Most accomplished people have a difficult time saying “No”

but not to themselves.  

We say NO! to ourselves all the time.


But as Seth Godin writes,

It’s more challenging to practice looking in the mirror and saying, “YES”.

Yes to yourself.

Yes to your dreams.

Yes to your plans.

Yes to love.

Yes to hope.

Yes to hard work.

Yes to the freedom of discipline.

Yes to failure and learning (two sides of the same experience)

Yes to your Uncommon Life.

When you look in the mirror and say Yes! to yourself,

you will find it easier to say No to anything or anyone that is not you.

Will you look yourself in the eye and say, “Yes!” today?
