One Minute Motivator # 448

This phrase will save you from pushy people.

Say “I’ll get back to you” when you get an unreasonable request from someone.

Many of us have a hard time saying no to unreasonable requests. We give up control and get pushed into something we don’t want to do. If you can’t say “no”, you can delay them by putting them off. Chances are this will buy you the time to avoid getting involved. Or at least come up with a reason to really say no.

Who can you try this out on right now?

Helplessness stops your progress cold, here is how to put yourself on the right track.

The use this sentence template, fill in the blanks and say it to yourself. ” I used to believe that I was helpless at _________, but now I am getting better at ________ every day.” The key you have to actually take some small action every day. If you do this, you are on your way.

Why playing the victim really holds you back.

We all have times when we are a legitimate victim, but there are times when we play the victim and this hurts our progress.

When we play the victim we avoid taking responsibility for something and it is only by taking responsibility that we can fix something. As a victim you don’t have control over something. Control is key to success though. As a victim you are waiting for someone else to save you. This may or may not happen and then you are stuck in a losing position.

What is the biggest thing you have been a victim of and how can you turn it around by taking control.
