Do you remember the movie Yes Man with Jim Carrey?
He is a guy that says “no” to so much because he doesn’t want to be tied down to anything. Then he takes on a new journey to increase his happiness by saying “yes” to everyone and everything.
He has amazing experiences, does outrageous activities and his life changes for the better by the end of the movie.
Seems fun in theory, but saying yes to EVERYTHING and EVERYONE is really saying no what you want and living your dreams.
We live in a culture where “yes” is the considered the right answer. But it’s not always the answer that will help you achieve your vision in the world.
In this episode we talk about the power of no, and what it will do to bring you abundance (and keep your sanity). Welcome to episode 79 on the School of Greatness with James Altucher.
