“The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say “no” to almost everything.”
One of most important lesson in the last nearing four years, is when to say no, and not feel guilty. My husband and leader has done such a good job navigating my over-creative, over driven mind and schedule to slow down. Although our schedule is still incredibly tight, I have let go of guilt and been able to focus solely on what I feel is my purpose. Although exhausted often, I feel my exhaustion has been exchanged by an extreme sense of fulfillment and sense of “balance” in controlled chaos.// You can do everything, but you cannot to everything well.|| Being unapologetic about drowning myself in this journey has set me so free, and free to continue to develop this dream. Encouraging you not to feel guilty when you have to say “No” to good things, to say “Yes” to the best things.
As a society we have accepted all this responsibilityto things and problems we have no business attaching our valuable time to. We are here, to serve a purpose, each one of us. At times, it is easy to be intoxicated with all that is going on around us instead of what is going on IN us, and through us, our time and our talents. No one ever asked us to be “busy.” We are here to be FRUITFUL.
Achievement requires focus. And focus means saying “no” to a lot of distractions. Stay unapologetically focused.
