There's no getting around it. You either hate this word or love this word. Sorry, but that's just the truth.

You are either someone who faints at the thought of using it or who feels empowered knowing you can whip it out anytime.

Which one are you?

Watch this two-minute Fearless Living Boot Camp video and learn something that you must get good at... or the world will walk all over you. (Sorry. It's just the truth.) Get on over and watch it now. You might need to use the word right this minute yet not be sure how to.

That was good, right?

I know: Using that word all day today will burn it into your memory and will give you the confidence to use it anytime you need it, because there really is no getting around it. It is a must. Using that little two-letter word will stop people in their tracks if their plan is to use you up and spit you out. Heck, even if that isn't their plan.

Today's Fearless Challenge is to say NO every chance you get. (Even if it's hard or intimidating or nerve wracking.)

Let's say it together: NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO.

Oh, that sounds so good! Be sure to practice all the ways I taught you to say it -- you know, all the added-bonus stuff I shared in the two-minute video today. That will ease you into saying NO and giving people that bridge they need in order to be able to hear the NO that will come out of your mouth. Because, for some of you, it will be a HUMONGOUS shift.

Be nice to yourself as you are saying NO to everyone. And I mean, everyone. (Okay, not yourself!)

And yes, I know. You might think you are being so mean. YOU ARE NOT. Trust me. Saying no is a skill that must be mastered.

Repeat after me: I AM NOT MEAN. I AM NOT MEAN.

Good. Now, let's get to it. Let's start using one of the most valuable words in the world: NO.

Remember to give yourself some Fearless Living points for saying no today. Yes, after you've watched today's video, go on over to socialworkout.com/fearlessliving and give yourself some points. Is saying NO a Stretch, Risk or Die for you? Add up those fearless points, because soon you could WIN!
