How To Say No - Is It Hard To Say No?Okay, let's admit this "Saying NO is mostly hard". How many times did you turn down an invitation? How many times did you agreed for a request... How many times did you say "no" compared to saying "yes".

We often say "yes"to others because we want to please them. We feel guilty whenever we say "no". So, how to say no? Is it hard to say no?

I watched a television talk show before talking about this topic. Some of their tips on how to say no are listed below:

- Minimize, or stop, pleasing others. Be honest to yourself and to that person. If you want to say "no", say it. Remember, you can't please everyone and you have a right to say no.

- Understand first what is being asked before you respond. Ask yourself twice or thrice if you should turn down or not. Reply shortly and honestly.

- Stick to your plan, if you have any. If he persists, stick your position. Be polite in saying no.

Any thoughts?
