Saying Yes!

Are You Ready to Say Yes?  All week I've been focusing on the importance of saying no. But, I want to talk today about saying yes!

I really enjoyed the 2008 movie Yes Man starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel. It's about a man who lives a small life until he starts saying yes to everything that is asked of him. His life then grows.

So, when is it best to say yes and when is it best to say no? 

Ya got me. 

Sometimes I think this question is what life is all about. 

When Saying Yes is the Most Alive Choice

Say YES when something: 

Makes you excited. 

Makes you nervous, but in a really great way. 

Makes you joyful.

Is playful. 

Brings about the possibility of growth. 

Helps bring more understanding. 

Gives you an opportunity to empathize more. 

Goes beyond your comfort zone in a way that is positive for the whole of your life. 


Saying yes is a risk. 

But, all life is risk. 

When was the last time you said yes to something that was out of your comfort zone? What happened?
