I was listening to one of my favourite comedians, Bill Burr. He said something like this.
The secret to being happy is just yes and no. When someone asks you to do something and you feel like doing it, say yes. When someone asks you to do something and you don’t want to do it, say no.
Sounds easy right? The truth is, most of us don’t do it. We suck things up, and then hate ourselves or blame others for it. We blame others, our circumstances, the government, our environment, our culture, our jobs, anything. Perhaps, everything else you think when you are compelled to say yes when you really want to say no, is just noise in the head.
Let’s give it a try guys.
