In my last three video-clips and in the next three clips from this summer, I explain why it is so important to say “NO” when taking decisions in life. You may check it out on my Youtube Chanel.
Saying “NO” is becoming very important when you will have to say “YES”, to one option! If you choose a new goal, a new offer or a new chance for change in life which will make you say “YES”, on the other hand you will have to say “NO” to the other options. Saying YES once, makes you turn away from everything else.
Sometimes it is hard to say “NO”, probably to yourself, which is part of self-discipline. If you have trouble saying “NO” strictly, to others or to yourself, you may need a good method to learn it.
I´ve been through several bad situations in life which were pain driven. Some felt so bad when I had to say “NO” simply, ´cuz I couldn´t run away from those situations. I had to stay and fight for myself to keep the pain low, or to even convince the opponent to stop offering this new “painful” situation. I struggled to find a STOP button!
Unfortunately I had no strong arguments back then for this “no” so I had to find a way to be persuasive …. in front of M.D.´s….. no easy thing! Looking back, I realize today that I was acting in various roles, which helped me becoming strong after passing those situations (tests?).
What roles am I talking of? Okay, this is what I had to “be” (not play) when arguing for me and for the better:
- I was acting like a professional defender ( in court ), with and without arguments. I had to stay cool, communicate kind, come up with arguments or with comparisons to my past just to be convincing.
- I was acting like a professional prosecutor, putting my own values in front of me like setting hurdles for the opponent to keep him on distance. I had to be aware what was important to me, like arguing with my own law.
- I was acting like a great journalist, always researching and travelling to be armed with information or matching comparisons.
To learn what it takes to be a great journalist, a great defender and a great prosecutor, I was watching Hollywood movies of those topics preferably. Actually, I liked those topics most – in the beginning – honestly not knowing “why” I was so fond of it.
