Unable to say “NO”? check your motives

Featured image

You’re afraid of hurting people; you’re a people-pleaser.

  • You want to be loved and accepted.
  • The false doctrine that says love never says “No”.
  • You crave to be applauded and appreciated.
  • You are simply complying to and perpetuating a tradition.
  • You’re under peer pressure.
  • You lack the courage to stand alone and be different.

The inability to say “No” could have negative consequences that far out-weigh the above motives for saying “Yes”.

No matter how good you are you will never be able to please everybody, so stop trying.

Let wisdom guide you to say a polite “NO” and a courageous “Yes” as the need arises.

The hardest thing I ever did in my life was try to please everybody; and I failed.

 

Do you often have difficulties in saying “No”? What are your reasons?
