When a No Makes You Fight For a Yes

by therinamartins

Everyone has a guaranteed no in their lives.

No one has everything handed to them on a silver platter. If they did, I want to know how hard they'll fight for their dreams. Or if they'll break down at the first no they get.

If you want to have a better job, you study hard.

If you want a better life, you dedicate 25 hours to get there. If you want a good husband, you sacrifice precious moments of your lifespan to make sure he's the real one.

If you want to have a ranch

You wake up at four in the morning and work all day, to go to bed at midnight.

If your aim is high,

How much of your time are you willing to sacrifice to achieve that dream? Or is the first no you get the end?

You will always get a no. But I'll let you in on a secret.

Those nos you get? They're there to force you to fight, to create a backbone for yourself. So you'll never slack and depend on others to have a better life.

If your story gets rejected by a publisher,

It's just a way of saying that you need to fight harder, to find new ways to get that desired yes.

A no will always be there.

But it's your call to force it into a yes.

I always love the saying., no is an answer from God... Or thank god for unanswered prayers... To me it's just a way of saying it was not meant to be.. So you try again.. Use a different approach.. Different attitude.. And surprise yourself at just how much more there is to you... Love your poetry.. Sometimes we just have to fight for a Yessssssss

That's amazing. I always think about what all this studying is going to do for me but then I remember my dream job and I get motivated.

@bernardtwindwil I don't, but I plan on it, lol! Maybe in a few years it may just come true, right @anominous?

Now you sound like me! As far as I am concerned you are 110% correct. This was beautifully written. Do you live on a ranch? It usually takes a real rancher to see through all the romance surrounding the noble cowboy on his steed. I did love the solitude of my morning chores allowing me to write novels and short stories in my head. Great Job!!!!!!!!!!!!
