"No" Is a Complete Sentence: Techniques for Using "No" to Empower Yourself

In today’s business world, we’re battling the clock. Despite all the technology that is supposed to make us more productive, we struggle to find balance between our work and personal lives. We have fewer people sharing the workload, and we’re consistently expected to do more with less.

On top of that, we’re afraid to say “No” to our bosses, co-workers, children and friends, so we overextend ourselves and promise too much.

However, saying “Yes” to everything almost always leads to failure or burn out. If you never say “No,” some of your tasks likely fall through cracks. You complete others half-heartedly and they don’t meet your high standards. Even if you manage it all, you can keep it up only for so long before you burn out.

However, you can drastically cut your stress levels and reduce your obligations by using one magic word: No.

You might believe that saying “Yes” makes you a team player and an extraordinary employee, friend and parent. The reality is that if you don’t say “No” sometimes, you hurt your chances of having a successful career and a rewarding life.

The good news is that saying “No” is a skill and a mindset that you can develop. In “No” Is a Complete Sentence: Techniques for Using “No” to Empower Yourself you will learn how to say “No” effectively—and take back your life.
