When you say ‘Yes’ to others, make sure you are not saying ‘No’ to yourself. – Paulo Coelho
Meaning of this Quote
Many things are happening with ourselves every day. We interact with each other. All of us exchange their opinions with us. We take some opinions, leave some of them as well. We give some suggestions that people take, sometimes, and don’t like some other times.
However, we should not pressurize someone with our decisions just because we are superior to age, size, post, or other things.
Yes! We all have our opinions; people will have their opinions about different things. These opinions form when we see someone in a situation, and we think what we would have done in that give situation. Then we give suggestions to the people to overcome the problem.
However, it should not become a verdict. You should not tell in such a way that the person lower in the post, age, or in other such aspects from you will agree to your suggestion blindly without thinking or considering their way-outs. Your suggestion should never sound like a verdict or decision that pressurizes someone to get over it.
The same thing also goes in your case; people can only give you suggestion, are you taking it or not is completely depending upon you. But you should always keep your spine straight and up towards the sky.
If someone who is superlative than you in your post, or someone from the senior batches in school, you should not be afraid. You should say ‘Yes’ to their suggestions only if you feel it is right, and it can help you to get out of the situation only then say ‘Yes’.
However, if you think that it is not the right thing to do and you have some better option to opt for, then you should choose the one way you are thinking to overcome the process. So never say ‘NO’ to yourself just to say ‘YES’ to others.
