“i imagine that yes is the only living thing.”
― E.E. Cummings
Lifestyle designers, today’s blog is a call to arms. The new year is here and it’s time to way shake things up. The arrow to put in your arsenal this year? Three letters, one simple word – and it comes with big magic: YES. Saying YES more often can change your life. Look back at the past year: how many times did you say no? Now imagine all that you could have done and enjoyed had you said yes more. Makes you think, right? Let’s take a look at how yes can rock your world.
Opportunities are Knocking on Your Door Right Now
Think nothing good comes your way? Think you’ve expended your options? Think again. We live in a world full of opportunity. It’s up to us to filter out what will work from what won’t. The problem most of us have is that we end up saying no to far too much. We say no so often that our front door actually grows cobwebs from saying no to things. If you aren’t fulfilled, it’s time to get used to saying yes!
Get Out of Your Own Way
We say no to protect ourselves. We say no because we are tired. We say no because we’ve lost faith. Well, saying no too much isn’t healthy either. Often, when we get addicted to saying no, we end up feeling empty or lost or even hopeless. Rekindle your faith. Rely on the power of fun to recharge your energy. Open yourself up. Turn that no into a yes….get out of your own way this year!
Learn to Embrace
Saying yes is embracing possibility. To embrace means to be open to whatever happens. It doesn’t mean you lose control or don’t give yourself a way out. It simply means you aren’t shutting yourself off to potential. Opening yourself up to potential….hmmm, that has a nice ring to it!
Yes is so, so much more than just a word – it’s a living thing. It’s the act of embracing life and all the possibility that goes along with it. Learn to embrace the opportunities that life throws at your feet – whether it’s a blind date, a new way to take your coffee or a business opportunity that just might lead to something great!
Key Takeaway for Everyone:
Make Yes your IT word this year. Experiment with the power of embracing possibility wherever you happen to find it. It sounds simple, yet it can radically shift your perspective – and your circumstances.
Key Takeaway for Real Estate Investors:
There’s a lot to be weary of in the world of real estate. Too many gurus, too little time – we know it oh so well…. However, instead of automatically saying no to things that might pan out in really good ways, do a little exploration. Be open to possibility. Embrace what might be!
