Learning to Say “No”
As the holidays approach, our schedules often get busier than normal, and our energy is pulled in multiple directions. This often leaves us feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, and depleted.
While I used to think of myself as the Energizer Bunny––able to do all things, for all people, at all times–-it cost me––my relationships, my health, and more. I had to learn to say no to what wasn’t in alignment with my highest good––my priorities, my goals, my well-being.
No = Success
And I’m not the only one who believes this. Many successful people tout the power of saying “no.”
One of my team members, Kathy Sparrow a/k/a KK, is a mentee of Jack Canfield, author of The Success Principles,™️ and co-founder of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series. KK recently shared this excerpt from one of his newsletters:
Saying no doesn’t make you a bad person–it simply means that you care about prioritizing your time and energy so that you’re able to devote it to the things that matter most to you.
When you say no to the things that don’t give you the joy you want or don’t serve your ultimate goals, you’ll open yourself to the opportunity of saying yes to the things that will give your life more meaning and more fulfillment.
~ Jack Canfield
The Blessings of Yes
So many of us who have spent years, even decades, saying yes to earn the love and approval of those around us––even those who might not be the best people to have in our lives-–need to learn to say “no.” For when we do, we open the space in our lives to receive a multitude of blessings.
