You have to engage with transition. You can’t ignore it and yet, you have to manage transitions, too. It’s Ok to say no. It is and I want to really  reinforce that with you. When faced with a transition that goes counter to what you want to accomplish in your life, your career, your relationship, whatever, you not only have the right to say no, you have the obligation to say no. It’s important for you to say no for your own self-preservation. I meet a lot of people who feel that because of obligation or family relationships or responsibilities, whatever, they can’t say no an it eats them up. And often times in talking with them about career stuff, we can’t get beyond their issues that they’re talking to me about because they have a much deeper issue that they’ve never resolved and that is this feeling of obligation. A feeling of being trapped. .
