No/Yes

Posted on 1:56 PM, under

It’s ingrained in us.

“No is the hardest thing to say.”

They say…

Don’t be afraid to tell your kids no.

You’re busy, don’t be afraid to say no to things.

Think about your stress levels.

Think about all you already are doing.

But, I think we’ve created a culture of no.

Strike that.

I know I’ve created a culture of no.

But it’s not negativism

It’s not actual cynicism.

It’s disguised lethargy…or maybe fear.

No means no commitment.

No means no exhaustion.

No also means no great reward.

Yes is a risk.

Yes is an investment.

Yes might just be your next big thing.

Here’s to making yes the new no.
