One Small Word that Carries a Powerful Punch

Yes

“Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best.” – John C. Maxwell

How many times have you said, “No” to someone or something because fear held you back. You may expect to fail or you may even expect the worst from someone so saying, “No” feels safer, more comfortable and easier.

So the new opportunity or relationship never has a chance.

But there’s one small word that can open your life to new opportunities. This one small word gives you almost unlimited courage and turns your disbelief to conviction. This small word can recharge your faith and passion. This one small word that carries a powerful punch is, “Yes.”
