Very true I think - a thought for Friday

{from}

Looking back, most of the things in my life I would consider successes, most of what I am proud of accomplishing, are things I have done after making the decision to not play by someone else's rules.

In cases where I can see a clear line from start to finish and how I came to be where I am today, I can point out where I would have been lead off that path if I hadn't just said "yes" because I wanted something - and if I had said no instead, because I felt like I didn't deserve it or believed people when they said I wasn't up to the task.

"Say yes, and you'll figure it out afterwards..." - the story of my life.
