Everyday we get a new basket of opportunities.

For every opportunity we are given everyday we have three choices:

Pass. Not for me.

Maybe. But not today.

Thanks. Time to get to work.

Each minute we get to choose something. From what we say, what we eat, what we buy, where we go, to what we do.

Why Say No? Why Say Yes?

Sometimes we already know that something is not a good idea. It will not help us get to where we are going and it will not make our lives easier. This knowledge can be from past experiences and stories of another’s experience.

Every other time we say no it is because we do not believe we can do it. We do not think we have the abilities to work through the challenges to reach the end result.

When we say Yes, we know we can do it. We believe we can do it. We know the challenges between us and the earning the rewards of the opportunity are worth it. We know it will not always be smooth sailing but we want it.
