#228: The Most Powerful Word People Often Say But Rarely Mean



Five years ago I embarked on an unknown journey. My sense was I was being invited to a place I had never been, and I was filled with uncertainty. (Which is the anatomy of an adventure!)

I said “yes”, even though I didn’t have all – or any – of the answers.  When I said “yes”, I did so without hesitation, without reservation, and with all of my heart.

As a result, I’m living a life I never knew possible. There is, however, a next chapter in the story.

Does your “YES” truly mean “YES”?

Episode Summary:

  • Saying yes is one thing. Knowing what it means when you say it is an entirely different story.


  • What I am asking you today:
    • Look back over the last few months and years
    • Where have you come from?
    • Where are you today?
    • Has God proven Himself to you so far?
    • Can you trust Him with the next phase of the journey?

     He will not rob you of what you need

     He does not pleasure in taking from us

     He is leading you forward

     Say YES … Trust the process

     Believe again … there are great days ahead!

Closing Thoughts:

  • Maybe you find yourself in a good place
  • Maybe you are afraid saying YES to your next level requires some things of you
  • Know whatever is NEXT is better than where you are
  • Double-mindedness never produces life
  • Let Your “YES” Truly Mean “YES”

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

The new year brings new openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …

Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
