#150 ~ How to Say Yes with Jenny Taylor

It’s easy to say no.

All you have to do is find something else to do, and over time you will forget about the moment you submitted to your anxiety and fear.

However, the next time that situation presents itself, the same feelings will resurface and you won’t have the built skillset required to transcend the challenge.  

That’s why on today’s episode of Old Souls & Seekers, we are joined by Jenny Taylor to discuss the importance of saying yes. Often in our lives, we run into challenging situations that trigger our reflex to turn the other way. When we do this, we validate our anxieties, making it more difficult to conquer them.

Tune in to this conversation to hear how to reverse this habit, and create a more forward-thinking approach to your day-to-day!
