The best attitude that accommodates failure is disbelief.
For anybody learning to say "no" currently - learn to say "no" gently and kindly. I let people impose stuff on me, and once I have had enough, I have a very rude way of telling people off.
Watching other people (esp my fiance) saying "no" ever so gently has me wondering how easy life could be if I were able to do the same.
