    Yes, you are so right. I often share this message with my learners. Once I wanted to attend a summer conference but assumed there would be no way. I checked my thinking and came up with three possible answers from my administrator; yes, maybe-a qualified yes, and no. So, ⅔ ain’t bad, I went for it. I and another colleague got to go. This lead to a whole team going the following year, a couple of grants, and other workshops. All too often we prefilter our opportunities thus missing out on some wonderful experiences.
