*135 - The YES! Man

I missed the movie "YES man" from Jim Carrey in the cinema last year and i got my chance to watch it last night... Its not just an empty comedy after all.... If u are into personal development, this movie got it all...
Carl (Jim Carrey) was withdrawn, depressed and inherently negative bout life... He uses all kinds of excuses to rejects every invitation, every call and everything... Until one day he joins a seminar whose the brain-washing speaker had a deal with him that he gotta say YES! to every opportunity, every request and virtually everything...
You should watch the movie... And u'll see wonders lies behind every opportunity given... You never know wat u'd missed for rejecting an offer... There's where after all the YESes, He try every experience, travel spontaneously (he goes where the next flight goes), helped in charity... thus built his network, his relationship, his rapport, and his happy life...
The purpose to recommend u this movie is to remind you 2 fundamental things in personal development:
1. Stop using excuses!
2. Be comfortable with the uncomfortable.

Im sure it occurs to you too... U rejected some jobs or invitation with the excuse of "Im busy" but in truth u're just lying on the sofa to watch tv or worst, doing nothing... Excuses allow you to get away with something you are too scared to do because you feel uncomfortable.... Just say YES!, u never know wat u'd missed...

To get the best out of yourself, u'll have to be confident in everything u do... Everyone tends to avoid the uncomfortable.. like "i dont wanna go, it feels weird"... From here u are generating excuses for the uncomfortable... Change urself... Be comfortable... I got a few breakthrough last sem break and i did gained a lot from there...
Lets be a YES man!

A nicely done review :)
I've watched the movie and I am quite satisfied with it. Tho I have to admit I expected more of Jim.But he did a good job overall :)
I particularly like the main actress, she's pretty & talented XD

But saying Yes all the time isn't all that good.. I suppose.. haha
