MY SPARK OF GENIUS?
11.4 What Have You Got to Lose? Just Say Yes.
I am cautious.
I tend to think things through
before I act.
If I feel anxious about an outcome or like I may make a fool of myself or things may not turn out as I envision in my mind, I’m apt to say "no" and move on to situations and activities where I have more control, skill or comfort.
I’ve missed out on a lot of experiences and opportunities because I’ve been too concerned about what might happen.
My life changed when I made one simple decision about how I wanted to experience my life and work.
During a trip to Peru, I decided to say "yes" to anything
that didn’t put me in mortal danger.
As a result, I made a fabulous connection
with a group of women in a small village
in the Andes, and even let my guide
put a boa constrictor around my neck.
And nothing bad happened!
The experiment revealed
how much richer life can be
when I say "yes."
Have you ever had an idea or big goal
you wanted to achieve in your business?
You imagine what it will be like
when you’re there, how great it will be,
how beautiful and perfect and simple to achieve?
Then, you start thinking about the details,
what it will take to make it happen.
How hard and uncomfortable it might be.
So you think, "Maybe I’ll just skip it."
And nothing happens.
You move on, feeling disappointed maybe,
and also relief because you didn’t fail
or make a fool of yourself.
You ever feel that way?
What would happen if you said
"Yes, what have I got to lose?"!
