LIFESTYLE WITH NENYE
Three little words, yet powerful.
A word used for affirmation, agreement and can be interchanged with, by all means, sure, certainly, absolutely, Indeed.
It originated from an old English word gese, gise meaning, may it be so
Its potency can also take the place of amen which means so be it.
The Ibos would say iseeee when praying, meaning amen, yes.
Take a moment and close your eyes, reminisce on when you got a NO over a request, how you felt, how dejected, how lost, how sad.
Now do the same exercise again when you got a YES, what was it like? Is there a difference?
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SAY YES.
Yes is an affirmation of something, an agreement for something to come into being.
It helps clear the pathway and brings up ideas you never knew existed in you.
It has a binding force that connects with your belief and pronouncement.
When you say yes to someone, you find it difficult to break your word.
A yes to a situation makes you get up even when tired to bring about what you have said yes to.
Saying yes to scary situations gives you the boldness and preparedness to face them head-on.
It brings out the power of creativity in you and makes you discover a strength you never knew you had.
It stretches us to go beyond our comfort zone.
Words are life, the word yes is embedded with a life-giving catalyst, it is a seed that germinates to bring about flourishing.
When a profound resounding YES is pronounced, Mother Nature and positive forces work together to provide necessary resources to achieve the goal that we said yes to.
It works in agreement with your will and gives you the energy to fly high.
My all-time favorite life coach Lisa Nichols uses the word, Yes, yes to bring about the change desired in her classes.
WHEN SHOULD YOU SAY YES?
Saying yes does not mean laying back and expecting magic to happen, it means you are ready to do whatever it takes and will do it no matter what.
It goes in hand with action.
You may need to start attending coaching classes to learn skills from professionals – SAY YES.
You may need to study and invest in various research – SAY YES.
You may need to move out of your parents’ home and find your path-SAY YES.
You may need to relocate and sojourn in a strange land – SAY YES.
I have had huge dreams, for long I have had them but I have always sat in my comfort zone expecting my dreams to come to reality – no more.
For my dreams to start manifesting, I need to say yes to attending coaching classes where there are multiple gains to garner – learning new skills, networking, etc.
What do you need to say yes to, to enable your bigger YES to come to reality?
REPLACE THAT NO (FEAR) WITH A YES.
Many a time, when we are faced with some opportunities in life, we offer a NO out of fear, not trusting if we can achieve, if we are capable, yet it’s a dream we silently yearn for.
I remember the woman in her late 50’s that auditioned for 2019 BBN (BIG BROTHER NAIJA).
I am so certain that she must have been faced with so many dissuading factors why she should say NO to her heart desire, the fact that the show is a mix of young adults who are still vibrant in show business, yet she chose a YES to enable her dream come true, even though she didn’t make it but that boldness to stand up in the face of fear over every negative thought to say YES is empowering.
Say YES instead of no, look for possibilities instead of how it would not work.
A yes is like saying;” I WANT TO DO THIS, I HAVE DECIDED TO THIS, I CAN DO THIS, I AM DETERMINED TO THIS, I MAY NOT KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT DOING IT BUT I WILL SURELY FIND AND ENGAGE IN WAYS TO DO THIS AND I WILL DO IT”
So rise today and say a resounding YESSSSS to your dreams.
YES I CAN, YES I AM, YES I WILL.
