Who and What Gets Your Attention

by Christal Fuentes

Who and What Gets Your Attention

How to feel good about giving yourself more time. Do you feel like you are drained with the request of others that you feel you have no time for yourself? Do you also find yourself prioritizing the wrong things and in the end, it leaves you feeling stressed and frustrated?

I’ve been there, done that too. One day I was at my mentor’s house and he asked his usual question, “how is everything?” … boy was he in for a surprise! I’m sure he didn’t think I was going to burst into tears literally shaking because of how stressed and frustrated I really was.

In my blubbering mess, I went on a tangent about how I don’t have time for myself, how everybody wants all of my time, how I can never get anything done, how I have so many things to do that I haven’t gotten done… blah blah blah!!!!!

Have you been there? If not, you lie! I know I hear this from you all too… You may not have been a drama queen about it like me but I know it’s a struggle. So here’s what my mentor said,

“If you were to rank the people who get priority, where would they go?”

Umm, I’ve never thought of it like that, I mean, isn’t it rude to rank people? Especially if its people you care about? His response… No. If they take it as rude, that’s ok because the truth is, you are being ruder to you and your own time.

I never thought about it that way…  and the lesson I’m about to share with you will definitely lift that heavy weight that you may be carrying without even knowing it, allowing you more time, more freedom and less stress.

At the end of this video: Comment your insights and what you have found to be useful. Also, if you have any questions regarding anything we discussed, now would be a good time to ask!

Why am I only seeing this now! Where have you been all my life Christal! This is so me, I often try and am getting better at me time and self love but i do have a habit of putting everyone before myself. I now have my priority list saved in the notes on my phone.
I think I need a TLC weekend to go through every single article i have missed haha #stalker

Sarah SAYS:

Hi Christal,
I really enjoyed and connected with this topic, I learned so much from it, thank you!
What happens though if someone in my life is a priority 3, yet I am their priority 2 and they expect me to reciprocate?
