On ‘Mental Breakthrough’, host Jessica Reyes and guest life coach with a master’s of counseling Alisa Harp discuss what it means to be a people-pleaser, the downsides of this behavior, and how to break free of the habit.

Understand your motivation

Are you saying “yes” because you genuinely want to, or because you fear disappointing others?

Self-esteem is key

Remember, you have value even if you aren’t always helping others.
