Do you sometimes say “Yes” when you want to say “No” or “Not now?”
Did you know that “No” can sometimes be one of the greatest gifts you can give your kids, spouse, family, boss, coworkers, clients or friends?
It may surprise you that you actually spoil other people’s fun and retard their growth when you do something because you think you’re “supposed to” instead of because you want to.
Since we’re all connected to each other, other people sense your resentment or resistance. They notice you’re not being authentic. Their trust of you transforms into uneasiness or suspicion.
Make a decision to stop “people pleasing” and live as Your Authentic Self. The freedom that awaits you is profound. Begin by noticing what your inner critic is whispering in your ear. Your inner gremlin is that nasty internal voice that creates fear and insecurity by sending you messages like, “They won’t be accepted or liked if I say what I want to.” Your inner critic puts you down with thoughts like, “I’m not good enough.”
