Looking For A “No” Man
We have a lot of people in our personal and professional lives.
Unfortunately, too many of them are “yes” men and women. While “yes” people make us feel good, if we’re honest with ourselves, those relationships are shallow and unfulfilling.
Let’s look at the four types of relationships – family, friends, service providers and work colleagues – to see where everyone nets out.
Those Who Really Matter
First are family members. When a family is strong, family members aren’t “yes” people. They’ll tell you straight up when you’re going off the rails. They typically don’t pull any punches.
They have your best interests in mind, no matter how distasteful the advice may sound at the time. Parents, brothers and sisters, your spouse and even your children – all can play an important part.
