Things were moving very quickly when she was dating her ex-husband. For example he was moving quickly, i.e. wanting to get engaged in 4 weeks and she held out for 6 weeks. Other deal breakers that she felt in her gut, but disregarded and ultimately they came back to bite her throughout her marriage.

Following –

She was asked to speak at a TEDx event and was petrified. But knew she wanted to speak and got the help she needed to make it a success.  Saying Yes to something this scary and way out of her comfort zone thing, gave her the confidence to keep pushing the boundaries of her comfort zone, and make her life so much more exciting and inspiring.

Drs. Joy & Roy Martina

Roy – Not listening to his “Yes” when bringing in an investor. He deferred to the investor’s ideas and ultimately it caused him to have to work much harder than he ever had before.

Joy – She received an amazing offer at an advertising agency after graduating from university and even though everything told her “Yes” to do it, she was too scared and missed the opportunity.

Following –

Joy – She had a great business and life going and everything in her said it was time to leave it all and start her life with Roy. It was one of the scariest periods in her life but it has turned out to be the most beautiful and rewarding experience ever.

Often times our rational mind will not agree with what our heart says, but it is worth it.

Roy – His story is similar. He transitioned out of his old business that employed 30 people to start anew with Joy and even though it went against all his experience of building businesses, in hindsight, it was for the best.

When I was dating and my gut was telling me NO. You are working too hard to flip this guy and be entertaining and charming and attractive. 

If I’m having to work really, really, really hard at something. It’s a good idea to check in with my gut.

Following –

With her partner Dave. It was so easy. Easy to be with him. Easy to be herself. She was able to be vulnerable in ways that she could shine in her vulnerability. “That’s a big yes!”

Not Following –

Every time he didn’t follow his gut he paid for it. Specifically when he did not follow his gut in a business partnership that nearly led to a lot of pain.

Following –

A woman came to him for business advice and he got a “Yes” that he needed to ask her to coach him. And it precipitated him drawing a line in the sand. Changing his life and now he is having the best time ever, despite having two forms of cancer.
