Every new challenge puts you at the same fork:
Either you think you can or you think you can’t.
In the case of can, you generate the confidence to try in spite of fear. And in trying, you create the opportunity to conquer the challenge or, at the very least, learn something valuable.
In the case of can’t, you walk away from both of these opportunities.
Henry Ford famously said, “Whether you think you can — or you think you can’t — you’re right!”
If you want the best chance to learn and grow, believe in yourself first (you might as well).
Actually say the words “I can” like it’s a matter of fact.
Belief converts into action; action converts into possibilities.
