I have a wonderful tip today... how to say 'no'. I realize it's not an original idea, but I've been working on it for awhile and I think I've nearly perfected it.
Here's now it works:
- First, you wil need to practice at home. You never know when you'll need this skill and you need to be able to react quickly.
- The word 'no' consists of two sounds... N as is 'nnnnnnever again will I try to wax my own eyebrows' and O as in 'ooooooopen the door for me there are some Jehova's Witnesses on the porch.'
- Now, say those two sounds... 'n' and 'o'. Very good. Say them again. Doing well. Now, here comes the tricky part. Say them a little more quicky and slur them together. 'nnnooo'. VERY GOOD! You're on your way to being a No Pro.
If you practice this technique daily, you'll be better than me in no time at all. I thought I had this method down-pat, but I was wrong-o. I was close, though. I tried to say 'no' but didn't get it quite right and ended up committing myself to doing something that I had no desire whatsoever to do. But I wasn't ready to give up! I called my attacker back and used the 'no' technique on her. It worked! I was glowing with pride. My attacker must've been equally impressed because she reacted in a surprisingly posotive manner.
After that I was pumped up! I called another woman who had lured me into submission earlier in the week. I was ready to say 'no'! However, her line was busy and I lost my nerve and never called back. I apparently need a little more practice.
Try this! It works! Amaze your friends and simlify your life with my easy to master 'no' technique.
