“It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.” -Bruce Lee
I liked this so much on my Kindle, I bought a paperback copy to use as a reference for all the exercises included to get us unstuck. In my case it wasn't a failure, job lose or rejection, but the death of my spouse. I spent over two years living in the things that had to be completed before I could truly move ahead without him. Living in what I believed had to be done had me stuck, as well as trying to appease others. After just a few days of following the guidance provided in the book, I woke up early, set to get moving on the projects that I had put on hold to care for others. Read it, use it, and things will change!
This is an important book for many people. Learning how to say "No" to the wrong people, the wrong opportunities, to peer pressure, to the "wisdom" of the crowd, is a key to living a self-actualized and fulfilling life. This book is a manifesto for choosing the life you want, not the one you feel pressured to live by outside forces, family members, and authority figures.
I couldn't agree more with this sentence from the "NO BILL OF RIGHTS" in the book:
"You decide whom you say NO to. You are entitled to choose your tribe, regardless of what society imposes on you. You decide who in your life drains you of energy, and then purge them so you can soar."
I highly recommend this book to those who are committed to self-improvement, self-growth and self-actualization. It's a WINNER and very deserving of 5 STARS!
First of all, it is written by two people who have finally learned the lesson of HOW TO SAY NO. To day no to people, places and situations and to do this for the right reasons without fearing saying NO.
Before I read this book, I would many times say YES when I wanted to say NO and later paid the price for this decision. This book has truly opened my eyes to the beautiful word NO! Each chapter has an new thought, idea and exercise about saying NO to self-sabotage and YES to future happiness.
If you have found you have had a hard time saying NO, then I highly suggest this book. For me, it is a life changer for the better!
Overall this is a very powerful book to help us all, use that one little word, "no", with a little more honesty, because if your not true to yourself, you have nothing to give anyone anyways. Saying "yes", when you really would rather say no, most always turns out bad for everybody. Also a incredible lesson in embracing others choices, when they need to say "no", to you!
Great read! Keep the good work flowing! Kudo's to the Altucher's!!!
