There are so many people who come to me with stories of how they are struggling; it’s like their first instinct once they realize they aren’t getting anywhere is fear and begging. They have told the world “no, no, no” and now they want to find someone who has the tools to bring the world to their front doorstep for them.
You may be in this boat where you want the doors to open, where you want to hear “yes” in your business. But you told so many “NO.” Well, after my learning experiences of last week I am realizing that even though you say “yes” the world will not necessarily get easier right away, with smooth sailing ahead. You will face some struggles. Sometimes the back-up plan falls through and you cannot see hope.
Yet you are still saying “yes” because you believe that you will find a way to make it work. I remember a few years ago I was building safety nets for myself. I stepped out and took some chances; I opened up and learned to love again; I invested and gathered some returns.
Right now doors are being opened to you. The faith it takes to say “yes” is just as strong as the fear it takes to say “no.” I encourage you to say “yes” and get busy finding a way. I tell you, the rewards I have for saying “yes” over the past four years are greater that I could imagine. And I can’t imagine what my life would be now if I had said “no.” I have the best relationship with my wife; I have a business I never could have imagined I would have. And it’s all because I said “yes.”
One of the first things my wife and I read as a couple, several years ago when we started dating, was an email from Brian Tracey that had the quote of the day from Thomas Edison. “Most people have no idea how close they were to success when they gave up.” That has driven us to make choices that by faith give rewards. They may not be immediate rewards but they are better rewards. Say “yes” even when you want to say “no” then find a way to make things happen.
