An Open Letter To Myself

An Open Letter To Myself

Dear Patrick,

For goodness sake, learn to say “No”.

When it is justified to say “No,” you should be happy and be at peace to say “No”.

It’s about being true to yourself – to know what you should or should not do in life.

It’s about being wise and to know what will bring about the best outcomes.

Friends should understand that as a human, you have your own needs and aspirations.

If they matter, they won’t mind. If they mind, perhaps they don’t matter.

Most of the worries and fears of saying “No” are delusions in your mind.

If you manage time effectively, there will not be any negative consequences, including unintended consequences.

On the other hand, by saying “Yes”, you are tying yourself up against capitalizing on better opportunities.

You are saying “No” to more important callings and contributions.

Learning to say “No” is a key discipline to develop in life and help you achieve the best results.

Learn to say “No” from now on.

Good boy!
