Follow Your “Yes” – Having your own back

Do you follow your “Yes?”

Following your “Yes” is about you taking a step forward in your partnerships by taking action and applying at least one thing you heard from our guests during their interviews this week.

On today’s episode, all of this week’s guests have generously provided BONUS MATERIAL, not included in the interviews you listened to earlier this week.

Each one has provided incredible examples of the power of following your “Yes”. 


Laurie Gerber

Not Following – Laurie relates back to her interview, discussing when her and her husband were on the brinks of divorce. She had many signs from her inner knowing of how she should be with her husband. She remembers always telling herself when she got home from work, “be nice, be nice, be nice”, and it’s almost like the more she told herself, the more she rebelled.

Following – Laurie describes this moment as the time she was open and he was brave enough to tell her the truth about how he felt. She remembers being taken back at how brave he truly was because she had shut it down for so long. During that moment is when everything else started to come together.

Dr. Jessica Higgins 

Not Following – Jessica referred back to the story she shared in her interview of a guy she was with a long time ago before she met her husband. Jessica wasn’t aware of her patterns during that conflict. Jessica constantly felt compelled to rationalize and defend. She felt a little outside of herself. She was trying to change his perception of her.

Following – Jessica was a clear “yes” to be committed to being connected to herself when entering in relationships. She relates back to when she first met her husband. At first she wasn’t sure if he wanted a relationship or if he was emotionally available. It wasn’t a clear “yes” on him at first but it was a clear “yes” on her. She learned so much from her past relationship that she was able to be vulnerable with him. By her doing that, he began to lean in more and more each time.
