“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.” Warren Buffe
Helping others Is definetly what I was put here to do. If you wanted a reason why I'd probably tell you something about being a people pleaser, wanting to be liked and a childhood fear of rejection..... I'm totally OK with this aswell..... I Love being a counsellor, its the best thing I've ever done.
That being said, I have my limits..... We all do don't we?
And having limits has meant I've had to learn how to use that "NO" word..... That socially awkward NO we hate saying to people because we believe if we say it everyone will think we're some sort of selfish arse that only cares about themself.... Right???
True Or False?
Well..... If you want my honest opinion I'd say it all depended on how much you valued yourself and time. I know for sure that my life is pretty full up with YES's and Commitments I've already agreed to..... That means what time I do have is valuable.
Understanding this has helped me learn to be OK with saying NO to people?..... and to be honest, it's been a game changer.
Why Say No?
How many times have we said
"I'd love too"
"Not a problem"
