Ok, Yes Man was a pretty stupid movie— but I believe it communicates a value that is fundamental to career and personal growth.
Jim Carrey is secretly Tony Robins, showing us all how to live the best and most ridiculous lives. And showing us a hilarious truth:
if you don’t say yes, you will never grow.
Saying no is easy. A lot of people say no to opportunities that will challenge them or force them out of the comfort zones. This goes back to our biology, we are hard wired for survival and safety which often comes with familiarity. The unfortunate truth is, if you are always saying no, you are not giving yourself the opportunity to learn (which often comes from failure).
If you are looking for an easy life hack, just spend today saying yes. Say yes to new projects, concerts, ideas and let new people in to your life.
