Its amazing how we make up our minds for others. We truly believe and we tell others that “nobody will” and “nobody is”.

  • I don’t have a business because “nobody will” buy from me.   
  • I haven’t asked because “nobody will” help me.  
  • I haven’t included anyone because “nobody is” interested. 
  • There “is nobody”.
  • ”Nobody” will show up.

The truth is that as long as we believe that “nobody is” or “nobody will”, as long as we speak that, then, it will remain true.  It’s like we have “nobody” to blame, so we just don’t, besides, who is responsible for the way that we feel when we’re told no?

The next time you find yourself thinking or saying “nobody”, ask yourself a series of questions:

  1. Is that true?
  2. What if someone will help?
  3. What if someone is available?
  4. If I don’t ask, will I know for sure?
  5. If I do ask, whats the worse that could happen?
  • A bruised ego because we’re told no?
  • If you’re anything like me, you were told No as a kid, then you’d just move on to the next thing.
  • For some of us, when one parent or guardian said no, we’d go ask the other parent or guardian. 

Do you really believe that nobody will?
