Today how often do you hear” YES” whenever you or anyone asked for some help or some work ?
It may puzzle you to think about the above statement, but seriously isn’t the word “YES” heard very rarely today in office or among your friends and family .
Its true indeed , a lot of thoughts flood our mind soon after someone asks us for a favor to resolve an issue, to take up some task, to volunteer for some work, to assist in some activity, do an extra piece of work, or just anything, we are full of fear and feel so heavy, burdened , stressed and fixed in a dilemma what to say a Yes or a No..
What happens then is that we simply say a No where we could have chosen a YES to do or perform some thing that could have had new learning opportunities for us or even bring us goodness by doing something for the others and make us feel great.
But In any case…
“The word ‘NO’ has some FUN element attached to it That ‘YES’ can never have“, which is why we so much love to use it and so often, really for instance one of my acquaintances has this massive potential of saying No to everything that comes to her minute after minute and it surprises me so much, as how can anyone be so lazy or i should say so mean
I asked her,
“why do you say No to everything yaar at least you can do one thing in a day” ?
To this she conveniently replies..
” dear, No saves me from extra work and why should i say yes when i can say No easily and no one has a problem with it”
Hmmmm smart enough but is it right to say No so frequently and where does it take you or this world , Imagine where you approach anyone for help and all you get to hear is NO, NO, NO from everyone . Isn’t it a sorry state a world full of inhuman’s .
To unlearn this word No, think about why are we so afraid of this Yes because its full of responsibility and needs you to go that extra mile for someone always. the Best way to counter is to focus on the brighter side of Yes,that carries a lot shining traits it like responsibility, credibility,sensibility, trust, respect, virtue, wisdom, maturity, decency, humility and many more, whereas,
‘No’, carries lightness, freedom, carefree, relaxed, unburdened etc feelings.
But there is more to this No, where many of us who blindly or even bluntly reject a plea or request by someone who approaches us for something with some work or for help we tend to make excuse or just flatly say the word, and feel relaxed that we are smart or made a great escape, but actually we lost a good opportunity to create a mark in the lives of others and mostly ourselves, where it could contribute to our own growth and many a times sincere people may even feel guilty for not having helped someone and may lose on a goodnight sleep.
In view of the above many should think, about saying YES as a positive influence in their life that entails the provision of nurturing so many more positive traits . But things dont end here in religiously following this Yes, there’s a way to practice it and apply it for the betterment of self and others as well.
Thereby some discouraging factors that follow Yes are there, where one may be subjected to unscrupulous tasks being loaded over them at workplaces or among the peers,and no doubt its true because our society makes indiscriminate use of those who say Yes and label them as fools forever, who does all the work and can be given more as he/she may never use the word NO.
The bottom line here is to make Best use of Yes so that it doesn’t discourage or depreciates your value or identity in any way and helps in facilitating your positive personality growth and inner peace that contributes to your spiritual, physical and mental well being.
If you find that a particular situation of person is indefinitely using your abilities and taking advantage of your approvals then you can pleasantly say No, it doesn’t harm you or the other as they will get their work done if not from you than any other one for sure.
The Yes word is not something to feel pressurized about rather its a very Humane and magnanimous way of presenting yourself among others that makes you unique and stand out . So just Click on the Button Yes and reset your life to the old self you were always like a kid who embraces Yes every time be it dark or sunshine.
