Yes man?

Did you see the newest Jim Carey movie “Yes man“? We did.

The plot of the story: for you to enjoy life and be happy, say yes to everything that comes your way.

I’m a “yes man” and I’m unhappy about it.

– People tell me what to do. I say “yes”, almost every time.
– Even if I’m not sure about something, I would just say “Yes” because I wouldn’t want an opportunity to pass by.
– I hate to offend people, so I’d say “yes” because by saying “no”, they’ll be offended.

The net effect: I do more things with less results. Instead of learning from mistakes, I commit mistakes over and over again. I’m seriously like “a lady” for being a “yes man”. Because a true man can make tough decisions, reject what needs to be rejected and face whatever consequence it may bring.

I’m going to be “No man”. I’d say “no” if I mean “no”. I will make tough decisions — and people will be hurt, in the process. I will say sorry, but go ahead anyway. Saying “no” is tougher than saying “yes”.

I will be a “NO man”. Yes?

    That’s the spirit!
    Unfortunately, we sometimes (or most of the time) see people bigger than God thats why its hard to say “no”- I struggle with this as well. I saw the movie last Saturday and I remember one character saying “there should be a middle ground.” Boundaries should be set. Just imagine what if God says “yes” to everything we pray for. Though it may be ideal for us, the end result may be more harmful for us.
