for a long time, i lived in fear. i was afraid. i was afraid to be wrong.
i was scared to hear someone say no to me.
i know, such a simple 2 letter word.
but honestly, it ate away at me.
& not knowing what to do, i let it get to me.
i let hearing that one syllable word control me.
my mind would race with confusion. my head would pound.
it was awful.
but one day after hearing the word no, i understood
i could use that two letter word as motivation + inspiration
the word didn't need to stop me
& it wouldn't.
why put life on hold?
why live the same way day after day?
and if i didn't ask, the answer is pretty simple, no.
so if the answer is a no if you don't do anything, i realized if i did something there was the possibility that it might be a yes.
why wait any longer delaying my potential?
a no is only a no until i turn it into a yes
ask and be surprised
got feedback? i'd love to know...how, specifically, have you handled being told no? how did you respond to turn that no into a yes? what worked and what didn't?
