Because when I stopped connecting no with negative thoughts and failure – I was able to replace it with a connection to opportunity and curiosity. If you stop and think about it, without a no answer – the answer is yes or maybe. The only way to navigate to a yes is though the no’s. As the book‘s subtitle phrases it… “Yes is the destination and no is how you get there.” If you are… Continue Reading
