Why You Need To Stop Being A People Pleaser – Mindset Monday

“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.” – Aristotle

Are you someone who doesn’t like confrontation?

Would you do just about anything to avoid being in an argument?

Have you been walked over by people on and off throughout your life?

Are you overly concerned about what other people think of you?

Trying to please EVERYONE is a recipe for stress, misery and frustration. And I hate to break the news but – you will always disappoint someone…

Don’t let it be yourself.

Aesop’s Fable: “The Man, The Boy and The Donkey”

people pleaser, please, people

I’ve always liked this story as it perfectly conveys how it’s just not possible to please all people. Some people keep trying and trying, but you inevitably wind up miserable yourself.

A Man and his son went to market with their Donkey. As they were walking a countryman passed and said: “You fools, what is a Donkey good for but riding?”

So the Man put the Boy on the Donkey. Soon they passed a group of men and one said: “See that lazy Boy, he lets his father walk while he rides.”

So the Man ordered his Boy to get off, and got on himself. Then they passed two women, one of whom said to the other: “Shame on that lazy lout to let his poor little son march along.”

The Man didn’t know what to do, so he placed his Boy up before him on the Donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and passers-by jeered and pointed at them. The Man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at. The men said: “Aren’t you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor donkey with you and your large son?”

The Man and Boy got down and didn’t know what to do. They thought and thought, until they cut down a pole, tied the donkey’s feet to it, and raised the pole with the donkey to their shoulders. They went on in the middle of the laughter of everyone who met them until they came to Market Bridge, when the Donkey, wiggling and moving around, caused the Boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle the Donkey fell over the bridge into the water and drowned.

“That will teach you,” said an old man who had followed them: “Please all, and you will please none!”

My Challenge To You

“If you live for people’s acceptance, you will die from their rejection.” – Lecrae

What do YOU want?

Who do you want to be?

What is holding you back from having it all?

people pleaser, please, people

Here’s the deal – you are in charge of your life. And that includes how you think, act and SHOW UP every day.

Trying to please everyone is impossible – and unnecessary.

Take time to develop the courage to speak your truth – no matter who is listening.

Be yourself. Come from a place of love. I promise, the world will adjust. And you will be happily fulfilled in the process.
