Do you want have power in your leadership and life? If so, learn to say “Yes”.
OK sure – don’t say yes to everything! But do ask yourself: “What matters the most?” Say Yes to that. When you say Yes to some things, you’re also saying No to others.
Goff makes a habit of quitting something every Thursday. Seems to me like a lot of quitting! But saying “No”, obviously helps to bring clarity about what his “Yes” will be.
What opportunities is God opening up for you? What possibilities are presenting themselves? God wants to blow your mind! So, seek out the open spaces, be action-minded, and say Yes to God’s way… and No to everything else.
