Tools – No

Posted on: March 26, 2010

Practice saying “No” instead of “Yes,” even though it may feel wrong.  Practice this “No” word.  Instead of taking on extra work or picking up after someone else, say “No,” and nothing else.  That’s all you have to do.  No justifying or explaining.  A simple “No.”  This might well be the most difficult word you have ever spoken.  Say it anyway.  You won’t always be chained to saying “No,” but for now it is imperative that you use it.  Once you have done this for a while, it would be a good idea to get out a journal and write about your discoveries.
No is a complete sentence!!
