#253 – Instead of saying no, say this doesn’t work for me. from: The Power of a Positive No by William Ury

Ury recommends coming up with the above phrase to help you stand your ground. Two other possibile phrases you can use,  “I prefer not to,” or “I’m no longer willing to do that.” Repeat as needed. If you’ve been slow to respond, you can say, “I’ve given it some thought and my answer is no.”   Don’t worry if you don’t do it perfectly.  It gets easier with time.

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
