The Power of Saying "No"

Remember the t-shirts that said, “What part of NO don’t you understand?” I used to get a kick every time I saw that t-shirt. Because, I was the type of person who found the word “no” very difficult to say. And, here was someone who wore it proudly on their shirt... that they were a person who LIKED saying no. Thankfully, I’ve come a long way with regards to the word “no” and while you’ll never see me wearing a “no” t-shirt, you will hear me say “no” more often than not. I bring this up to you now, because “no” is considered an action word. In fact, some of the most challenging actions you’ll take in your business (and life) will be to say “no” to something, or someone.

But, for many conscious business owners, your sensitivity and awareness of others as Divine beings, significantly increases the ease in which you say “yes”... and you don’t even entertain the thought of saying “no, thank you.” It’s understandable that you want to help others, and be of service to them, but saying “yes” when you really feel like saying “no” sends conflicting, confusing and unclear message to the Universe.

So, why is it so powerful to say "no?" Because every time you say “no” to what you don’t want, you’re saying “YES” to what you do want. Saying “no” adds energy to that which you desire more of and sends a clear signal to God that you’re willing to make decisions that support your highest good. Yes, even if that means’s saying “no.”

The biggest barrier you’ll face in saying “no” is the fear of letting others down. When that fear leads you, you let yourself down, and you let God down. You’re not supposed to do things that don’t feel right to you. Remember, your job as a conscious business owners it to keep your emotions and energies up into the higher vibrational realms, and it’s impossible to do that if you’re always doing things you wish you didn’t have to do.

So, start saying no. If it doesn’t feel right to say “yes”, it’s not aligned with your Divine plan. You’ll know when it’s the right thing to say “yes” because it’ll increase your energy, fill your heart and bring a sense of satisfaction to your soul.
