WHY DO YOU HESITATE TO SAY-‘NO’?

“WHY DO YOU HESITATE TO SAY-‘NO’?

LEARN TO SAY “NO”

WE HAVE LIMITS TO OUR TIME, ENERGY AND INTERESTS.

Like saying YES is important in life, saying NO is also equally important, so if you have learnt the art of saying NO– you will rarely be over committed or over extended.

  • You will never have to break a promise.
  • You will never have to compromise.
  • You will never burn out.
  • You will be able to give 100 % on your terms, not someone else’s.
  • You will function at your best and have a little left.
  • You will function at you best and have a little left in reserve.

 

We had a salesman in our corporate marketing group who could never say “NO” in meetings to decide who would call on specific companies, he was always raising hand, saying, “I will take that one”. His files bulged with prospects. The funny thing was, he could sell when he gave himself enough time to do the job properly. But he spread himself too thin.

He ended up doing the company and himself a disservice. The sales he made could not erase all the opportunities that fell through the cracks. He would have been much better off saying “NO”. By taking on less work, he would have accomplished much more.

MESSAGE: IF THERE IS A NEED TO SAY ‘NO’- SAY-NO!!

“YOU CAN BE A GOOD PERSON WITH A KIND HEART AND STILL SAY NO.”

  1. very inspiring.
    I realise that whenever I used to say yes to absolutely everything my friends asked or told me, it was making me a weaker person because I didn’t have that courage to say no. Now, i try to say no when I have to, and this post really helps!

  2. I absolutely agree! Great post – more people need to get comfortable with saying no and setting some boundaries. I think when we do things out of obligation rather than willingness it cause our bodies to resist and get ill. It takes practice and it can be done with a kind but firm tone but once you get the hang of it – it serves you well all of your life.

  3. I think I will have to respectfully disagree with the “spreading yourself thin” when you say yes all the time.

    In my opinion, I think there is a much deeper reason why we spread our self thin when we say yes. Like expecting something in return when we do others a favor and be disappointed when favors are not returned. Or not taking care of ourselves good enough that’s why feel burned out when we grant others too many favors. In my opinion of course. 😅
