THE YES BANK


THE YES BANK

You’re the boss.

     What is the Yes Bank? A river has a bank on each side but they aren’t Yes Banks.

     Maybe you have a piggy bank. Can you keep a piggy in a piggy bank? That’s silly, isn’t it? A piggy bank is a good place to keep money but it isn’t the Yes bank.

     Here’s a hint. You can stand on a river bank but you can’t stand on the Yes Bank. You can hold a piggy bank but you can’t hold the Yes Bank.

     Here’s another hint. When you ask someone to do something, what do you want their answer to be? You want their answer to be "Yes."

     When you ask someone to give you something, what do you want their answer to be? You want their answer to be "Yes."

     When you ask someone to let you do something, what do you want their answer to be. You want their answer to be "Yes."

     When you ask someone to help you, what do you want their answer to be? You want their answer to be "Yes."

     What do you think? Is "Yes" a great answer? It sure is. It’s spectacular and totally terrific.

     The Yes Bank is full of answers. Some of the answers are "No." Some of the answers are "Maybe." Here’s the great news. Some of the answers are "Yes."

     What answer do you want? You want "Yes." That’s why it’s called the Yes Bank. It works like this.

     That’s what the Yes Bank is for. It helps you get people to tell you "Yes." They don’t have to tell you "Yes." They can tell you "No" or "Maybe." You want them to tell you "Yes."

     How do you like that? Do you want to get people to tell you "Yes?" Sure you do. That’s why you need a gigantic Yes Bank.

     Get ready. Here’s another important secret. You’re in charge of the Yes Bank. You’re the only person who can put stuff into the Yes Bank. You’re the Yes Bank boss. You get to be the Yes Bank boss because you’re soooo smart.
