A ‘Yes’ Face

During Thomas Jefferson’s presidency he and a group of travelers were crossing a river that had overflowed its banks. Each man crossed on horseback fighting for his life. A lone traveler watched the group traverse the treacherous river and then asked President Jefferson to take him across. The president agreed without hesitation, the man climbed on, and the two made it safely to the other side of the river where somebody asked him: “Why did you select the President to ask this favor?” The man was shocked, admitting he had no idea it was the President of the United States who had carried him safely across. “All I know,” he said, “is that on some of your faces was written the answer ‘No’ and on some of them was the answer ‘Yes.’ His was a ‘Yes’ face.

Is yours a ‘Yes’ face or a ‘No’ face in the eyes of others????

We all see eachother everyday, we meet known and unknown faces at the corridor, at the lift, at the cafeteria and so on… are we sending ‘Yes’ messages or ‘No’ messages to eachother?
