to do. As a leader, it’s very important that you are strong enough to protect your boundaries and not give in to other people’s pressure.

Setting boundaries in your professional or personal life can be challenging, but not impossible. I hope this podcast episode will give you the confidence to protect your boundaries once you’ve set them.
