Let’s stop being scared to say no.
Saying no doesn’t come easily for many of us. We don’t want to disappoint other people. We don’t want to make other people angry. We don’t want to be rejected.
Many times in my life I should have said no. And I didn’t. Why I didn’t if I knew it was not good neither for me nor my family? Because I sticked to appearances. Because I wanted to create a picture of better myself. Because I didn’t want to lose something I thought I had.
Sometimes we say yes to all arising opportunities without even considering what is really good for us.
Sometimes we say yes to opportunities which ain’t good for us but look good outside.
Sometimes we say yes to opportunities which make life looking better than it is in reality.
Many times I should have said no. But I didn’t. It will never happen again. You know why? Because thanks to a wonderful book of Greg McKeown I’ve finally learned to prioritize. I’ve finally understood what I really want and what is good for me. I’ve finally learned I have to say no to be happy. To get freedom. To breathe.
I strongly encourage you to read this book. It will totally change your life.
We should say slowly yes and fast no.
Have a nice lecture!
