About the Book
In this wise little parable, readers follow a narrator who ventures
into the Land of No in search of Yes. He learns by watching others
as they search, flounder, and eventually become disillusioned by
seemingly inevitable rejection. Though each of the characters is
passionate about their cause, they all fail because they do not
effectively deal with the obstacles they face. By watching their
mistakes, the narrator learns how to persevere despite the No's,
and ultimately succeeds in finding the elusive Yes. Through his
journey, readers discover how they, too, can persist in the face of
frequent No's. Both the No's uttered by those around them and, even
more significantly, the No's sounded by their own inner voice. The
parable comes complete with quizzes, tips, checklists, and how-to
strategies that enable readers to achieve goals and deal with
rejection, roadblocks, and negativity.
