5 Reasons Why You Should Say “Yes” More Often

Saying, “No” is so easy because it keeps you in your comfort zone.  If you never take any risks, you will never experience the rewards.


Here are 5 reasons why you should nix the “Nos” and just say, “Yes”!


  1. It enhances your personal relationships. Whether that means meeting new and interesting people, or enhancing existing friendships, this one little word can have a huge impact on the way you live your life.  Saying, “Yes” can even enhance your romantic relationship.  Having your own hobbies is great, but you learn new things about each other when you try new things together.


  1.  It opens doors.  (Saying “Yes” gets you out of the house!)  Plus, every time you say “Yes” to something that you would normally say “No” to, you give yourself an opportunity to enrich your life.  You can gain a skill, find a new hobby, or just experience something new and different.


  1. 3. It boosts your confidence and self-worth.  Saying, “Yes” when someone asks you to try something new gives you an opportunity to find something new that you’re good at.  When you do something outside of your comfort zone, it lets you see another side of yourself.  The fun, adventurous side that you never even knew existed!


  1.  It provides momentum for your life to move forward.  “If we always do what we’ve always done, we will always get what we’ve always gotten.”  Let’s face it.  Life is moving and changing all the time.  If you’re standing still, the world is going to move on without you.  We all know you’ve changed at least a little over the years, unless you’re still rocking the blue eye shadow and crimped hair.  (Which is a case when it’s actually okay to say, “No.”)


  1. Saying, “Yes” pummels regret.  We’ve all heard the saying “When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the things you did.”  This is so true.  While saying, “Yes” isn’t always going to lead to a wonderful outcome; it does prevent you from wondering what might have happened.


Pay attention to the way your mouth naturally forms a smile when you say the word, “Yes.”  Coincidence?  I think not!
