Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week! 🙂

It may be the end of the year, but we are not slowing down the #GuruTips! Today I’m sharing some information that you may not have even known you needed: sometimes there is value in saying “no.”

Think about it for a sec… are there things in your life that you would probably be better off without? Whether it’s habits, relationships, or even a job, you need and deserve to know when it’s time for you to move on. 

Do you know how to say “NO”? Think about it… It’s a lot harder than you might think. Learn when you should consider letting certain parts of your life go in this week’s #GuruTip from @ActResourceGuru @Ajarae! #ActorsLife #JustSayNo #ShareClick to Tweet This Episode of #GuruTips!

Remember – as the CEO of your career you’re the one who needs to make the tough decisions. You should be able to be confident in those decisions, no matter what they are!

  1. Loved the last bit–letting go of the past! I found this really cool book, “Radical Aceptance” by Tara Brach, and she writes about forgiveness not as saying it didn’t happen or you are letting someone (yourself or another person) off the hook by forgiving. I highly recommend this book!
