I just came off another fantastic week of education on business, marketing and entrepreneurship. It’s so good to see great mentors and friends, to take time and learn from many who have done things in their lives and made success from what life handed them.
A theme that struck me last week while at this event was something that I need to apply more in my life. I was reminded of this from my mentor and friend, Craig Duswalt, as well as many other teachers like Les Brown, James Malinchak, and Loral Langmeier, who coach people on being successful, excelling in business and managing money well.
The one thing I need to apply that they teach is to just say “yes” and find a way to make it happen. My wife has this down; she is the first to just say “Yes, we need to do that” then work to find the way to make it happen. Now you may think I’m talking money, but I found this theme needed to be applied in so many areas of life.
So I want to look at it in a few different ways. We’re going to talk about getting life moving and getting some feedback from you on ways you learned to just say “yes” and then find a way to make things happen.
This year I stepped out and just said “yes” to attending many of the events that I was putting off. I preferred to have the money in the bank before I would plan on attending the event.
The truth is, we shut a part of our mind down when we think this way. Our minds automatically shut off the creative side when we say “no.” I have watched as many people look to build a better world with close-minded ideas. Too many times we wait till we are backed into a corner before we make the choices that could make the changes we should have made months before to save ourselves.
So as we go through a few ideas this week, think of how your mind works. Have you actually begun a habit of saying “no” when you mean to say “yes?” Are you ready to open your mind to possibilities? Get ready and let’s learn together to say “yes” and find a way to make it happen.
