Skill to do comes of doing.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

What do you think?

Do you think that all the world is against you? Then it is. Do you really think that you can succeed against all odds? Then you can. Do you think that today will be tedious and boring? Then it will be. Do you think that you can make a difference? Then you will.

Whatever you think, is true for you. Whatever you truly believe, is the reality which you’ve imposed on yourself. What do you think? And why do you think it? Do your thoughts serve you, or do they hinder you?

If you are to do anything, you must first think that you can do it. Thinking does not make it happen. That takes action. Thinking, however, makes it possible. Think carefully. Whatever you truly think, whether positive or negative, you’ll find a way to make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
