“If the word NO were removed from the English language less people would be successful” – Clinton Jiggetts
NO, is often a feared word. It strikes fear in everyone from toddlers to adults. Who wants to hear people tell them NO? We don’t want to hear NO from our boss, or NO from our spouse, or NO from a friend, or NO from a family member. Society has trained us that YES is the only way to be happy. What they don’t teach is how to deal with the word NO, NO is a very useful word. It serves a great purpose, its definitive, there is no black or white about it. NO means NO. What most people don’t realize is most successful people love the word NO. They love the word NO because it may do one or all of the following;
