Much advice suggests that, if you want a life of abundance, always say ‘yes.’ Be open to all opportunities. Engage fully with the world through ‘yes.’ As the advice goes, ‘no’ will create the opposite in your life— scarcity.
I do believe that yes is a powerful and useful response in most situations. Of course, it can also get you in trouble with overcommitment and a loss of credibility. Nobody can do everything they say ‘yes’ to.
So why would we say yes to everything? And how do we do it without getting in trouble?
Today’s article takes the form of a 6:30 minute audio recording.
NOTE: Here’s the other problem with YES:
I’ll be the roundabout
The words will make you out ‘n’ out
And change the day your way
Call it morning driving thru the sound and in and out the valley
These lyrics compel me to sing in a high-pitched imitation of Jon Anderson. That’s a problem, right?
