This week, I’m talking about doubt and saying yes.
More specifically, I’m going to talk about how, I’ve shifted from thinking that “doubt means don’t” to seeing doubt as a requisite part of the raise your hand say yes process and what it has shown and taught me about living life in integrity and alignment with my values.
I also tackle the commonly-heard phrase “If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no” and offer a nuanced approach to both that phrase as well as the 5 different yes’s I want you to consider, as well as the one that’s the most important and easiest to ignore.
My goal for this episode is to give you insight into things that get in your way that you can shift as well as some new ways to think about your obligations, priorities, and how what you most want is likely found in what you’re most likely to avoid.
“We have to make peace with the doubt and know that it’s a part of the process.”
“The hardest part is how to keep going. The hardest part is how to get back up when you’ve been humbled.”
“When we only say yes out of obligation, we are shutting off the flow of spirit.”
