Three Worthy No's
What's a Worthy No?
Saying no to something that is less than is one of the most powerful ways to bring a larger vision to fruition. It requires faith and takes courage to say no when the preferred option is not in view.
This kind of no is not a stubborn refusal to try new things or consider different perspectives. When you know better —when saying yes would be settling— then it’s a worthy no. Each time you say no in this context, your clarity and confidence grows. It reinforces (to yourself and others) what you do want.
Say No Every Time, until...
As it turns out, saying no is really a big YES to something better, perhaps just not immediate. Whether it is a job, a business venture, or time spent with a potential life partner, it’s time to say yes when you sense the situation truly holds the promise of something you deeply desire.
This week, as opportunities arise, ask yourself: Does this situation fit the bill? Is it time to say yes or is this a worthy no?
“It’s a funny thing about life;
— William Somerset Maugham
