Today, Jamie suggests us to think about what we want to say “no” to.
Oh Gosh, I know how hard it can be to say “no” to someone we like/love, or just saying “no” because we fear to deceive people, because we have the fear they would think we are selfish or whatever. We have to learn again how to simply say “no” without feeling guilty about it. It is hard, yes.
But knowing how to say “no” is like taking time for yourself, wondering what is really good for you, despite the fact you want to please the others around you. It’s not because you say “no” that you are a bad person.
I wish to say “no” to all the excuses I find myself for not achieving things.
I don’t have time (the most common excuse people give !).
I don’t know how to do.
I’m not good enough.
It’s not how I want(ed) it to be (so I stop before I finish it).
There is always a good excuse to not finish something, and sometimes not even start something. I want to stop this negative cycle.
I may find the book “Excuses begone” by Dr Wayne Dyer to help me through that (note: put it on my wishlist) 😉
