When was the last time you said yes to something you didn’t want to do?

How did it feel, how long did it take, what did it take you away from?

For most of the people I meet, saying yes to things they don’t want to do because they’d prefer to avoid the discomfort a NO brings is a daily practice.

A practice that impacts our happiness, and our ability to live the life that we want.

In this podcast I want to explore with you:

  • the word NO and how using it more often can create the space for more YES around what matters to you
  • 5 simple ways to build your confidence in delivering an intentional NO more often.

If anything I shared in today’s episode struck a chord with you, slide into my DMs on Instagram (@hackinghappy.co) to let me know all the details!
