Yes and no are powerful words

This weekend I was thinking about just how powerful we are as individuals. As much is it doesn’t feel like it sometimes, we are the ones that are in total control of our life. Two simple words are all that we need to control our destiny, alter our life path and keep us on the track to achieving our goals. Those words are yes, and no. When you think about it, they are the true power to everything.

When we say yes, hopefully we have made a commitment, done our analysis and know that is the correct path we need to take. When we say no we understand that it isn’t the right path for us and that there must be alternatives. Where we sometimes get into trouble is when we say maybe and then let others sway a decision that may not have necessarily been the right decision for us.

When we truly understand the power of the words yes and no, we also understand the importance of not giving up that power to anyone else. Once we do the ability to control our own lives and its destiny go with them, which often leaves us with a life unfulfilled. I believe at the end of the day no one wants to give the power to control their life to someone else, we just sometimes lose sight of who we are and what we are capable of, while second guessing ourselves.

There have been many times over the years where I have been in a relationship with a person, job or situation where I forgot that I had the ultimate power to say yes or no. I let others make decisions for me and it rarely wound up in a good situation for me personally. It was only when I said enough was enough that I truly took the reigns of my life path and understood that I was responsible for my own satisfaction.

If you find yourself a little off course, sit down look in the mirror and say those two words to yourself out loud. Tell yourself that only you have the power to use those two words on things that affect your life and take back ownership of your life path. It is only when we truly believe that we have the ultimate power that we see that our life really does belong to us.

Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles.
