I read something l loved this week starting with the title: “It’s not your job to tell yourself ‘no’.”
Write that above your workspace. Now.
The world is full of no’s. People are going to say that word to you all the time. So it’s ridiculous to also stand in line and be one more no in your day.
I loved the whole article, but this was the part that I feel I should read every single morning before I start working and telling myself no:
It’s not your job to tell yourself no. It’s not your job to deny yourself opportunities. It’s not your job to prevent your own progress. There are enough people in the world who will do those things for you.
Your job is to embrace rather than ignore. Your job is to pursue rather than prevent. Your job is to tell yourself “yes” instead of “no.”
That’s your job.
That is your job, too.
What are you saying “yes” to today?
