Why You Should Say NO More Often

By on June 17, 2018

Most people are keen on saying yes all the time, but not a lot of people like to say no. The thing is, you should be saying no more often than you say yes. The reason you should be saying no is that your time is valuable. When you say yes too often, you’re giving up your time that could have been better used elsewhere.

There’s nothing wrong with saying yes to things important to you, but you also have to get your priorities straight. If you don’t have your priorities in order, you will waste time. You may not think saying yes today will affect you, but if you compound it over time, you will find out you haven’t ended up at the destination you intended. I don’t think you want to end up at a destination in which you never intended to be at. The only way you make sure that doesn’t happen is if you say no more often!

You need to remember that this is your life. You’re not responsible for anyone else besides yourself. Don’t be afraid to say no. People will respect you more for saying no than saying yes all the time. Don’t become the person who says yes just because they don’t want to hurt the other person’s feelings. The person won’t be offended and don’t make up an excuse for when you say no. Tell them straight about how you’re feeling.

When you say no more often, you’re creating boundaries in your life. By creating boundaries in your life, you’re able to get more done. When you get more done during the day, you get closer to achieving your dreams because your actions will compound. You need to create boundaries in your life if you ever wish to become successful. Ask yourself if you’re where you want to be, if the answer is no, then you need to say no more in your life!
