Are You a 'Yes' Person?
A "Yes Person" sees what is possible. He or she embraces hardships and works to overcome them. As you know, in this profession, they can occur on a regular basis. Notice I said, embrace hardships, not ignore, run away from or deny them. Instead, they are tackled, head on.
The good news is, if you see yourself as a "No Person," you still have the opportunity and ability to become a "Yes Person." And YES, I do believe it!
