At the core of saying ‘yes’ to anything is a decision: a decision to choose this idea, action, person, or object over all others. The word decide comes from the Latin decidere (de- ‘off’ + caedere ‘cut’) or to cut off. Whenever we make a decision, we are saying yes to one thing and no to everything else. This is why many people can get stuck in a rut. They cannot say ‘yes’ to the one thing because they don’t want to give up all of the potential and possibility existing in everything else. But if we want to live into our mission, we must learn to make a decision and say ‘yes.’
