The power of yes and no. Saying yes to anything is very powerful. It is an empowering statement. It seems more positive than saying no. You can say yes to a request or yes to a question about an action, like, “should you do something” or “can you achieve something”? In both cases, our overpowering desire will be to say yes. But for yes to be the right answer, it needs a no. Perhaps many. You cannot say yes to everything and expect to be successful or thrive. Say no at least four times more than you say yes. In this sense, a no is just as, if not more powerful.
