When to say yes

There’s a popular tip in the self-improvement world…

Learn to say no.

This is absolutely vital in protecting our time, energy, and values.

But I’ve been learning that there really is a counterbalance to it.

We must learn to say yes, too.

In the past, I’ve followed the rule: If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no.

But there are plenty of events or experiences I was hesitant about only to find out they would change my life:

My coaching program, martial arts, nights with friends, trips, starting a business…

It’s crucial to set boundaries so we know what we must say no to. But it’s just as important to know what we should take chances on and allow in our lives.

Yes.
