Saying yes leads to great places.

Throughout our lives we are faced with countless decisions.

We naturally shy away from things which will make us feel uncomfortable.

We often avoid things which appear challenging or difficult.

Our biological makeup pulls us towards safety, comfort and convenience.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” –  Neale Donald Walsch

Yesterday I was asked to join a run in Hoi An, as part of an annual celebration for becoming UNESCO World Heritage Centre. It was a 3km competitive run at 6am in the boiling Vietnamese weather.

I said yes and completed the run with hundreds of others this morning – it reminded me that the most memorable, progressive moments of our lives happen when we say yes. 

Perhaps we should all say yes a little more, it can lead to great places.
