Trust yourself when something doesn’t feel right. 

Arrgh! Easier said than done, isn’t it?

If you’re a people-pleaser or have this FOMO (fear of missing out) on every little shiny object you come across, trusting yourself to say NO to things is just the hardest thing ever!

But when you learn to practice using your voice because you know that some things are just “no for now,” you create space and room in your life for the things we really want. 

When you learn to trust your instinct, you start to get what you want. 

Today, I’m going to give you permission to say hell NO to the things that don’t have your “hell yes” of approval. And it takes a hell of a lot of practice too!

In this episode, you will hear:

  • What happens when you say “hell yes” all the time
  • The benefits of saying “hell no”
  • 3 pesky barriers that keep you from following your intuition
  • 4 results when you live by this rule
