All of us are people pleasers. Even you. From an early age you learn that reward awaits those who "do as they are told" and we continue into this path well into our adulthood. It is only human nature to be liked and fit in and impress and please. Do you ever wonder if you are actually pleasing the right people? Your boss? your kids? Your spouse? your friends? Maybe all of the above. The interesting thing is that we try to do our best to make other people happy but not sure if we often stop to see if we are making ourselves happy. What if every decision you made going forward was based in making you happy? Would your decisions be different or very much the same?
