Say yes to what matters by saying no to what doesn't If you're like most people, saying no probably makes you feel uncomfortable. Maybe you're a people pleaser, and saying no makes you feel like you're rejecting someone. Or maybe you're not naturally assertive and you feel too embarrassed to say no. You may even just want to avoid any sort of conflict, and saying yes seems to be the easy way to go. The thing is, if you always say yes to things you don't want to do, just because it makes you feel uncomfortable to say no, you're unwittingly saying no to yourself and your needs. Eventually, you will feel overwhelmed by all the things you said yes to, but didn't really want to do. This can lead to unnecessary stress and anxiety, ruined relationships, a lack of identity, and burnout. When you say yes to taking on that new project, and end up dropping the ball on your other tasks. When you half-heartedly agree to that sketchy investment scheme your friend is offering you, and lose thousands of your hard-earned money. When you once again go along with your partner's movie choice, even if you don't really like it, and you ultimately forget your film preferences. All these situations could have been avoided if you had just said no. But that's easier said than done, especially since there are emotions and social expectations involved in all our interactions. So how do you say no when it makes you (and maybe others) feel bad? In Master of The Arts: Excel at Saying No, you will discover: How to set healthy boundaries with close friends, family, and romantic partners without feeling guilty about it A simple change in wording that will make it less challenging to refuse someone who asks you for a favor Clear and firm responses you can use instead of saying no that will get your point across and leave no room for pleas or arguments How to respond to your boss without sounding like you're avoiding additional work or shirking from your responsibilities 7 common mistakes that could backfire on you when trying to politely turn down an invitation or refuse a request Why your tone and facial expression could be sending a different message from your words, and how you can align them to send one coherent message The sneaky tactics people use to manipulate you that make it harder for you to say no, and how you can recognize and deftly counter them And much more. There's no need to be afraid of sounding harsh or seeming selfish. You don't have to change your personality or how you deal with people. You just have to shift your mindset and your priorities. It's not about saying no to others, it's about saying yes to yourself. Find out what's truly important to you, and say yes to only these things. You'll find yourself with a lot more time to focus on what really matters in your life.

No is perhaps the most important and certainly the most powerful word in the language. Every day we find ourselves in situations where we need to say No–to people at work, at home, and in our communities–because No is the word we must use to protect ourselves and to stand up for everything and everyone that matters to us. But as we all know, the wrong No can also destroy what we most value by alienating and angering people. That’s why saying No the right way is crucial. The secret to saying No without destroying relationships lies in the art of the Positive No, a proven technique that anyone can learn. This indispensable book gives you a simple three-step method for saying a Positive No. It will show you how to assert and defend your key interests; how to make your No firm and strong; how to resist the other side’s aggression and manipulation; and how to do all this while still getting to Yes. In the end, the Positive No will help you get not just to any Yes but to the right Yes, the one that truly serves your interests. Based on William Ury’s celebrated Harvard University course for managers and professionals, The Power of a Positive No offers concrete advice and practical examples for saying No in virtually any situation. Whether you need to say No to your customer or your coworker, your employee or your CEO, your child or your spouse, you will find in this book the secret to saying No clearly, respectfully, and effectively. In today’s world of high stress and limitless choices, the pressure to give in and say Yes grows greater every day, producing overload and overwork, expanding e-mail and eroding ethics. Never has No been more needed. A Positive No has the power to profoundly transform our lives by enabling us to say Yes to what counts–our own needs, values, and priorities. Understood this way, No is the new Yes. And the Positive No may be the most valuable life skill you’ll ever learn!

What if Jesus were not a supernatural being conceived by a virgin, but a real human being who had experienced the awakening of consciousness known as “enlightenment” in the East? This extraordinary line-by-line commentary on selected Gospels from Matthew and John tests the hypothesis that Jesus was a mystic, not a miracle worker of supernatural origin. Osho convincingly makes the case that the stories of Jesus' life were never meant to be a factual record of history, but rather are teaching parables designed to provide ongoing spiritual guidance for generations to come. I Say Unto You introduces us to a dynamic, compassionate, intelligent, loving Jesus, who speaks in a plain and simple way that everyone can understand. This is not the long-faced, sad and tortured man often depicted down the centuries. Osho looks with a crystal-clear perception at Jesus’ work, inviting us to see the parables and miracles as metaphors of the inner world. He gives insight into Jesus’ own search, and his journeys to the ancient mystery schools of Egypt, Kashmir, and Tibet that transformed him into one of the most evolved masters of the paths of love and meditation, with insights that are still relevant for today's world.

Most people, and even Christians, assume that the existence of disagreement in relationships is painful and unproductive. To that end, they either avoid such experiences or they simply fail to express their honest opinions. Author Patrick Webb reveals that expressing disagreement is essential to reaching one's full potential in their relationships. Dr. Webb provides simple and yet effective strategies, from a biblical perspective, that anyone can employ in order to express disagreement in a productive manner. From engaging in truly honest discussions, to creating productive conflict, Dr. Webb will show the way to true communication and ultimately intimacy through the simple act of Saying Yes to No.
