You are on the cusp.
Teetering on the edge.
You’re primed for impact. You can feel it, sense it, see it… just there.
But something is in the way. A little obstacle. You can’t quite see it, but you know it’s there.
“If only this”…. or “if only that".
Sometimes a little shift goes a long way.
Subtly change the words you use. Do what you’d do if you were sure, even if you aren’t. Say no to some. Charge more. Stand on your head. Put your hand up.
