When I wrote “Yes! Energy: The Equation to Do Less, Make More” many people saw it as a departure from what I had been coaching. “Wait, aren’t you The Millionaire Maker?” “Do you still talk about wealth and finance?” Yes and yes! Reaching millionaire status, building wealth, and understanding finance has EVERYTHING to do with saying Yes! If you don’t say Yes!, you close the doors to opportunities before they are presented to you. Today is the final day of Alumni 15, Live Out Loud’s conference of the year where everyone who has been to Loral’s Big Table gathers to learn, mastermind, and say YES! to opportunity. More deals are made at Alumni each year than at any other single event in our community. LBT Alumni know the power of YES! In fact, that’s where the idea for “Yes! Energy” came from, the community.
See, Finding Your Yes! has a strong tie in with your ability to create cash. Every business owner has run into times where they are presented with challenges and opportunities. To REALLY be successful, you have to take action. No one got rich by just sitting on their butt. There was work behind it, and more than a few Yes! answers to get that cash machine pumping out cash.
The biggest risk in life you can take is to take NO risks at all. I felt Yes! Energy was necessary because there were too many people who were starting to develop a negative mindset, a wait and see attitude that was literally KILLING their businesses. I couldn’t stand by and let it happen. I won’t let you NO yourself into closing the doors of your business.
So do yourself a favor. Say yes to something big. Say yes to a new partnership, a client, an educational opportunity. Give yourself the freedom to move forward. Really, it just takes one word. All you have to do is open your mouth and say it.
