“Yes” people are those for whom everything is possible if attempted with firmness. “Yes” people are those who believe in principle that all people are good and capable until proven otherwise. “Yes” people are those employees who are always ready to collaborate, to test ideas, to commit their time with a new project. They do everything to make things happen. “Yes” people are excited about what they do, and of the possibilities of doing things differently. “Yes” people are humorous, always with a smile ready. They are those with which we are happy to socialize, talk, and exchange ideas. “Yes” people are those who do everything and still find time to collaborate, participate, help.
“No” people are those for whom nothing is possible. “No” people are those who claim they have seen this movie before … and that everything is “bullshit.” “No” people are those who are sour and bitter, living with a black cloud over their heads. “No” people are those who do not have time for anything. Are extremely busy (always) and do nothing. “No” people are those who live alone and say they are “doing their duty” which is always critical, non-participating, non-cooperation, non-doing. “No” people are those with which we work in horror.
I suggest you do a self-analysis. Which category do you find yourself in? Are you a “yes” person, and believe in your own ability to overcome obstacles and make things happen with enthusiasm or are you a “no” person and keep saying and thinking you must be “realistic” and not live in dreams thus you do not believe in anything, on anyone or yourself?
Think about it. Beware! The world today only has room for people to say “yes.” Success!
