Saying yes as an answer to everything can do bad things to our day-to-day. Although we want to please everyone, and take every chance we get, saying no can be a good thing. By agreeing to everything, we create stress and insecurities. We put pressure on our schedule to make sure everyone is satisfied. We can’t please everyone, so it’s not healthy to try it.

When it comes to working in a group, the word no can do wonders. People respect those that challenge them. Voice your opinion if you think you should go a different direction. By saying no in a constructive way, you can allow yourself to take control of situations, and see the things that are really important.

A fact that people that we need to understand is that we will sometimes miss out on some opportunities by saying no. From hanging out with friends, or going to a work conference, we may have to miss out on fun times. Don’t fear the word no. It can benefit your life in ways you’ve never imagined.
