Decide beforehand how you’ll respond

When temptation comes, don’t be surprised. Treat it like a person. Say something like, “Oh, it’s you. I was expecting you. I can’t take your call right now, so why don’t you come back later?”

Say no so you can say yes

When you say yes in these ways, you’ll discover you’re a lot more creative than you thought. You’ll find strength you never knew you had. And perhaps most of all, your gifts will open doors that have remained closed or even invisible until now.
