The Power of Saying No (Part 1)

Welcome to Catching Your Breath: The Podcast, with Steve Austin. Episode 15 is part 1 of a 2-part series called, "The Power of Saying No."

Most children go through a phase where their favorite word is "No". That's because no is a power word. It gives us a definite sense of self. This means saying "No" is an ideal opportunity to rediscover your priorities and sense of who you are.

Until we learn to say "No" we continue to be overwhelmed with too much to do and not enough time. Have you noticed that it's usually important things impacted by not saying "No", like quality time with self or family, our health and our stress levels?

Whether you learn to say "No" more often, or just learn to say "Yes" on your terms, it's time to release yourself from the burden of pleasing others. Give yourself time and freedom to be, and do, what matters to you. Let's get started!

Stay tuned next week for part two, where we'll dive into even more practical ways to say no.
