If you think you can do it, or you think you can’t do it, You are right ~ Henry Ford

When you say you can’t

When you don’t believe you can do something then most likely you will not even tray. But when you try half-heartedly, then you won’t reach into all of your reserves to give it your all. You will see every failure as proof that you can’t do it. The failures will reinforce your beliefs, and you will move further away from the goal.

When you say you can

If you think that you can do it, then you will put more effort into your actions. You will also experiment and keep at it for a longer time. When you fail, you will take the failure as just another step in the process. The optimism and repetitions will train your brain and body. You will get better with each attempt, each failure.

Then suddenly you can do it.

Of course, there are simpler things. Let’s take Benji jumping. There’s practically no skill involved. It’s only your decision to do it or not. The same goes for asking for help. Talking to that gorgeous crush you have been having.

Just say yes!
