30 Dec How to Live an Authentic Life
There’s a pretty good chance you’re not the same person you were six months ago but you’re still living the same life you were two years ago. We expect ourselves to change but we’re terrified of changing our lifestyles in any way to match our growth. It’s time to stop saying ‘yes’ to the life you’ve outgrown and raise your standards of living.
Comfort in Mediocrity
“Your capacity to say “No” determines your capacity to say “Yes” to greater things.”– E. Stanley Jones
The Art of Saying No
- Every time you say ‘yes’ to living a lifestyle which isn’t fulfilling you, you’re saying ‘no’ to taking a risk and finding a more fulfilling way of living.
- Every time you say ‘yes’ to meeting up for a coffee with that friend who emotionally drains you and pulls you down, you’re saying ‘no’ to moving on and making more impactful and meaningful friendships with other people.
- Every time you say ‘yes’ to your boss when you don’t want to or can’t do the job to the best standard, you’re saying ‘no’ to living more authentically and honestly.
