Danger of placing others’ needs above yours

🚷 How many times you put YOUR needs as your last priority? 🚷

I often see successful professionals coming to a huge burnout because of a constant deprioretization of their own needs over the long periods of time.

I also see them losing any interest in their careers, relationships and life in general.

Reasons of this burnout could be different, but here are the common similarities:

1. The benchmark has been set unreasonably high
2. Chasing the success expecting that it will fill the emptiness inside
3. The reality appeared to be very different to their expectations

Whenever you are in your journey, take a moment to pause and ask yourself a very simple question:

“Why I’m doing what I am doing?”

And if the answer isn’t – because I love it. Then something is wrong.
