There was a time in my life where I was scared to say YES to new opportunities. That was silly. I didn’t realize that I was blocking so much positivity, so much excitement and so many new adventures by saying no. Saying YES can never hurt. I mean, you still have to use your common sense. You don’t want to start saying YES to questions like 'do you want to jump into a pool of sharks?' Cause I'm sure lots of you would get a question like that???
Point is, say YES to good opportunities. Don't be lazy, or shy, or don't think you're not good enough! Because if someone has asked you to do something, you are obviously capable of doing a good job, even if you don't think you are.
At the start of this year I decided I was going to say YES more.
YES is such a positive word so surely it's got to be good for you!!! And it has been good. I have done so many more things than I would usually, I have met so many more people and I have learnt a lot.
Sometimes you don't realise how much you're saying no. You can be saying no to little things like 'do you want to go for a walk?' or 'do you want to try a fitness class with me?' or 'do you want to take a trip down the coast?'
At the time it seems like nothing, but all those little no's add up to one big no and all of a sudden you have missed fun opportunities in your life.
So, try and make an effort to say YES MORE! It's fun, I promise. One thing that I have said YES to recently was doing an interview for the Girl'ology Podcast. At the time of saying YES I was unsure if I was worthy of such a long interview to be aired on radio.
But I am worthy! And so are you.
You are worthy, ready and successful enough for any kind of opportunity that comes your way. So I did this interview, and it has opened me up to several more opportunities already and I'm so thankful! Saying YES attracts more YES situations into your life. All the Universe is hearing is you saying YES, so you will be provided with bigger and better opportunities everyday! Just you wait.
