“NO is a complete sentence. It does not require justification or explanation.” – Gary Ryan Blair
Have you ever heard yourself saying yes to the wrong things…never-ending requests of your time, bad relationships, energy draining obligations…and wished you could find a way to summon the power to turn them down…to simply say no?
You have the right and responsibility to start saying no to anything that is hurting you. To anything not in alignment with your values. To the standards that no longer serve you. To the people who drain you of your creativity and peace of mind. To the beliefs that are not true to the real you.
Consisting of two letters and one syllable, the word “No” can be considered to be one of the most powerful words in your vocabulary.
It’s the easiest word for setting a limit, holding firm to boundaries, and being absolutely clear about what you will or will not do.
It is a word of pure power that is both inner and out directed, and one that you must begin implementing each day of your life.
You will be a lot more productive once you recognize these three things…
1. “NO” is not a dirty word, negative word, nor is it a selfish word. Learning to say “No” is liberating as it frees up your time to focus on your key priorities.
2. You are in complete control of how you spend your time and your life. Saying “NO” allows you more time and energy to pursue your goals and wildest ambitions.
3. Saying, “NO,” increases the value of the things you say, “YES” to.
Your success requires a short “Yes” list, and a long “No” list….unfortunately most people have that idea reverse engineered.
You must consciously say yes to the right people…the right habits …the right attitudes…the right time commitments…all the right things that serve to advance you in the direction of your goals.
AND, you have to say no to a long list of other things that take you away from your goals.
To obtain the list of things which you need to say no to…download this manifesto and put the strategies to use immediately.
To take back control of your life and to fast track your goals…you must resolve to give “NO” the strategic influence it deserves for the simple reason that it produces IMMEDIATE RESULTS.
