Positiveness

Are you yes person?

what is positiveness?

How to be positive?
We should delete from our vocabulary the answer (no) or (I can not) to any offer made by us or the position we are exposed to, it determines our ability before even we knock on the door, and consolidates the idea of ​​failure, fear and hesitation in your subconscious mind because of recurrence which forces you to believe in yourself which in turn are programmed your subconscious mind your responses because of the negative. Must get used to say (yes) and welcome to any experience and fought because we much often surprise ourselves of our capabilities and capacity to learn new things and coping with all the flexibility for every thing to him the first time, all we need is self confidence and look at the bright side of things and expect the best always, and extraction the positive things no matter how little because it will help us in the future.

yes person

If a person is a yes person how do they deal with people who are not or people who are no people and are resistant to helping which creates more work for the yes people

Evan,,, yup ,, I agree with

Evan,,, yup ,, I agree with your attitude.but I am not sure that we always most say YES in some cases we most have that courage to say NO too.
Saying No with positiveness also is important!!

One of my mentors always says

One of my mentors always says - To make better choices in life, you must purposely expose yourself to people and experiences outside your circle. It may be uncomfortable at first, but the experiences and knowledge gained will expand your horizon of opportunity and development. When you expand your horizon through exposure, you will no longer make decisions based on limited information, you now have more options to consider.

Even the positive can come out of interaction with the negative people

A candle looses nothing my lighting another

I think we say YES to all positive things that will empower us and bring the best out of us and NO to whatever force that push us down and make us good for nothing.

The importance of choosing

Sisters,
I agree to some extant with all of you. I will just add a consideration I would like to share.
Saying YES, saying NO depend on a choice. It is not important whether we say yes or no, what counts is that the choice must be ours. Once we acquire esteem in our capability to make a choice which maybe others will not understand, we can be sure our way to personal freedom is open. Also, what I think is important to have, is the capability to negotiate. Negotiate with people around and negotiate with life and what it has in store for us, for at times we have to accept things the way they come, and make the most out of them.
Intelligence, wisdom and self esteem will make a goddess of a woman.

Good Discussion

One important aspect of the delivery to the idea of ​​failure and despair is the attempt by the cumulative impact of negative attitudes and outstanding or resolved without deciding it, creating a bottleneck situation where you are and without knowing that you find problems related to each other and lead to another.
will remind you by a simple sentence or position or a scene which will pull a series of problems stored in your subconscious mind to manifest before you to lined calamity panic that leads to disability, paralysis and then the delivery of failure and rejection.
Not to mention the ocean and the environment of Basit things that may not pay attention to them, but provide us with energy - negative or positive - every day as a smile, the color of paint, clothing, traffic jams, Decoration, type of music as well as the most important humans around you ..
We have to try as much as possible to avoid or minimize the mixing with people who have negative energy who always frustrating the others , whatever the situation as simple and trivial,
because they simply preferred to sit in the dug dark and dragging the others to fall in,
because of their laziness and fear of trying to bring about change may light come through it.

thank you so much for your opinions ladies

Maybe :)

If diplomat says "yes" it means "maybe"
If diplomat says "maybe" it means "no"
If diplomat says "no" it is ... not diplomat

If a woman says "no" it means "maybe"
If a woman says "maybe" it means "yes"
If a woman says "yes" it is not a woman :)

I mean with this joke just happen situations when you say "NO" and after that you feel so incredibly positive! ;)
I like this chat, really, it is very interesting how we find different situations when better say "yes" or "no"

SELF ESTEEM

I have enjoyed the various comments, but my take is that , as long as someone has low self esteem, then she will always find saying 'no' so offensive, un natural.... because she is not certain how the person receives the response. But asl long as a woman has a high self esteem, then she will be able to evaluate her response best in regard to how it impacts on her (first) then second to how it affects the other person. She will always be able to evaluate her responses before giving it.

So imparting skills on raising self esteem is very critical especially among women.

Self judgement counts

I agree with you grace. To succeed in life one needs not to be evaluated by others, but self evaluation counts more. remember, its not what people talk about us that yields but what we do in order to attract attention of others which can either be negative or positive attention.

Women of values

A 28 female youth on September 2, 2011 became the new leader of the Swedish Center Party. To me this is a woman of value. Slow but sure the youth and women are taking charge.
