Ever wonder how people truly excel?

Linda said yes to everything that came her way. She took care of her kids problems. She took on every project her boss asked her, too. Plus, she volunteered for three charities. She felt the weight of all this on her shoulders and developed severe neck and shoulder pain. This all left her wiped out. Something had to change. Linda couldn’t take it anymore. She lost herself.

Highly successful people know when to say “no”. And, they say “no” 90% of the time.

Do you have a decision matrix for what to say “yes” to and what to say “no” to? Too often, we say yes without any careful thought to the consequences. Yes, we love to help others. But, much of the time we sacrifice ourselves in the process. Then, we enable others to not learn how to do it for themselves.

In the next year, where can you say “no” more often so you can say “yes” to the opportunities that light up your soul.

I challenge you to come up with a decision matrix.

Your time and energy is the most precious resource you have. Saying “No” protects your time and energy.

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
