There is a book called The Enemy Called Average by John Mason. I recommend it. I’ll share some things I learnt that seem so simple, but will make a world of difference if you adopt today.

yes-and-no

One of the tricks of the devil is to get us to say yes to too many things. Then we end up being spread so thin that we are mediocre in everything and excellent in nothing. There is one guaranteed formula for failure, and that is to try to please everyone.

There is a difference between something that is good and something that is right. There comes a time in every person’s life when he must learn to say no to many good ideas. In fact, the more an individual grows, the more opportunities he will have to say no. Perhaps no other virtue is so overlooked as a key to growth and success. Becoming focused is a key to results.

There is power in the word “No”. No is an anointed word; one that can free you from burdens you really don’t need to be carrying. No can be used to turn a situation from bad to good, from wrong to right. It can also allow you to devote the correct amount of attention and effort to God’s priorities in your life.

I’m sure that as you’re reading this, some past experiences and present situations come to mind. I’m sure you can even recall many situations where no or not right now would have been the right answer. Don’t tell those put you down; just don’t yourself through that kind of disappointment in the future.

Yes and No are the two most important words that you will ever say. These are the two words that determine your destiny in life. How and when you say them affects your entire future. Saying no to lesser things can mean saying yes to the priorities in your life.
