The first time you hear about it, it seems impossible, insurmountable.
No way you can do this. You don’t know how. You don’t know the people who know how. Even if you did, it would take forever.
No way. Too much. Too hard.
But you want it.
So one day, when the No Ways are napping, you look into this a little bit more.
Maybe you brew a nice fragrant pot of tea and sit down to some online research. Maybe you invest a hundred dollars in asking someone the exact questions you need to feel less scared, to feel bigger.
Maybe you dare to make a plan.
Maybe you take the next tiny right step.
Then another. Then one more.
Little by little, you get to know this thing and you find that when you talk about it, it feels familiar, manageable, almost friendly. Possibly fun.
The next step. Then the next.
Almost no fear left, just a little tingle of “holly s** I’m doing this,” once in a while. Mostly, not much. Just some good steps, some solid steps.
You’ve up leveled.
It feels good, it feels real. It feels like you.
And the next time the No Ways try to whisper in your ear, you may just answer: Yes Way.
