Last week's blog was a bit long so I'm keeping it short this week.
I'm running a course today on confidence and assertiveness skills so thought I would share one of the elements I use. The course is based on our rights, and one of the rights that many people say they struggle with is the right to say 'no'. Whatever the situation (work, home, friends), or request, saying no - particularly without feeling guilty - can feel tricky. So here are some questions you could ask yourself when considering your response to being asked something you might not want to do:
1. Is it a reasonable request?
2. Is it a priority?
3. Do I want to do it?
4. What are the consequences of doing it?
5. Can I accept the consequences?
Most importantly, remember to pause and breathe before giving your response.
Good luck! And let me know how you get on: I love hearing your thoughts.
Save the date: the next mini retreat on your doorstep is about 'switching off' and sleeping easily; it will be on Saturday 16th January 2016. We're moving venues to have more space for everyone. Booking details will be on my website soon.
