I don’t have the time.
I don’t have the skill set.
It’s out of my pay grade.
I’m busy enough already.

When you get in the habit of saying no, are you doing it for the right reasons, or are you making excuses? And if you are making excuses, what are you truly avoiding? The truth? The opportunity? The fear of the unknown?
Saying no is a strength and a positive, but you have to say no for the right reasons.
