Most of us are programmed to say, "No."
How can we experience more out of life?
By saying, "Yes!"
Do you have trouble accepting compliments? If so, start by saying two things, "Yes" and "Thank you."
Start accepting the good that is trying to come to you!
Stop repelling it! Don't ping-pong it back to the person without fully accepting and receiving it.
For example, when someone when someone says, "Thank you," do you immediately turn and say, "No, thank you." If you do this, you just pushed their compliment back to them, without accepting and acknowledging the good they were trying to shower onto you!
Take a minute, stop and say fully, "You are welcome!"
If you want more?
Start with a "yes."
Look at yourself in the mirror and instead of criticizing, give yourself a compliment.
Say, "Hello Beautiful" Or "Hey, Good-Looking."
Smile and let yourself receive it. For once, give yourself a break, let yourself off the hook!
When someone says, "You look nice."
Say, "Thank you."
Allow yourself to receive it and own it.
If you want to experience more out of life, start allowing yourself to receive. It's really just that simple!
Take it all in! Drink in what life has in store for you!
Take a baby step toward receiving the small things in life and be amazed how much better you feel and how much more shows up!
