5 Ways To Say “No” To People Making Demands On You

Do you have difficulty saying "no"? Are you always trying to be nice to others at the expense of yourself? Learn to say 'no' may help reduce stress level and give you more time for what's really important.

1) "Sorry that I can't commit to this a I have other priories at the moment."
2) "It is not a good time now as I'm in the middle of something.  How about we reconnect at another rime?"
3) "I can't do this, but I can..." (mention a lesser commitment that you can make.)
4) "Let me think about it first and I'll get back to you."
5) "I'm not the appropriate person to help on this. Why don't you talk to Mr. / Ms. X?"

Tip: Be firm but polite!
