Why is it so hard to say ‘no’? Where does the ‘Disease to Please’ come from? Why is it so hard to kick? What methods are best for saying ‘no’?
Our personal values are formed from cultural and traditional inputs, a way of mass indoctrination.
We have been taught to be polite and be nice to people. Too nice sometimes.
Pleasing others, and always saying ‘yes’ when you don’t really want to, can leave you feeling resentful, over-burdened and emotionally cluttered.
Thus, this talk explores how to say NO: to work, colleagues, family, friends, neighbours, partners, children, spouses, even complete strangers, and unwanted phone-callers and door-steppers, in a way that is both assertive and effective.
Conversely, how do you know when you really want to say ‘Yes’? Can you say ‘no’ and then change to ‘yes’?
At root, this talk will focus on helping you identify where you say ‘no’ too readily, and how to find the things you really want to say ‘yes’ to.
Also, it will knock guilt, obligation, ought and should on the head and help you learn how to really please yourself.
