The 7 “no’s” that Lead Me to Success
“No” is necessary at work and in our lives in general. It is no coincidence that Steve Jobs believed that success comes through the “no”. The “no” gives you the opportunity not to do things you do not want, while at the same time they open space for you to focus on the important. You can not do it all at once. Only if you say “no” will you be able to focus where you need to be, be effective, and be more likely to achieve great success.
“No” protect your time, energy, and focus. Most people feel the need to say it more often, but in the end, they do not. Usually, they realize that they have to say “no” only after they have not done so.
The following list can help you. In it, you will see the 7 “no’s” that can lead you to success and happiness.

1. Say “no” to your need to always be right
We feel the need to always be right and we can not stand the idea that we can be wrong. In fact, our need is so strong that we do not realize the danger that lurks in our various relationships ends ingloriously because not all people can withstand the stress we have and transmit. It’s not bad to be wrong sometimes. Have an open mind so that you can accept the ideas and opinions of others when needed, and expand your horizons.
2. Say “no” to your need to control everything
You do not need to be in control of everything that happens. Successful people are in control of almost every single situation. And they give their mind and energy there.
3. Say “no” to self-pity
Many people are psychologically worn out because they think they can do it. This leads nowhere. Take the negative thoughts out of your mind and avoid self-pity. You are worth much more than that.
4. Say “no” to whining
Give up your need to complain about so many things every day. For people, situations, and events that made you unhappy, or sad. A wise phrase says that it does not matter what happens to you, but how you react to what happens to you. And if you stay constantly whining, you will not see better results. Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.
5. Say “no” to the impression
Stop trying so hard to impress others and pretend you are something you are not to make others like you. The moment you stop trying so hard to become something different from who you really are, when you drop all the masks, then you will essentially accept yourself and understand that people need to love you for your true self, not for an ideal but false self that you present to them.
6. Say “no” to resisting change
The changes are good, they help us move forward, even if at first they seem painful and difficult. But change leads us to improve our lives and the lives of the people around us. Therefore, follow your instinct, embrace the changes, do not resist them and you will discover their true meaning.
7. Say “no” to excuses
Put excuses aside, because you no longer need them. Many times we limit ourselves, as we constantly make excuses. Instead of looking for ways to improve ourselves, we lie even to ourselves, using all the excuses one can think of — excuses that are 99% untrue.
