I had lunch the other day with a friend who had recently been downsized.
She spoke non-stop about all the things she would NOT do in her future career.
After 30 minutes of negativity, I finally stopped her.
I told her that all I was hearing was “No, no, no, no.”
I get this.
I, too, had been downsized once, after a 30-year run. For a while, “No” became a big part of my vocabulary.
When we are rejected, it hurts. So much so that we tend to reject anything before it rejects us.
This type of attitude can kill any chances of success.
I told my friend, “You need to wake up saying ‘Yes!’”
You need to stop rejecting and start having an attitude of positivity.
An attitude of “Yes.” An attitude of possibility.
When you do, you’ll find that “yes” is the key to success.
