The tangent to the circumcircle of triangle $WXY$ at $X$ is drawn, and the line through $W$ that is parallel to this tangent intersects $\overline{XY}$ at $Z.$ If $XY = 14$ and $WX = 6,$ find $YZ.$ [asy] unitsize(2 cm); pair A, B, C, D; A = dir(110); B = dir(210); C = dir(330); D = extension(B, C, A, A + rotate(90)*(B)); draw(Circle((0,0),1)); draw(A--B--C--cycle); draw((B + rotate(90)*(B))--(B - rotate(90)*(B))); draw(A--(A + 2.2*(rotate(90)*(B)))); label("$W$", A, N); label("$X$", B, SW); label("$Y$", C, SE); label("$Z$", D, SW); [/asy]
