If we uncovered the why and the effects of over promising, would we over promise?

When we over promise:

  • we create excessive worry and stress.
  • we set unrealistic expectations and dead lines.
  • we diminish our self-worth, self-acceptance and increase the need for validation.
  • we question if our best is good enough.
  • we rob ourselves of happiness and self-satisfaction.

When we remain true to ourselves:

  • we keep our promise and deliver our best.
  • we are at peace knowing we gave our best.
  • we increase in self-satisfaction, self-worth and self-acceptance.
  • we are content, thankful and repeat, ‘well done.’
