Two tiny, bite-sized words that have enormous superpower for standing in your power. How do these two word roll off your tonguetongue tongue ?
For many of us--we've struggled all our lives with this. We were told told ME is selfish and if we didn't have a good enough reason, NO is not an option. Well, when we know better--we can do better. These words need to be our new bestie as we stand in our power. We got so disconnected along our development, that we stopped listening to ourselves and started listening to everyone else.
Just say these words in your mind. Aloud. What sensation do they give off? The truth is it will take a long time for all power-givers to feel natural using them. But once we get reacquainted, we'll get better at it.
Just days ago, I struggled with a big decision to work on a project that I am personally invested in, but the conditions, the team and program design were big, red flags. My NO was based on how uneasy I felt the more I learned about it. It was tough! Especially, financially and that it will disappoint people. But, I chose to stand in my power. I trust the right project will come across and I won't be over stressed and frustrated (aka low vibe) from this one. NO and ME do not make you a bad person, they make you intentional and free to be yourself.
