What do you have to say no to?

What do you have to say no to?
By: Wayne Pratt, CLC

People often think life is about saying “yes” and a person could make a case for this, but I want to talk about saying no. Many people who seek coaching feel overwhelmed,

agreeing to things they don’t care about and really don’t want to do. Why do they say sure? It could be they fear disapproval, they want to be liked at all costs, or they were just never taught that no was an acceptable answer.

When is no the right answer?

When the organization or project is against your belief systems, when your schedule is such that it would mean crowding out what you need and want to do leaving you frustrated and perhaps resentful, or the person making the ask has no investment in your life.

The tele-marketer the survey taker etc. No is your friend!
