Nip it in the Bud | Royal Reminders

by Cindy Ratzlaff

She suddenly realized that saying yes to everyone else meant saying no to herself. And she decided to nip it in the bud. ~ Queenisms™

This is not an easy thing to do and will require practice.  When requests for your time come your way, get into the habit of saying “Thank you for asking me.  I’ll have to check my schedule and get back to you.”  Then, and this is the hard part, say nothing else.

After you’ve had a quiet moment to reflect on whether or not you want to, are able to and are willing to do what has been asked, go back to the asker and say yes or no.  Giving yourself the gift of time to decide will help you nip that habit of always saying yes in the bud.

If you’re practicing this tool, we’d love to hear about your results.
