How many ways can you say “Yes” when asked to do something? Consider:
- “Yes, I have no choice.”
- “Yes, but …”
- “Well… yes.”
- “Yes, I would like to.”
- “Yes, absolutely!”
- “Yes! I am so excited to be part of it!”
Now, imagine the energy behind and with each of those yeses. Try saying each one from that energy. Try letting the energy speak as the only word you use is “Yes”. Yes it is possible! The energy behind our words and our actions is real and powerful. Acting from a powerful “Yes!” is a gift to the giver and to the receiver. Acting from anything less has the potential to bring poison to our actions.
The next time you are asked to participate in something, to help, to choose, listen for the energy in your response. Then decide if you really are a “Yes” … or if perhaps this time you are a “No.”
What energy do you want to act from?
