The No Quiz!

How many times do say yes when you want to say no?

How many of these thoughts which stop you saying no assertively, do you hold in your head?

  • If I say no, they’ll never help me when I need it.
  • If I say no, they won’t like me.
  • If people don’t like me I’ll feel worthless and get fewer opportunities.
  • My needs are not as important as theirs. They must take priority. I can’t say no.
  • I mustn’t be rude or unhelpful (particularly if to a senior manager or older person).
  • How dare they ask me that (prompts an aggressive response).
  • These people are taking me for granted-I’ll show them. (Aggressive again).

If you ticked just one of these, take a look at my article on How to Say No. And if you have some tips to share on being more assertive, or found something that works well for you, please do share them with us!
