If you're doing anything worthwhile (and I mean anything), you're going to hear 'no' a lot.
No - it's not what we're looking for.
No - the timing isn't right.
No - we're not ready for this yet.
No - you are out of your flipping mind.
You can be crushed by No. It seems so permanent and heavy. Immovable.
But maybe we can look at it a different way. Because life really is about odds and oddsmakers, maybe every No helps build the ladder to Yes. The roulette wheel spins, but only if you're at the table.
Which means it might be good to give thanks to the No. Just moments before trying again.
