I am not a fan of always being available. Are you? (I currently have a bandage on my finger which makes it a bit of a challenge to type, so please bear with me.) While I have been trudging along my Dream Project path I have wanted to say NO on several occasions. NO. NO! NO? No, I can’t do that-I can’t help you I don’t have enough time. No, I am too busy as a mom. No, I don’t have enough money. No, I am not going to approve that. NO, you cannot have another cookie…
Then I started to think about YES, what if I just said yes to everything? (except the cookie) Then I tried it for a full day, and here is what it looked like… I said yes to the gym, which meant I actually went and did the entire workout, I said yes, to my husband and let him work longer on his project while I fed my son dinner, I said yes, to the phone all day long by answering it (I usually have it on silence and listen to messages). I said yes to my son when it came to sleeping on the big bed, which meant that I had to stay in the room with him… I said yes, to the rude young lady in the corner store. There are probably 10 more YES moments for the day, but I want to get to the point… which is this: Every time I said yes, there was a significant (positive) reaction or feedback… COOL! Now, how does this relate to Living My Dreams and the Makings of a Dream Life?
DUH?! Keyword: POSITIVE. I had an entire day of positivity, bringing me one day closer to fulfilling my commitment to helping 500,000 people achieve 1.5 million dreams! Awesome.
My challenge is staying with the YES… and really knowing when to insert the NO (no more cookies) with a positive manner or spin so to speak. Saying yes changed the muscles in my face, changed my mood, changed the way that I looked at someone, it even changed the way that I drove… COOL, COOL, COOL. Yes, yes, yes.
I question people, I question myself, I question you, are you saying yes, are you one step closer to Living the Dream Life, if not, then I challenge you to join me… let’s say YES together!
Carry on, stay calm, and keep dreaming!
