Take pride in your goals

“Be proud saying no,” says Dorsainvil. “Be proud of your reason behind saying no. Take ‘I can’t afford that’ out of your language. Because you can afford it – you’re just choosing to direct your money a different way.” Removing the “I can’t afford it” language and adding in, “I’m re-directing my money over here” removes some of the shame around saying no, and makes it easier to say no.
