The Power of Yes!

Start with a ‘Yes’ and see where that takes you. Tina Fey. SNL.


In these seemingly ever more challenging times, there is no shortage of bad news and negative thinking, in every sphere and endeavour of society and activity.

But you can elect, if you choose, to turn your back on it all and instead of saying ‘No’, say ‘Yes’.

Yes. It’s OK to put your work out into the world.

Yes. You are capable of doing good work and making a difference.

Yes. What you are doing  is important.

Yes. You can ignore the doubting Thomases.

Yes. You can do even better.

This kind of thinking isn’t for everybody, I know, but you’re not everybody. There will always be a surplus of people eager to criticize, turn a blind eye and close off their hearts. That’s where you step in.

The ‘Yes’ crowd has always been in the minority but today there has never been a greater need for people to step up to the plate and say YES!
