Publisher's Summary

Say Yes gives you the mental and spiritual practices you need to enjoy your life again - and bring greater fullness than you could imagine before.

"My life doesn't look anything like I wanted it to. How do I even keep going?" When the dreams for our life die, our vision of who we hoped to become often dies too. That's when The Voice of Giving Up appears. 

Visual artist and spiritual director Scott Erickson has had long midnight conversations with The Voice of Giving Up, and he knows how anxiety and depression make The Voice especially loud. But he's discovered that our darkest moments are sometimes doorways to a deeper, more joy-filled journey of recovering who we are, why we're here, and why the future bursts with possibilities if we are willing to say yes to life's brightest gifts. 

In Say Yes, Scott helps you learn how to reawaken your deepest desires, disempower your greatest fears, and identify the destructive narratives holding you back. This is a profound exploration of beginning again after:

  • Disappointment at how life is turning out
  • Suspecting we are not prepared or smart enough
  • Losing hope that change is possible and that pain can have a purpose

Take the first step to gain the gentle yet powerful tools you need, and say yes to what lies ahead today.

I really enjoyed his artistic view of concepts.

Scott's artistic thinking made me think deeper about the principles he was sharing. I really enjoyed the book.

Clips and Notes

Loved this book and will listen to it again. I have already shared it because I want/need to talk about it with others. Also, there has not been a previous audio book where I’ve wanted to use the clip and notes function so often.

Transformational!

Scott Erickson goes above and beyond leading and guiding us into a place where we are able to come face to face with the meaning of our existence. To face that existence head on and maybe in the end come out with a little more hope than despair. With a new outlook on death and life, and on the death and rebirth of dreams. I absolutely loved it and hope you will too!

Fan-freaking-tastic!!

Wow, wow, wow!! I just finished this and I’m already thinking about giving it another listen. So good. The author gives you reason to have hope, show yourself compassion and to not give up. I appreciate that he’s not out to convert anyone, and takes an honest view on some “beliefs” out there. I’m almost speechless and so grateful that this book was thrust in front of me by The Giver. I highly recommend to anyone feeling like they are at a crossroad or feeling defeated by life not panning out the way they thought it would. Best book I’ve experienced in a while!!
