Are you the type that can think of a billion reasons why you should not do anything new, exciting, nerve wrecking or even pamper yourself? Read on. Following up on the article 5 steps to practice saying ‘No’ here are 5 reasons why you should say “Yes”.
1. Say “Yes” to treating yourself right!
Take good care of yourself by good foods, drinks, snacks and go pamper yourself now and again. Have a facial, a massage and go shop a new wardrobe every now and again including shoes! If it’s budget that’s holding you back in treating yourself, save money on a monthly base and go on a shopping spree once in a quarter. I’m sure you can think of something, and why shouldn’t you, you’re worth it! Like the Jogha collection 😉
2. Say “Yes” to meeting new people!
Whether you’re in school or work, I’m sure you get invited to going to events, celebrations, dinners or drinks once in a while. Start practising saying yes to these invitations, even if you don’t know anyone, heck, especially when you don’t know anyone! Meeting new people or even one person at a gathering who you click with is so much fun! Just see how it goes, and if it didn’t meet up to your expectations…just go home. Don’t beat yourself over it and never let it hold you back into taking up another invitation. Keep going to new places en keep meeting new people.
3. Say “Yes” to opportunities in work!
When opportunities are practically thrown at you in work, have a little think about it and take it! Surely you know your worth to the company and the chance to having new experiences will enrich you as a person and do a lot of good to your self-worth. And never be afraid to speak out. A good boss or manager will listen to what you have to say and will do what’s best for you role in his/her team or the company.
4. Say “Yes” to learn something new!
Seriously, you are never too old to learn something new! Even the smartest people learn new things as we can’t experience everything in life in one go. It takes steps, sometimes even baby steps to learn something new and that’s the fun bit! Learning how to ride the bike – whoohoo, how cool was that!?
5. Say “yes” and enjoy the adventure!
If you’re used to saying “No”, practice saying “Yes”. It will bring you into situations you haven’t experienced before and what’s the harm in that? Stop over analysing things and stop worrying about stuff. Life is too short to deprive yourself living it!
