The end result of anything you do should be to feel good. If something doesn’t make you feel good, it might be time to figure out if it’s a necessary part of your life or not. My business partner and I have been doing a lot of this sort of soul-searching lately, and really trying to cut out things that don’t make us feel good or serve the bigger purpose.
It’s not always easy but I think its a necessary move to make if one wishes to achieve their business goals. We only have so many hours in the day, there will always be little nuances here and there we don’t enjoy and may not be able to outsource. but most of us could stand to just say ‘no’ to something we don’t want to do.
Is this you? I am reminded of this quote by Abraham Hicks, and how simple but right he is – feeling good is top priority. Try eliminating (or people, etc) things that don’t make you feel good, and see if that helps you. I know it’s helped me, and the clarity that comes along with focusing my efforts and energies on what DOES matter, what DOES make me feel good, is unparalleled.
You are allowed to feel good!
Who doesn’t want to feel good? It’s easy to feel pulled in so many directions with the holidays, in addition to all the other happenings in life. One way to keep it in check is to learn to say NO!
You do not have to attend every party, every gathering, every gift exchange, every cookie swap, and everything else. Your time is not infinite. By saying no to something that doesn’t serve you, or that you don’t enjoy, you are able to say YES to something you DO enjoy!
And since the goal in life is to do more things you enjoy, this gets you closer to that.
Do things you enjoy; things that make you feel good!
How often do you say no? We as society LOAD our plates down, thus creating a task list we can’t unearth from; one we can’t ever truly finish. To keep today’s tip simple, just say NO.
Sometimes we have to say NO to something so we can say YES to something else. No matter how fast or how productive you work, you still get the same amount of time as anyone else. so you have to make it count. By saying NO to something that doesn’t suit your needs or desires, you open up the ability to say YES to something that does.
Say NO today. Buck the system. Take something off your to-do list, and add ‘take a nap”. Or do something that you want to do.
It’s okay to say no. Respecting yourself enough to recognize if something doesn’t align with your goals is powerful, and more of us should do it. Knowing your worth, the value of your time and how it’s best used are priceless.
It’s okay to say NO. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
