“No Means No!”, Meir Ezra

Meir Ezra – Is it easier for you to say “yes” or “no”?

If you are like most people, “no” is more difficult. Saying “no” is like telling someone they are bad or wrong. People might feel rejected if you say, “no.”

However, if you can’t say “no,” you will take detours on your road to success.

“No” Regarding Money

To build wealth you must say “no” at times.

For example, if you manage finances for a business or organization, you probably know how often people try to get you to say “yes.” Yet if you agree to every financial request, your group goes broke.

“It is up to a financial manager to be very, very, very tough and to learn how to say no, no, no, no. In fact, it would be a very good thing if he stood in front of a mirror for ten or fifteen minutes a day saying `no.'”

— L. Ron Hubbard

If you are the financial manager for a business or group, you must say “no” for the sake of your organization.

Even if you do not manage a group’s finances, you ARE the financial manager of your personal finances. You also need to say “no.”
