If you are a people pleaser like me, just thinking about the word “NO” might give you chills…let alone actually saying it! So a small step to say ‘no’ to more things so you can say ‘yes’ to the things you really want to do this year is to…be selfish!
According to Inc.com,
Put your needs first. Not those of the person asking you for something. If you prioritize them, you will feel resentment.
Perhaps we can learn from Warren Buffett, who said, “The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything.”
