The yes and life.
There is no right, there is no wrong. What if you could have everything you wanted and you were able to step outside of fear and stand in the yes of life?
Try this on for size, this week pick one day and any time someone invites you to do something you say yes. This experiment involves you getting out of your ego, pessimistic state of mind and go into the experience by full of curiosity.
What is the worst that could happen? You end up at a lunch that you didn’t plan on. At that lunch you meet someone while waiting in line that has one of the biggest business deals of your career. Or you get a free lunch. Or you learn something new about a co-worker that allows your work relationship and communication to thrive.
Humans get caught up in their reasons and the life they live completely out of habit. You have identified yourself as someone and you customize your entire world to fit that picture you have painted. You are a mom, so you tell yourself that you can’t travel or take time to go to the gym. You are “Type A” so you tell yourself that you can’t do something spontaneous. You are unorganized so you tell yourself that you can be late for all of your meetings. There is a entirely different option out there and it all starts by saying yes.
You get to say “yes and…” fill in the blank.
Yes I will go to lunch and will you drive?
Yes, I will go on the snowboarding trip and I will keep my job.
Yes, I will be a mom and a badass.
Yes, I will be an engineer and a personal trainer.
Drop the either or that you have decided your life has to be and start living the life that you always dreamed.
Start with one simple “yes” this week.
Register for that program.
Have a fantastic marriage and be in an open relationship.
Book the flight.
Finish the book.
Hit a PR in the gym.
Have the hard conversation with your lover.
Whatever it is that is holding you back? I challenge you to go on the other side of your reasons and start customizing your life.
Register for the program you have always dreamt of but you dont know where the money is going to come from or you don’t know what hotel you would stay in. The point of this exercise is start somewhere. By registering for the program you are saying “yes!” Then all of the other situations/hows will fall together. You are telling the universe a direction and the how’s will start to show up. Give into the “WHAT” drives you and the hows, the paths, the money will start to align.
Have you always wanted to travel to another state but just were too scared or didnt know what would happen or you didnt have anyone to go with? Well this is your opportunity to do some research and get on the other side of your reasons. Start with the What, say yes and book the flight. Then all of your excitement will fuel the conversations you have with people. All of these conversations a random friend might become your co-traveler, someone might tell you about a great deal they got on a rental car and someone might give you a lead on an amazing adventure they recommend when you get there.
Build #theYESandLife of your dreams.
