Sometimes the things you say no to (or the things that say no to you) define you as much as the things that get your yes.
No to that job opportunity that feels lateral instead of vertical. No to that person who is perfectly wonderful. No to friendships or projects that no longer feed your soul.
No isn't always a failure. In fact, it's often a gift. A form of guidance.
Yes is amazing. Yes will change your life. No might just be the mechanism that gets you there.
