The Migration of Butterflies -- Writer's Poke #391





I like being told “no,” don’t you?

Maybe you are a normal person, and being told “no” is not high on your list of likes. I, for one, know that back in the day, I never liked the prospect of being told “no” by a girl, but these things happen. And those “no’s” which don’t kill us only make us stronger, yes? And really, when has a “no” ever killed anyone?

Do the research. “No” is not lethal. In fact, “no” can be the tool necessary for your success. Let the “no” pulsate through your body. Soak in the “no,” and do something with its power. Let it make you stronger.

Yes, the “no” can drive you forward, and that’s how I try to use it. “No” can ruin your life, if you let it, or you can bounce off its surface and reach new heights. Appreciate the “no,” and live up to your potential. Remember to be grateful to the “no,” because too many easy “yes’s” will only keep you weak and flabby.

What is your approach to being told “no”?

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.” – Seneca
