The Power of No

by James Altucher

The Power of No

James Altucher

Overview

James Altucher's universal advice to anyone is to choose yourself first. But to do that, you first have to stop choosing others and letting them choose you. That, naturally, includes saying no. A lot. The thing is, most of us haven't worked on our ability to say no when we need to. We often feel the need to justify ourselves when saying no, as if we owed other people our time and energy. The truth is, whenever someone asks you to do something with or for them, no is a complete answer!

If you've been struggling with being a people-pleaser, this book will help you work on your boundaries and self-esteem and make sure that you put yourself first. As they say in airplanes, put your oxygen mask on before you help others. If you don't love and respect yourself enough to say no when you need to, then there's still some work to do!
