How Powerful Is One Yes: Combat The Negative

The amount of times you hear “No” is nothing compared to a single “Yes”.


Our world is shrouded by a variation of the word, “No”. Stop me if you have heard any of the following before:

  • We regret to inform you…
  • We are going in a different direction.
  • Sorry, but I’m not interested.
  • It is too much money at the moment.
  • We’ll get back to you.
  • Not right now.
  • It is not in the cards.
  • Any saying of the actual word. (No,Nah,Nope,Negative,{expletive} no.)

How can a single, “Yes,” change all of that?

  • We are happy to inform you.
  • We are interested.
  • It may stretch our budget, but yes!
  • Any saying of the actual word. (Yes,Yeah,Yep,Affirmative,(expletive) yes.)

I know I have a lot of readers that relate to one major example of the dreaded job or scholastic interview phase or simply the application point. Hearing a “Yes” or “No” changes the perspective, depending on which one it is. A “Yes” gets you employed. A “No” gets you employed. “Yes” means you can ease back on job interviews. “No” means you should double up on the interviews. Either way, you are employed and still in the chase. Keep chasing until you get the income, the job, and the culture that you want.

In life, you can hear the word “No” a million times. Do not let it stop you in your destiny. Let them inspire you and find your “Yes!”

Have you found the “Yes” in parts of your life? If so, feel free to share!
