“No” to leading a presentation. “No” to making that sales pitch. “No” to sharing my ideas in meetings. “No” to networking and meeting up for lunch to discuss opportunities and possible book deals. Those “NO’s” cost me, big time. They affected my walking, living, breathing and existing in my purpose.
Of course if I had many of those things to do over again, I would definitely jump at the chance; but I can’t go back and turn those specific “no’s” into “yes”. I can, however, start saying “YES” more often, right now.
Ever since I began facing my fear and doubt head on, my life has changed for the better. I am no longer afraid to take risks and do the things that use to scare the hell out of me. Lately, I have been saying “YES” to new ideas. “Yes” I’ll present in the staff meeting. “Yes” I’ll fly to Atlanta and be an expert in your video series. “Yes” I’ll meet you for lunch and discuss opportunities. “Yes” I’d love to moderate the panel at your women in business networking event. “Yes” I would love to be a special guest on your podcast discussing living your purpose.
Bolder Sisters, I must tell you that saying “YES” in each of these situations, is actually me saying “YES” to myself. It confirms that I am talented and gifted and it’s time I let the rest of the world in on it too.

Bolder Sisters, what do you need to start saying “YES” to?
