The fear of failing triumphs over the happiness of winning and that is a tried and tested formula for living an ordinary life. People need to change their perspective towards this. They need to realize that it is not about winning or losing, it is about winning or learning. You need to say YES to opportunities that knock on your door. Saying yes is the best and fastest way to learn and get ahead in life. Here are a few reasons why saying yes is important.

You need to say YES to ideas even if they are not difficult to implement or small in nature. Even the smallest ideas are a step towards the next big thing. You need to turn your whys into ‘Why Not!’. Not only will it help you reach brilliance, but it will make everything more interesting and fun along the way.

It is not a matter of struggling to do the impossible but a matter of proving it possible. You need to work much harder to make it happen and it will give you immense knowledge and satisfaction in the long run.
