This is nothing new. And there are variations of this that we all read over the years. It is hard to say No – to friends demanding time, to that extra bit of work you think you should finish before going to bed, to watching that movie that you really are not liking, , eating that muffin that you thought you would like but – well – not that much. You get the drift. And then there are bigger ones – No to refined sugar, No to binge watching TV (and eating junk food while at it) No to a boss who insists you need to work late to prove you are with it.
Today is a great day to think about all the things you did last year which you later regretted and making a clear and conscious list of those so you are not going through the making of the decision every time situation presents itself.
I truly believe ‘No’ is one super powerful tool that can present you with a life you really want what ever that is. Because without ‘No’ there is no ‘Focus’. Without ‘Focus’ there is no ‘Outcome’.
