TRY Coaching — Power of Saying YES
“The quickest way to acquire self-confidence is to do exactly what you are afraid to do” Anonymous
And, what can be more powerful than saying YES to those situations that challenge, stretch and even scare you!
In today’s ever changing and competitive business landscape, having the courage to say YES to a new job situation that might seem out of reach or uncomfortable says that you have the confidence and trust to step out of your comfort zone and go for the brass ring.
As a business coach, I work with clients that are stuck in a rut and can’t seem to get out from under and aren’t sure what keeps them in this very uncomfortable place.
Once we start exploring what is attributing to this stuck place, we usually discover it’s about having the self-confidence to step up to the plate and say YES, rather than creating stories that don’t work.
Sometimes, it takes a leap of faith, taking a deep breath with heart pounding to work up enough courage to take that stand, no matter what, and say YES.
Fear teaches us to look it straight in the eye and not waver for one moment. Then, we have taken control and not let fear take control of us.
And, once you are willing to take that risk, the next time gets easier. It’s like building muscles at the gym, the more reps you do, the stronger you become. Think of saying YES as flexing those brain muscles!
How far out on the limb are you willing to go to get what you want? Just say YES instead of “NO, let me think about it” or any other excuse you give yourself not to feel the fear.
