It should come as no surprise – it’s always easier to say ‘no’.
Saying no means being okay with the status quo. Saying no means staying comfortable. Saying no means taking the easy road.
Here’s the thing, for me taking the easy road is boring. I am choosing to say yes. I am choosing to take the road less traveled because I know the rewards will be greater.
Last Sunday, with a temperature reading of 14°F, I could have said no to my 7 mile training run. I said yes and ran .81 mile further than I needed too. Saying yes opens up a world possibilities.
Whether you are training for a marathon, considering a career change or deciding whether you should step out of your comfort zone … just say yes.
Be well and make it a great day!
