Thank you so much for your interest in The Insight, by Sheba. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blogs about “Yes.”
Next week’s topic will be “Satisfaction in Relationships.”
Friday Review: Happy Reading!
- By offering a “yes” response, you open yourself up to opportunity and create an open path for communication. When creating your own terms, you create room for compromise and eliminate the room for error. Complete this statement when trying to make a decision – “The only way I would say yes is if….” It’s empowering.
- Saying “yes” can open up an entire world of opportunity, but sometimes we need a little extra push to comply. Keep your audience in mind when determining which if not all of the “Six Weapons of Influence” you can use to reach an agreement or to gain compliance.
- Saying “yes” won’t always turn out the way we want or expect it to, but to completely give up on “yes” would be to give up on opportunity and improvement. Remember that you are more than capable of overcoming any obstacle set before you. Take the steps to strengthen yourself and learn resilience. The right “yes” is out there and waiting for you!
- Excuses simply allow us to justify a lack of effort toward goals. By rationalizing irrelevant excuses we become the obstacles preventing success. When making the decision whether to say “yes” or making excuses to say “no,” focus on your goal for clarity. Eliminate excuses, and create new paths around the obstacles in your way!
The Insight: There is no guarantee for success, but if you never say “yes” you will never reach success. Step out of your comfort zone and say, “yes” to opportunity. You can always set up the terms for your agreement, but remember to stay positive. Avoid making excuses; they’re about as effective as saying “no.” Say “yes” to opportunity and adventure!
Have a wonderful weekend!
