Exercise Your Options - Les Brown

Exercise your options! There are certain things and certain people that you don’t have to deal with. You allow yourself to deal with them when you really don’t have to. At the end of the day, we have the power of choice. But many times, we give it away by not creating the boundaries that allow us to take care of ourselves. We allow ourselves to be stressed out by people who create unnecessary drama or headaches when we have the power to ignore the behavior and say "I don’t have to deal with this or with you...this is optional."

It may be friends, a spouse or significant other, co-workers, family members including children, or people who act out in negative ways. Remember to exercise your options. Don't get stressed out, and don't rent space in your mind to crazy, rude, or demanding people. Decide what is optional, necessary, or mandatory in your life. You deserve! ~ Les Brown
