Saying 'No' Is Liberating

Sept. 27, 2019

Let's talk about NO. Your entire life story can be narrowed down to whether you say 'yes' or 'no'. Every day, every conversation, every meal, every game you play, each picture you post, they all require you to say yes to something and no to something else. I love it when people say yes, because that means you are opening a door to a new experience. But I also love it (maybe more) when people say no, because that can mean you know what you want and [this thing] is not it. The bad side of no is when we are apathetic or entitled. The worst side of no is from a place of comparison. The best no is said with confidence. The joy of no is being liberated to do what you are made for. The best 'no' is about no longer doing something because it is what you ought to do. One of my favourite questions to ask during a coaching session is all about the NO. “If you’re saying yes to this (goal), what are you saying no to? The power of no, allows for the best yes. When we say no in confidence we are saying yes to opening a new door. You can say now. You can create that boundary. This is your permission. Create a healthier life by saying no more. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
