Do you know which tiny 3-lettered word holds infinite possibilities?
If you answered, “YES” then you are correct!
Both in life and in business we encounter hundreds of questions throughout the day. They start off with the most minute, like should I have a healthy green smoothie for breakfast? And may advance to complex business decisions that can change the course of our solopreneur journey.
Many times, our instinct may be to say NO.
The mind can come up with a multitude of reasons like:
- It’s not the right time
- I can’t afford it
- I’m just not ready
- Sounds too difficult
- And on and on…
I want you to take a minute to dream a little bit with me. 🙂
What if the next time an opportunity presents itself before you allow the first instinct of “probably not” to kick in, allow an immediate “Yes” response.
Breathe into the YES.
Give yourself permission and space to hang out in that zone for a little while. Let your mind wander with excitement.
Be creative, be wild, be adventurous.
One of the biggest limitations of creative mind flow is we don’t give ourselves enough time. I know I fall into that often!
Be generous with yourself.
Don’t multitask when making decisions.
Think of the positive potential – “wouldn’t it be amazing if…”
How does that feel?
It’s a completely different experience than allowing our brains to take the path of least resistance, dismiss an opportunity too quickly, and move on to the next shiny object.
I’m not saying to be impulsive and disengage our reasoning mind.
However, encouraging ourselves to say “Yes” more often is not only empowering, it opens doors that can enhance your life and business.
The more we practice affirmative thought, the more we align ourselves with positive and powerful opportunities.
- There’s no better “time” than when the idea/opportunity comes into your path.
- Many times “affording” something is a relative term. There are so many ways to negotiate, barter, design on a dime, etc.
- If we wait until we’re “ready,” that day may never come.
- And lastly, shying away from something just because it may stretch us is no reason to say no.
If we aren’t moving towards our best selves, then what’s the purpose?
Let’s put limiting factors like time, money, fear, and laziness in their proper place – the back of the line.
Say “Yes” to yourself and watch magical things happen.
If you have a story that you’d like to share regarding saying yes, I’d love to hear about it. Let me know in the comments below.
Until next time…breathe joy,
