In this week’s episode, we’re dipping into the third and final section of Penduka; PROCESS. The first letter of the acronym is P: Protect Your Yes, and is all about how we steward our “yes”.
What You’ll Hear:
- The wealthiest place on earth might well be the cemetery, with it’s buried dreams and unrealized destinies.
- What if the reason people die still full of potential is because they’ve filled their life with things – even good things – leaving little room for the best things to emerge and take place?
- Saying “yes” to every good thing or person is not necessarily a good thing.
- “Good is the enemy of great” Jim Collins
- Every time we say “yes” to something or someone, we are saying “no” to something or someone else. Every yes comes with an equally weighty no.
- Learning to tell people “no” is especially hard for people pleasers (or RPP, Recovering People Pleasers), but having a firm and intentional belief in your “yes” makes it easier to deliver a prepared, gracious “no”.
- Having healthy boundaries in place make it far easier to say no – and ensure that you’re saying yes to the right things and people.

Food for Thought:
- Be still for a moment and take your soul’s pulse. Are you weary and running on empty? How does your schedule look?
- What have you given your “yes” to that you know you should not have?
- When you’ve honored your commitment, how do you plan to excuse yourself from it?
