Saying no to money.
Can I learn to say no?
If someone wants to pay me money how do I just say no to that?
I respond a bit like someone who has lived through a depression…because I know what it is like when no one wants to pay me money I find it very difficult to say no to anyone who does.
But that can lead to some problems.
Like burning out.
And bouts of sadness.
But I get money. And with that money come lots of options.
I’m not kidding, I know money is not a good motivation to do things…but having choices is pretty darn attractive.
And I also like to be liked.
That’s another of my weaknesses.
Do I want to say no or can I see the trade off and am prepared to pay the consequences in the short term for the bigger goal?
This one is sticky, very sticky.
I’ve got a feeling I might choose to stuff this up just one more time before I really learn this lesson.
