The single most important and powerful thing you can do for yourself, your life and your sanity is to learn to say “no”…..to say it loud and proud rather than with a guilty hesitation. In my years as a career and life coach and professional development speaker this is the one thing I always come back to. It is something that most of my clients, especially my female clients, struggle with and need to learn for themselves. And it is not easy. We are programmed from an early age not to say no and it takes effort to unlearn all that training. I call it “exercising in the gym of No “.
Last week I came across this great blog by Mike Robbins, which addresses this subject rather nicely, so I thought I would share.
