Episode 22: The Power of No
Many of us were raised with the philosophy that saying yes gives us value. We always want to be helpful. We want to be positive. We don't want to deal with conflict and confrontation. Saying yes seems to be the path to all of these things.
What we've learned over our lifetimes is that saying no just may be even more important!
Today we talk about the Power of No in our lives.
1) We only have so much to give. When you say yes to something, you say no to something else. Which is more important?
2) Observe your behavior when you say yes. If you're not sure, "Sleep on it."
3) Build up your NO arsenal. Work on all the ways you can say no while still maintaining a positive environment around you.
