My Best Yes is NO

My Best Yes is NO

Are you stressed and burnt out and always over committed? Do you identify as a people pleaser?

Are you finding yourself invariably stretched too thin, juggling multiple tasks and responsibilities to the point of exhaustion? Do you often feel like you're disappointing others and yourself by failing to meet your own standards of success and wellbeing due to an overpacked schedule? If so, you're not alone. This presentation is tailored for anyone who's ever felt the weight of the world on their shoulders, simply because they couldn't bring themselves to say "no." We delve into the high cost of saying "yes" too often - the personal, professional, and emotional toll it takes on our lives. With engaging anecdotes, evidence-based research, and practical insights, she sheds light on the underlying reasons many of us feel compelled to overcommit, from the desire to please others to the fear of missing out. More importantly, I’ll equip you with strategies to prioritize your tasks, set healthy boundaries, and understand the profound strength that lies in saying "no." By making selective, intentional decisions, you'll learn to reclaim your time, energy, and peace of mind. This keynote is not just about learning to decline offers or requests; it's about redefining what success and fulfillment mean to you. It's about understanding that sometimes, your best "yes" to yourself and your wellbeing is a firm "no" to others. Join me for an empowering session that promises to transform the way you view your commitments, leading you towards a more balanced, productive, and fulfilling life. Learning Objectives: Understanding the Consequences of Overcommitment: Participants will learn about the personal, professional, and emotional impacts of saying "yes" too frequently. They will gain insight into how overcommitment can lead to burnout, dissatisfaction, and a decrease in overall quality of life. Identifying Root Causes of Overcommitment: Attendees will explore the underlying psychological and social factors that compel individuals to take on more than they can handle. This includes the desire to please others, fear of missing out, and societal pressures to constantly be productive. Strategies for Prioritization and Boundary Setting: The workshop will provide practical strategies for participants to effectively prioritize their tasks and commitments. They will learn how to set healthy boundaries, ensuring they can commit to their responsibilities without compromising their wellbeing. Empowerment to Say "No": Participants will be equipped with the tools and confidence to say "no" when necessary. This objective focuses on overcoming the guilt or fear associated with declining requests, emphasizing the importance of selective commitment for personal and professional growth. Redefining Success and Fulfillment: The session aims to shift the attendees' perspective on what constitutes success and fulfillment. They will be encouraged to find balance and contentment in their lives by making intentional choices that align with their personal values and wellbeing, rather than external expectations.
