⛔ I just had to say "No".
🌍 Social connections and bonds with other people are one of our most fundamental needs. Humans rely on reciprocity.
So it's not surprising that "saying No" is tough.
🧠 what if I'm seen as being difficult and pushing back?
🧠 what if someone else seizes the opportunity?
🧠 what if they don't ask me again?
But "saying No" allows you to value yourself more.
🎯 you can be authentic and honest.
🎯 you can set boundaries that work for you.
🎯 you can focus on the important stuff & create new opportunities.
AND you massively improve your mental health and performance.
👉 If you struggle to say no or set boundaries that work for you please reach out to your support network. Or if you are ready to consider working with a Leadership coach please get in touch.
🤔 When did you last say NO at work, and why?
