Have no fear, I’ve got some great tricks to help you feel confident in any situation.

You deserve to be treated with respect, but you have to show up for yourself first. I was tired of living in fear and feeling fatigued so I learned some skills to start saying no without freaking out afterward. This video is a quick guide to some of my favorite techniques for speaking up with confidence. Don’t forget these truths when you get anxious or uncomfortable saying no:

  • I have the right to be uniquely myself
  • I have the right to change my mind

 

Start Saying No With Confidence

Confidence starts when you stand up for yourself and exercise your right to just say, ‘nah.’ Think about how you should be treated, what you deserve, and how you want to feel. There is no reason you should put up with anything less than that: you DESERVE respect and positive self-esteem.

So how do you feel confident saying no and asking for what you want? Watch this quick video to feel confident in the skin you’re in, know when to put your foot down and respect yourself and your time.
