Say Yes To Yourself With A Positive No To Others

Listen On

Are you the kind of person who never says no to someone? But then you end up feeling slightly resentful or just overworked or overwhelmed because it’s a little too much? I can totally relate. We need to get ourselves into a place where we can say no but still leave the other person walking away with respect for us. If you want some helpful tips and guides on how to set boundaries and allow yourself to say no, you are in the right place.

(12:32) How William Ury explains this phenomenon. 


(17:15) A word for word guide of how I would say no.
