(Nay)Say What?!

"You want to do what?"

"Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you."

"Now just isn't the best time."

"But what if something bad happens?"

Oh yes, you recognize those all too well, don't you? Can hear them just as clearly as you read the words, right? Those are the voices of your naysayers. Bold, confident, assertive, educated and experienced. The ones who, under the guise of coming to your aid, shoot down every shred of positivity in your attitude, your plan, your dreams. Oh surely they mean well...they just don't know! They don't know that they're living in fear. And their fears vary--fear of lack, fear of bad people, fear of rejection. And so they advise you to fear. "Be veeeery careful!" they warn. And they sound so convincing that you're almost sure that they are right. They're not! There is always going to be some hurdle on the path to your success--be it a down economy, a competitor, finances, lack of experience. Whatever your hurdle, it CAN be overcome--with careful planning and preparation, research, patience and faith. All you have to do is make the effort in the general direction of your desired outcome and it will produce fruit.

So, the next time your naysayers attempt to fill your head with fearful, negative thoughts, combat them with these:

"This is what I WILL do."

"Phew, it's a good thing you aren't me."

"NOW is the only time I am ever guaranteed to have to get anything done!"

"But what if something GOOD happens?!"

Say what?! That's right--it is your time now. Keep the faith.
