It’s got just three little letters, but infinite potential when it comes to opening doors and inviting in opportunities for growth and change.
While it may not be easy to lead with, once you spit it out, you are on the path.
It works best on its own, no buts about it.
It is, by definition, a positive response that can only lead to great results. Even if the outcome is not what you wanted or expected, you are better for just taking that first step from resistance to acceptance.
Behold, the awesome power of YES.
Here’s the thing about yes, though. NO is a much safer bet much of the time. (And definitely when it’s used as a 4-letter word. I’ll totally say YES to saying NO when someone else is forcing his/her will upon you in an uncomfortable or dangerous way.)
But in the day-to-day, no is usually about grabbing the easy way out. Cuts off the risk, saves you from spinning wheels, protects you from possible rejection.
Be honest — and feel free to say NO to this — is that REALLY how you want to live your life?
