THE POWER OF YES is a mantra that you’ll hear often at the Nason Group. Over the years, not only have we seen this mindset free individuals, teams, and organizations to be able to innovate, we also gotten to see this mindset change lives. In our first blog about the power of yes (No, No, No! The Power Of Yes), I proposed that THE POWER OF YES in innovation is a continual learning process–-every week, every day, and sometimes every minute.
After living into this ongoing learning process, I’d like to tell you about how this mantra and mindset has changed and shaped my life.
To get started, please take a couple of minutes and watch the video. Then, engage the calls to action listed below to claim THE POWER OF YES in your own life.
Here are three calls to action to consider as you engage the POWER OF YES:
GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE. It’s easy to grow complacent and comfortable with current situations including our jobs, homes, relationships, and mindsets. Remember, “It begins at the end of your comfort zone!”
- CALL TO ACTION: Find one thing in your life–-personal or professional–-and stretch yourself. Test yourself on how far you are willing to move out of your comfort zone. You will be amazed what is on the other side.
LOOK FOR UNDISCOVERED TALENTS. I am who I am today because of people in my life who could see beyond my own vision for myself. They challenged me to see myself in bigger and better places.
- CALL TO ACTION: Find one person for whom you can point out undiscovered talents. Mentor this person by showing them something that they don’t yet see and help them explore it. Most importantly, say YES to them!
EVALUATE YOUR MINDSET. Although this is not easy, it will benefit you more than anything else you do from reading this blog. Our own mindsets often prevent us from achieving the impossible.
- CALL TO ACTION: Take five minutes today to find a quiet place and evaluate the mindsets that control your personal and professional lives. Ask, “What is stopping me from moving forward to the next great thing in my life?
We would love to hear your thoughts on how these calls to action are helping and transforming you and your teams. Please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
