“No” is a word toddlers learn at a very early age and continue to use as they grow during the teen years but somewhere along the way we turn into adults and all of a sudden, we’re people pleasers who lose track of our personal boundaries and can’t say no for fear of disappointing someone or being reprimanded. As an adult however, it’s harder to say no because your paycheck depends on you performing certain tasks, others are counting on you to buck and do the deed and sometimes it befits your family for you to be in the game. But in some aspects, you’ll discover that not every project, task or favor is a good fit for you. Give yourself permission to say NO to those things that don’t light you up.
Developing a good instinct for knowing what will be a good fit and what won’t takes some time and experience. Just know it’s okay even if you aren’t great at it to start. If you take on a task that seems to drain you, make a note of it and learn from it for the next time. If you don’t do something that later you realized you might have enjoyed, make a note of that too! Remember you are still growing and learning and you change in the process. What you might have liked at one time, you might not like anymore and vice versa!
“No” is a powerful world in our personal lives. How many times have we volunteered for something only to dread it? Even with family members we have a tendency to not want to disappoint so we agree to do things, rearrange our schedules, and then complain when it’s not as exciting or fun as we expected. You are allowed to say no and you don’t have to give an explanation. Enforce those boundaries in your business and personal lives and people will learn to respect those boundaries.
