BA LA NC E EDITORIAL Editor Sophie Scott Chief Sub-Editor Lynne Maxwell Sub-Editors Natalie Bowen, David Crozier Welcome Editorial Assistant Abi Harman Creative Director Kate Monument Art Director Victoria Ireland Sometimes stopping people/plans/ things in their tracks is the only way to restore a sense of equilibrium and make room for what you really want. Contrary to a lot of pop psychology literature, which promotes that you should jump at every opportunity, learning to say 'No' is essential for wellbeing (unless it involves plenty of fun). I realised the power of those two big letters while holidaying in Ibiza over the summer; 'No, I will not put down this G&T to respond to any more emails'. It led me to think, more seriously, about all the times people had said 'No' to me in my life. As I recalled all the tears and temper tantrums when things hadn't gone my way, I realised how my attitude to rejection and failure has changed over the years. These days when someone says 'No' to me, a small part of me rejoices because it brings me that much closer to the person who will say 'Yes'. In the meantime, I focus on refining my goal. So here it is: if you want to break the mould in anything you do - just ask our cover star, David Gandy, a man who's encountered more than his fair share of setbacks - say 'No' when something doesn't feel right and thank others when they do the same to you. It's often the difference between failure and success.
