Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are right!

- By Henry Ford

In my opinion, this quote implies that your self confidence or your belief on your self or your ability can determine what you achieve. If you have a herculean task in front of you, if you think you can overcome it, then you are right, you can overcome it. However, if you equally think you can't overcome it, then you are still right. You won't overcome it. It's the power of attitude.

Reminds me of David and Goliath.

Your attitude determines your altitude. In summary, let's cultivate positive attitude in life. Then we will achieve great things.

Another similar quote: If you can conceive it, you can achieve it.

Have a blessed day.

Alright, I will try.

Leadership (being a commander) requires having been a good follower. To be a good leader, you must also have learned how to be a good follower. Only then will you be able to lead your team very well because you have been in their shoes.

Any contrary opinion? :mrgreen:

The earlier we see mistakes as lessons in life, the more successful we can be. Many people fail their way to success. Mistakes are good things especially if you endeavor to learn from them and don't make same twice.

@John F. Kennedy on #Change:
Change is n inevitability. To stay relevant, you need to embrace change, understand change plan fo4 change. If you keep boasting of past and maybe present glory without positioning yourself or your business for future (change), then death is an inevitability.
Change - is the future of everything.

"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."

One of the most inspiring sayings I have ever heard. Be original. Be yourself. Be unique. In everything, copycats rarely succeed.

Your own talents and gifts will definitely find you your own spot in the life matrix.

A take home.

#half-full or #half-empty cup:

It's all about positive attitude in life. You can spend your whole life with gratitude for all good things you have, or spend it on agony of lamentations for the things you wish you had but don't.

@Martin Luther King Jr, proceeding to plant the apple trees shows positive outlook and determination.

It shows focus and maturity. It shows vision and a firm resolve to do what is right even when the future looks gloomy.

I'm inspired.

Practice makes perfect. Practice is a vital step of preparation. And he who fails to prepare prepares to fail! :mrgreen:

"Opportunity is a haughty goddess who wastes no time with anyone not prepared."

Wow! My favorite quote from the book: THE RICHEST MAN IN BABYLON

this saying emphasized that opportunity comes to everyone but only those who are prepared recognize it and utilize it. But for someone who's unprepared, this proud/haughty goddess called opportunity quickly moves on without wasting time with them.

Lesson: be prepared. When the opportunity comes, you will recognize it, and you can grab it. Then people will say... You're lucky!

Whereas, luck is simply when opportunity meets with preparedness.

Cheers.

Believe you can and you're half way there

Whatever thing you are aiming at or aspiring for, believe in yourself that you can make it and you're almost to get it.

Believing that you can do it, will make you achieve what you're aiming at, never lose hope and never relent in believing.

LESSON: Whatever situation you are in life believe you can overcome it, never look down on yourself, have confidence in yourself that you can do it.

Looking down on yourself will also hinder you from achieving it, in life, determination is the key, say to yourself 'i am determined to make it, and i'm also making it'.

With that, also popping in your mouth and mind, i think achieving what you wish or desire is halfway achieved.

Cheers! Peeps.

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is right now."

This quote will make us appreciate timeliness more and win the enemy called procrastination. Eat that frog! Do it now! Don't procrastinate.

There is a remarkably insightful statement about self-esteem that is usually credited to Eleanor Roosevelt, the diplomat and former First Lady: No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
