A Quote

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning. - Mahatma Gandhi

I read this on Ali's blog this morning and it really struck a chord.

And since you are fearfully and wonderfully made, your creator will be sure that you can do all that you need to do. Isn't that a wonder!

i try to say that to myself all the time... kind of like 'what you put out into the universe you will get back' (yes, i am reading 'the secret' LOL). so, if i get the thought in my head that 'i can't do that' or 'i'm not good enough to do that', i try to stop that thought and say instead, 'who says i can't do that' - i need to try it and think positive thoughts rather than negative.
tfs that great quote - it's one of my favorties (up there with henry ford "whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right)
have a great weekend!
