The Power Of No
1) How many times have you said, Yes, this week?
How many times did you want to No, and ended up saying Yes, knowing that it was something that you might not have had pleasure in doing, or was under time constraints.
2) Why can’t I say, No
The reason we find it hard to say no, is because we do not want to offend anybody.
In this case we focus on somebody else’s need, and burden ourselves.
This kind of decision making tends to come from a place of low self esteem, a place of not wanting to displease at the risk of being disliked. There times when we have to learn to say no, at that cost, which gradually helps us to gain control of our lives and wellbeing.

3) What has No, to do with my finances ?
It has to do with your self discipline.
Being able to say no to spending on something that is not vital to you will save you a lot of money, or No to that pushy sales person,
as they have made their sales or commission and you
are more out of pocket, if you have thought it out and it is benefit to you then a Yes on your terms of your budget would be better.
4) What has No, to do with my relationship.
Start as you mean to go on in a relationship, if it is something that you do not like, don’t pretend that you do.
Take the time out to discuss it, because if you do not communicate this you are already spiraling into a negative relationship that you will not be able to express yourself, but keeping in mind that relationships are about giving and taking.
5) How do I say, No?
Do you think the people at the top of their game always said Yes?
Most people at the top of their game, developed a knowledge of the Power of No.
They had confidence in what they wanted and a lack of fear of being the least favourite.
6) Not for No’s sake, When you can say, Yes.
Now that you understand the Power of No, don’t over use it
say Yes to what you truly want, so do strike a balance that does not make you selfish.
