1. Saying No to Social Pressure
The key to saying ‘no’ to this pressure is ABC
When we were children we were taught to be polite, to be nice, and to say yes at all of
the wrong moments. This leads us to be pressured by colleagues, institutions, bosses,
friends, and family to attend to their needs.
Acknowledge what they are
pressuring you into
View these opportunities
as education. View these
obstacles as ways to learn
how to grow. Without
learning to say no, you can
never learn to say a true
yes to you.
“I have to leave in five minutes.”
After a few minutes, leave.
