The month’s theme is “The Journey” and we’ll spend your entire month studying discover our means whereas we’re on our means!
Final week throughout Chat #285: The Journey to Learning How To Say No, I requested if I instructed you studying to say no actually means discovering methods to say sure would you agree or disagree? (or shake your head and suppose I didn’t get sufficient espresso immediately LOL)
Tuesday evening throughout our in particular person workshop, we spent loads of time commiserating about instances that we needed to say no to one thing even when we didn’t need to . After which spent much more time realizing what it helped us say sure to as a substitute. Right here’s how:
When somebody or one thing needs extra time than you could have accessible…
This could possibly be so simple as a request to gather cash for flowers for a neighbor, or as emotionally difficult as a toddler who needs your consideration when there’s water pouring out out of your cupboard. Belief me I do know from expertise.
Saying NO to heading up the flower committee this time let my buddy Jacci say YES to finishing a mission she had a deadline on and a bonus YES as a result of it allowed one other neighbor to satisfy some new households whereas taking on the cash this time.
And a mild NO to Alyssa to play whereas I used to be on my fingers and knees making an attempt to determine why water was pouring out from Casey’s sink allowed me to say YES to getting it below management earlier than she had any water injury.
While you actually need to say sure, however know you need to say no…
This one is hard for positive. You need to do no matter it’s. Otherwise you felt obligated to assist, hear, do, no matter it’s…however you realize deep down you actually ought to say no this time.
I ended up with a cat that means final week. That cute little orange and white face pleading desperately the entire means it adopted me house. It took each little bit of power I needed to say NO to Casey, NO to Alyssa, NO to myself…he was soooo cute!
However guess what? It let me say YES to an exquisite younger school woman who was in search of her first cat and he was PERFECT! He wanted some TLC, she desperately needed a kitty, it was a YES made in Heaven. And fyi, his new title is Rocky (for Rocky High since he’s orange and white) and he now has a clear invoice of well being and the sweetest little bowtie collar.
While you didn’t need to say sure to start out with…
You’d suppose saying no whenever you actually don’t need to do no matter “it” is can be simple wouldn’t you? These of you it comes naturally to have a present. I’m not a type of folks.
However, studying to take a breath and say NO thanks when somebody gives meals you actually didn’t need or NO to going to an occasion you care nothing about can result in a YES, let’s do lunch one other day! Or YES, why don’t we take that journey to the brand new JoAnn’s to buy yarn once we are each off from work?
Don’t really feel responsible saying no, you could possibly flip it right into a sure that you just each will actually get pleasure from!
