This is going to sound crazy. Say yes to everything. Accept all offers. Go along with the plan. Support someone else’s dream. Say :yes”; “right”; “sure”; “I will”; “okay”; “of course”; “YES!” Cultivate all the ways you can imagine to express affirmation. When the answer to all questions is yes, you enter a new world, a world of action, possibility, and adventure… It is undoubtedly an exaggeration to suggest that we can say yes to everything that comes up, but we can all say yes to more than we normally do. Once you become aware that you can, you will see how often we use the technique of blocking in personal relationships simply out of habit. Turning this around can bring positive and unexpected results… Try substituting “yes and” for “yes but” — this will get the ball rolling. –Patricia Ryan Madson
Can you imagine what life would be like if you said YES! twice as much as you do now… or three times as much… or ten times as much? It takes so much more courage to say YES! than to say no. And it takes imagination to envision the possibilities that YES! can open for you. Give it a try for a week and let me know what happens.
