Weed out NON-ESSENTIALS in your Super Busy Life

Many of the super busy parents I meet while traveling around to speak tell me how difficult it is for them to say “no” at home and work. This is a universal problem because we fear the consequences of saying “no”. There are a number of reasons why people don’t say “no” when they want to, but the most prevalent is that thay want to be liked and to please others.

Saying “no” is a powerful way to take control over your own life. If you’re more used to people- pleasing then self-pleasing, start by making yourself a priority. You mat initially feel guilty, as manu of my clients have, but eventually, it gets easier as you develop the confidence and ability to use this skill.

There are a number of ways you can say “no”. The best advice I can offer is to keep it simple (no lengthy explanation or justification) and say it strongly (no wimpy “n’s”).

If saying “no” is something you need help with, you can contact Coach Natalie for a free consultation session or schedule a 1-2 hour presentation at your work, church, professional organization, or club so that you can give the gift of saying “no” to your friends and colleagues.

Good luck!

Yours truly,

Coach Natalie
