If I decide to go against the boundaries that I've set to protect me (including my head space, my mental space, and my physical space), I could end up unable to perform at the level of quality that people need me to. It creates a ripple effect.
The result is that we can’t charge what we're able to charge now because we provide a subpar product.
Then I have to work harder for less money.
Then I'd have to let go of my team members.
Then we'd be right back where I was three years ago: exhausted, worn out, and just couldn't wrap my head around adding anything else in.
The result? I literally sabotaged the future of my business by letting go of my boundaries in the past.
