Say “YES” More
By Karl Moore
You are fantastic at saying “No.”
You really are. You might not even realize it, but you’re great at it.
We say “No” to hundreds of things in our lives, every single day.
We say “No!” to our anger. We say “No!” to our lustful urges. We say “No!” to the things we deem to be wrong. We say “No!” to change. We say “No!” to criticism against ourselves. In fact, in general, we say “No!” to the world around us.
But you really must get with the latest in self-development fashion.
You see, “Yes!” is the new “No!”
We each spend too much time fighting against the world and what happens within it. We resist what happens in our life. We don’t accept what is. We say “No!”
Does that sound like you?
The problem is that saying “No!” too much holds us back. It means we spend our time suppressing our emotions and stopping ourselves from moving forward.
When we say “No!” we’re swimming against the current. When we say “Yes!” we’re swimming with the current.
Which do you think is easiest? Which produces less stress? Which is faster, and more enjoyable?
By saying yes to the world, we instantly become more open and more accepting of everything. Saying yes allows us to accept what’s going on, and gives us greater power to change whatever we desire.
So, do you say “No!” too often in your life?
Do you deny your emotions? Do you perhaps try to push down jealousy when it appears? Do you suppress fear? Do you deny lust? Do you desperately attempt to cap your grief?
Try saying “Yes” to every emotion and situation that comes up for you. Accept it. Welcome it. Embrace it. Trust it. Be okay with it.
By saying “Yes” to everything that comes up in your life, you enter into a state of flow. You find that life becomes easier, and that you develop a more loving and accepting side.
Remember, saying “Yes” doesn’t necessarily mean that you agree with something. If your local neighborhood experiences a spate of violent attacks, saying “Yes” to it doesn’t mean you approve of it.
Rather, it means you accept the situation – rather than fight against the fact that it’s happening.
And that gives you greater power to change it, if you wish to do so. Acknowledgement is the first step on the road to change.

Saying yes more is a ninja weapon in the world of self-development.
It frees you up – and enables you to turn every bad situation into a good situation.
Saying yes more removes your resistance, obliterates your stress, and turns you into a brighter, more lucid individual.
It doesn’t just work with emotions either. Saying yes more is also perfect for social situations!
Do you realize just how many times you turn down social invitations? It’s possible people don’t even ask you out anymore, because they presume you’ll say no. And then you complain about how few friends you have. Tsk!
So, when you get asked, say “YES!”
In fact, as an experiment, trying saying yes to everything (within reason!) over the space of a week. That’s what Danny Wallace did in his humorous self-help book, “Yes Man.”
It changed his life. This simple technique has changed mine too.
By saying YES more, you’re giving your life to fate – allowing yourself to be open to the randomness of the world. You’re expressing.
By saying NO, you’re denying, you’re stunting the growth of your own potential. You’re suppressing.
So, say “YES!” to the hilarity of life, the next time a bus drives by, splashing into a puddle and soaking your new dress. Embrace your grief, when your pet hamster passes away. Welcome your anger toward that oh-so-annoying situation. Accept all of your own crazy worrying habits.
Say “YES!” to everything.
Literally, say it. Say it out loud when things happen. Repeat it to yourself over and over if you wish. It’s a great mantra.
So, say YES: Embrace. Welcome. Accept. Drop the resistance.
You know, they say life can only be lived going forward, and only understood looking backward. Maybe that’s true for you. Trust that everything has a reason – and say “Yes!” to what happens to you, knowing that it’ll make sense in the end.
The Australians call it a “Bias for yes.” The Spanish say “Si a todo.” Buddhists describe it as flowing with the current of life.
We call it saying yes more.
And by saying yes more, you’ll become more accepting, more loving, and more in harmony with the world. It’s one of the secret tools in your self-development armor – and ultimately gives you more power and control over a situation.
So, if you want to find your freedom, say yes more.
“Hello Kristen: I enjoy, and benefit from, everything you do. In the past I was very much influenced by others (or one other) forcing me to make a decision which was never in my best interests, I’m sure there are others in that situation now who could use your advice for sticking to our guns and not allowing ourselves to be forced into doing something we don’t want to do”
You’re ready to say “Yes” more – however you find yourself struggling because saying “no” has become such a habit that you don’t even notice it anymore…
So what do you do?
Here’s one of my favorite power questions – use this and “YES” will become your new habit…
“What is one thing I have been saying ‘no’ to that I can change to a ‘yes’?
Seems simple, yet it works like a charm – just by using this power question, you open yourself up to see where you have been in resistance (which is an energetic ‘no’). Have FUN with shifting your ‘no’ to ‘yes’!!!
