I watched the 4 year old boy try to get entire cake from mom. Like a good mother, she does not allow the 4 year old to have the whole cake. She offers a bite. He refuses it. He wants the entire thing.
Think big. Push boundaries. Be bold. Be unreasonable about what you want and what you’re willing to do get it.
Start by taking a step. Take the first bite that’s there for you. Then work to get the next one. You’ll get your whole cake if you push hard enough. It will just take longer than you want. Most things do.
You could just push for the whole cake and refuse the bite. Or you can have your cake and eat it, too.
