This post is not really code-related, but I think the motivational principles still apply to coding and other similar goals.
I was watching American Ninja Warrior when I saw Jessie Graff become the first woman to clear Stage One in the National Finals.
I was especially inspired reading some of her quotes:
I was amazed to see how as I increased my strength, I got so much better at everything. Things that seemed hard or impossible became easy. I literally doubled my upper body strength.
If I see someone else do something that I thought was impossible, the fact that they’ve done it and proven it’s possible means that I should be able to do it too
I think what I am trying to express is that to become a code ninja, I just need to tackle one obstacle at a time, and eventually things that looked impossible will become easy for me 🙂
