“Sometimes we receive the power to say yes to life. Then peace enters us and makes us whole.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
You’re overwhelmed. You’re stressed. You have too much on your plate. There aren’t enough hours in the day.
Obviously, you’re bad at saying no. You take on too much and don’t know how to get it under control. If you could learn to say no, everything would improve.
But what if you started saying yes?
What if you figured out how to say yes to all the good things?
Yes to the projects that genuinely excite you, yes to quality time with family and friends, yes to self-care and relaxation, yes to personal growth and learning. As you become comfortable saying yes to these, you’ll naturally start saying no to the things that don’t serve your best interests, be it an overbearing workload, unnecessary commitments, or simply a lack of time. In the process, you’ll learn to prioritize yourself and your needs.
Shift your mindset, and say “Yes” to all the good things in your life.
