Don’t take “No” for a final answer, especially if you’re the one saying it to yourself.

Your homework today is to stop saying No to yourself!

If it’s because you’re overwhelmed or intimidated, then break steps down into small parts, little pieces, and tiny bits. Break these down until you get to smidgens and specks that are just the right size for you.

If you’re saying No because you can’t seem to come up with the answers you need, then look at the situation from different angles. Also, perhaps thinking of the opposite of it you may see a finger hold you can use to boost yourself.

If you’re saying No because you’ve tried everything—breaking things down into the smallest pieces possible and you’ve looked at things from all sorts of angles—but you still can’t move forward, then perhaps you may need to take a step back from it. You may need to take a break.

This is not the same thing as saying No!

Perhaps you need to give surrounding events a chance to come together or to shift in a way that enables you to move forward with your project.

Keep at it, keep going!

You can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
