The Power of Saying “Yes”

I knew I was meant for MORE

“It was the scariest thing I’d ever done in my life. And I had done a lot of scary things. I knew I wanted to move. I knew I was meant for more. And I knew that my success in this one year was just the tip of the iceberg and that the place I was living literally and energetically no longer supported my bigness.” - Tricia Brouk, Executive Producer of Speakers Who Dare and The Art Of The Big Talk 

Too often, we are the ones responsible for creating our own greatest limitations. So many of our dreams never see the light of day because we allow ourselves to become wrapped up in the logistical details of “How?” instead of simply saying “Yes” and trusting in our own abilities.

This kind of linear thinking prevents us from reaching our full potential because we become obsessed with questions like:

  • How will I get the money?

  • How do I know if it will work?

  • How will I get from Point A to Point B?

How” questions are inherently limiting because they require answers rooted in absolute certainty; a scarcity mindset wants to know EXACTLY how something will turn out because it fears failure… when in reality, it’s impossible to really know anything until you try.

I’d love to hear from you: What’s something you’ve been wanting to say “YES” to but have been too afraid to give the green light to? What’s holding you back & how can I support you?

In this week’s Global League of Women Podcast, I spoke with Tricia Brouk, Executive Producer of Speakers Who Dare and TEDxLincolnSquare on The Power of Saying “Yes” and the notion of Limitless Abundance.

Reading: Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D.

Wolves and Women have much in common. Both have a wild spirit. Women and Wolves are instinctual creatures, able to sense the unseen.

They are loyal, protective of their packs and of their pups. They are wild and beautiful.

Playing: All The Rage by Allie X

Rejected, I was rejected
I wasn't good enough to be elected
Lava, it was like lava
Moving through my body like fire
Rejected, I was rejected
I wasn't good enough to be elected
Watch me take over the spotlight

I will be all the rage tonight (tonight!)
Watch me shimmy into the light (alright!)
Filled with fury and starry eyed
I will be all the rage

You should aim to be successful, but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man
