Someone I know promised to buy a house, and then before the sale went through, his life and circumstances changed, and it was no longer right for him. He knew he shouldn’t buy, but he did because he had promised. It was painful to watch. He lost a fortune.
What would you do?
Indeed, what have you done when you have decided on something and later realised it was not a good decision.
Would you change your mind and your actions? Would you break your promise?
What if someone changed their mind and broke their promise to you?
Interesting how our perspective changes if we are on the giving or receiving end of the promise!
And of course, maybe you need to say ‘no’ more often. Here’s how.
My best wishes, Paul
