68. 10 Steps to Break Free From People-Pleasing

Today’s topic is one that is all too familiar to me and the women I coach.  In fact, a recent coaching session is what inspired this episode.  As I work with women to create more time in their busy lives for the things that matter most, it is almost a universal theme that the foundation of their time management challenges comes from a deeply ingrained pattern of people pleasing, overachieving, and/or approval seeking.  Success in time management truly becomes a by-product of working through the deeper issues and patterns that get us to a place of constant “busy ness”. 


As I thought about some tools that I have used to break free from the limiting beliefs that result in people pleasing, the exercise I am going to share with you today is one that I do on a regular basis.  It truly keeps me grounded in the present and keeps me focused on the Lord instead of the approval of others. 


Today, You are definitely going to want to get a notebook and pen, or listen now and come back with a notebook and a pen for a second listen.  It is very tactical and practical for every day application. 



If this message resonates with you and you find yourself needing a partner in navigating patterns of people pleasing that are hijacking your time and mental peace, I would be honored to link arms with you through Christian Life Coaching.  Learn more about that at  If you just want to hang out with me here, that’s awesome too!  Either way, it is my desire to serve you!!  



I hope this episode blesses you!
