The 5 Words That Will Simplify Your Life
There are only 5 words standing between you and the life that you want. 5 words that will make your life simpler, better, calmer. 5 words that will give you more time to do the things you really want to do in life. 5 words that will let you do things like go for a hike in the gorgeous spring weather. 5 words that will give you time to spend time on a hobby, (you do have hobbies, don't you?)
I'm here to give you those 5 magic words that can make it all possible.
What are the words? These are the words.
Does it make me smile?
That's it. One simple phrase that will give you freedom. How?
Also simple. Every time someone asks you to do something, go somewhere, volunteer yet again - ask yourself those words.
If the answer is yes, go ahead and do it. If the answer is no, politely decline.
The world won't crumble. Life will go on.
What you are essentially doing is honoring your own self. Which is a vital life skill.
People won't think less of you. In fact, they'll envy you, because you've learned to say no. And they haven't.
Think you may feel guilty? I'd say that's a complete waste of time, but just in case you do - here's a different way to look at it. If you are the one to say yes to everything and every one, you are denying others the chance to do something they really love to do. You are denying others the chance to excel. To shine. In a nutshell, you are being selfish.
The world is full of different people with different interests and different ways to shine. Don't spend your time trying to shine somewhere that doesn't make you smile.
Again, remember - Does it make me smile? If yes - go for it. If it doesn't - don't.
Simple and straight to the point. Why not give it a try?
