Important facts about life: “No.” is a complete sentence that does not require explanation or justification. For those of us who love to please everyone, you need to learn to say no sometimes without explaining yourself. The power of saying no is stronger and harder than saying yes. We have limits with our time, energy, and interests. We must prioritize and allocate accordingly. In the past, I be realized every time I said yes when I truly meant no, I set myself up for self-sabotage. You must identify and put your needs first. Setting boundaries is a way of caring for yourself. It doesn’t make you mean, uncaring, or selfish. It’s caring for yourself, which is a necessity. You live under no body’s requirements but your own. Don’t overextend yourself. Be knobs to yourself and know your limits and abide by them. “The art of leadership is saying no. Not saying yes. It’s very easy to say yes.” -Tony Blair.
