In the previous post in this series, I let you in on your condition. It’s a common condition that many women struggle with. The symptoms that come along with this condition hinder our ability to give a healthy YES or NO when a request comes our way. Check this out and see which symptom(s) you have.
Far too often we make decisions based on our feelings. Far too little we make our decisions based on facts. Our feelings are influenced by so many different moving parts – past experiences, past hurts, current mood, current circumstances. If we continuously make decisions based on feelings alone, we will get nowhere fast. If we focus on the facts, we’ve got a really good foundation to make some good decisions with our life.
Here are 2 facts that will help you when a request comes your way:
FACT # 1: There is a cost to a YES
When you say YES to one thing, you are saying NO to another, by default. You must decide if it’s worth the cost. This guide will help you.
FACT # 2: There is a gain to a NO.
There is a positive side to a NO that we often don’t consider. Even if there is no competing request at the time, there is ONE big gain to saying NO that I bet you have not considered. This ONE big gain will change the way you look at a NO response. Learn about it HERE.
Next time you are asked to do something, be a part of something, commit to something, pause and evaluate the facts. Don’t give a hasty response based on the negative feelings you have about saying NO. I can help you gain the confidence you need to say NO so that you can say YES to the right things.
If you feel like you can’t say NO, you shouldn’t say YES.
