Most of the time, we are tempted to say YES to every opportunity that comes our way. We reason by saying, “I can’t say pass on this, this might be the break that I have been waiting for.” However, it is already too late when we realize that we’ve said YES to many good things and end up getting stressed and burned out. Moral of the story? Not every open door is for us. We need to pause and pray until we have that peace in our hearts that really says “YES” to this.
I read one saying that says “I’ve got to say “NO” to the good so I can say “YES” to the best.
“We need to choose, and the choices we make will ultimately determine how successful we are in the eight crucial areas of life: happiness, health, peace, prosperity, security, friendships, family, and hope. It’s up to you to choose the best and pass up the good.” – Zig Ziglar.
