The Power of “Yes”

“If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you are not sure you can do it, say yes. Then learn how to do it later.” — Richard Branson

Saying “yes” opens the door for new opportunities. Saying “yes” keeps you moving forward in business and in life.

But having the time, energy, and courage to say “yes” is not always easy. In fact, I wrote about how important it is to learn how to say “no” last week in my post, The Power of No.

If you don’t adopt the approach of saying “yes” to new friends, business opportunities, and life experiences, you are limiting your chances of happiness, satisfaction, and success. In business, your competitors who have learned the secret of saying “yes” will capitalize on the opportunities that you never let into your life.

I think past Google CEO Eric Schmidt hit the nail on the head when he said, “Find a way to say yes to things. Say yes to invitations to a new country, say yes to meet new friends, say yes to learn something new. Yes is how you get your first job, and your next job, and your spouse, and even your kids. Even if it’s a bit edgy, a bit out of your comfort zone, saying yes means that you will do something new, meet someone new, and make a difference. Yes, lets you stand out in a crowd, be the optimist, see the glass full, be the one everyone comes to. Yes is what keeps us all young.”

If You’re Doing Things Like Everyone Else, Then You’re Probably Doing Things the Wrong Way

Success isn’t easy. It takes focus, strategy and hard work.

One big problem I’ve seen over the past 30 years while representing hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners is the following:

99.99 % of these amazing people are trying to find success the wrong way.

They’re trying to reach this goal by being exactly like everyone else in their occupation, profession or job.

That doesn’t work. It’s not a good formula for success.

As I shared in my short Periscope (live video) below, I believe that if you want success, you must stand out and fascinate others. You’ve got to take the steps, have the courage, and develop a game plan to do things your own and unique way and to become top of mind in all that you do.

Look, when it comes to leadership, branding, marketing, finance, social media, employees, product and business development (and everything in between), most people really don’t know why they’re doing what they’re doing. They blindly duplicate what they see other people do. They’re afraid of missing out.

Don’t copy that person or be that person.

Be unique and do your own things your own way. Don’t let the misunderstood, false and even out-of-date rules of business others blindly follow, hold you back. Fascinate others, stand out, remain top of mind, and travel your own path.

Do this and someday, you’ll look back, and be glad you did.

The Power of “No”

“We need to learn the slow ‘yes’ and the quick ‘no.’”
Tom Friel, former CEO of Heidrick & Struggles

Never before has time and attention been more important in business. Your new client base has expanded from local to global and digital has created 24/7 opportunities and expectations. There’s a lot going on all at once, and it seems like everyone is suffering from a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out).

It’s challenging to remain focused on the big picture. You can let these crazy times and constant distractions continue to snowball out of control or, change how you handle things by learning and using the little trick I share below.
