Saying NO With Confidence

Dec 17, 2019

Life is tough as a people pleaser. Having to say no is one of the most unnatural things to do because at the heart of everything, we want to help and support others in our lives. Sometimes though, it’s just not possible or realistic for us to do so.

At times we let other people’s agendas and priorities railroad our own just to avoid feeling these things. It’s like we would rather say yes to someone else rather than to ourselves {#ouch} and let’s be frank (because you know I love Frank) when we say yes to someone else when we don’t want to, what we are really doing is saying no to ourselves {#truthbomb}...

Like, never. Ever. WTF? I know, it's kind of depressing to realise this.

Even though (deep down) we know this, we continue to beat ourselves up about never finishing 'all the things'. WHYYYY???

Do you know that 80% of the things we accomplish in our day, never existed on our to-do list in the first place? Yep! Crazy hey!!?? They're the things that we do incidentally, or opportunistically or sometimes urgently, due to timing, urgency or something going wrong.

So instead of working SOLELY...
