Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity Than he who is perverse in speech and is a fool. Proverbs 19:1
You ever wonder why people choose to deny themselves the right to say no?
Case in point, someone ask you to do something for them and in your heart, you know that this request isn’t something you want to do. Your heart is right but your lips don’t say no.
Yesterday, I had an important meeting with someone offering me a business opportunity. The monetary was small but the opportunities in accepting this offer would allow me to have an inside track to bigger and possible lucrative revenue.
Mind you, I am in no position to turn down increasing my income but it hit me suddenly that my heart was not in it, nor was the opportunity meant for me.
The offer was extended and I informed the person that I would think it over and get back with him with my answer.
As I drove through hard downpours of rain, my mind was already made up. I would not accept the offer. It isn’t because it was little money but rather, it would have gotten little of me. The offer was for me to give them 100% commitment to do something I walked away from years ago. And the reason being is that this type of assignment burnt me out.
When I arrived home, I found solace in knowing that this time in my life, I don’t have to just turnover and do things I do not choose nor desire to do.
Life whether you are young or old, makes you realize that you don’t have to always be agreeable in order to get along.
Here it is in this small sentence below.
Don’t let your No be yes!
It can save you a great deal of hardship both mentally and physically.
