Why Saying "no" will garner MORE RESPECT ...

Katrina Hahling

Ahh… saying no can be scary can’t it?

“What if they are hurt?”

“What if they don’t ask me next time? “

“What if they won’t like me saying no and not like ME?”


FEAR OF REJECTION is a core fear when we say YES to things and really mean NO.


What the video below for my tips about why saying NO will garner you more respect AND more invitations.

Short video break down:

  1. Saying no to what is not important to you or what you just can’t fit into your schedule means that you only say ‘YES’ when it is a full 100% yes. People will respect you for this and ask you again because they know you are HONEST.

  2. Saying no to what is not important to you allows you to do more of what IS important to you

  3. Are you a YES PERSON? Meaning you say ‘yes’ and are excited about it before you even think about how this will work? HOT TIP: Say, ‘ooo I love the sound of that, can I think about it and get back to you?’ Then take it away, think about it, does it align with your values? Does it fit into your schedule? Reply accordingly from a space of calm and thoughtful

Why have a morning routine?

Katrina Hahling

Ahh... the morning. 

Honestly, I adore mornings! 

I love being up early,  when the  house is quiet. Using this time to give myself what I need before anyone else is awake. 

My personal routine, on an ideal day, looks like the following: 

// Yoga on the deck in the sun

// Meditation in savasana

// Journaling

// COFFEE 

 

Here's three reasons why a morning routine is so important:

1. Give to yourself first

I mention this in the video. If we wake up and the first thing we do is answer emails, jump on facebook and feed the kids. This is an energetic statement "everyone else is more important than me." 

Switch your phone to flight mode. Give yourself five minutes to an  hour of YOU TIME. Give to yourself first before you turn to the rest of the world.

 

2. A morning routine sets you up on the right foot for a productive day

We all know what it's like getting out of the proverbial wrong side of the bed. Morning routine's set us up in good stead for the day. So  you can turn that mood on it's head immediately and have a positive, productive day. 

 

3. Reducing the amount of choices you make in a day, reduces mental fatigue

Mark Zuckerburg (CEO of facebook) wears the same thing everyday. Why? To eliminate mental fatigue. 

At the beginning of everyday we only have so much mental capacity and willpower. 

Eliminating choices by having your clothes already picked and the first 5-90 minutes of your day planned out actually lengthens and strengthens your mental capacity  - meaning less fatigue. 

Personally, I feel less anxious, less stressed and more positive , more productive on days  I get up early and complete my routine

Better Questions, Better Answers

Katrina Hahling

Are you feeling stuck in a situation?

Stuck in a job you don't like? 
Stuck in finding your true purpose?
Stuck in a relationship? 
Stuck in a rut?

Stop for a moment and examine the types of questions you are asking yourself...

Are they big questions? 
Are they useful questions? 
Are they helping you or hindering you?

Or are they more like...
Why do I always end up in jobs like this? 
Why am I always running out money? 
How come this is happening to me?

When we feel stuck, we also get stuck asking bad questions.
Stop for a moment and take the time to breathe in some new, bigger and bolder questions.

Like, what's the lesson in all of this? 
How can I serve right here where I am? 
What else could be possible? 
What's my ideal outcome?

See how much better these questions FEEL? <3

I believe we all deserve the life of our dreams. We just need to ask better questions so we stay in touch with our heart and soul and understand what it is that lights us up.

Love, Trini x
