Saying No

Do you hate to say no? Do you often find yourself saying yes because you don’t like to make others feel bad?

Well, I do, and I can relate. I used to be terrible at saying no until I realized that continually saying “yes” was digging myself into a ditch and led me with little time for my personal goals and relationships.

In this episode of The PE Podcast, I share 6 tips to say no that I’ve been applying, along with personal examples:

  • Tip #1: Know what is you want to say yes to
  • Tip #2: Know that saying no is okay
  • Tip #3: Many little yes’es to irrelevant things, or mildly relevant things, even if small, can deviate you from your main goal
  • Tip #4: Be honest about it
  • Tip #5: Give alternatives (if you like)
  • Tip #6: Do a life audit if you’re getting a high noise signal
