We are what we believe we are.— C.S. Lewis
If we say we can’t do this or that, we are basing this on a belief. If we say we can do this or that, we are basing this on a belief as well. It is easy to make assumptions about ourselves without really testing them out. Even if we have made few failed attempts, we still used that as evidence that we can’t do this or that, therefore our beliefs are reinforced. Instead we could learn from the failed attempts and look for what we’re doing wrong but also look for what we’re doing correctly. We ought to look for real proof instead of looking for a reason not to make an earnest effort to do this or that in our lives. It is amazing what the mind can belief and act accordingly without hesitation. We can believe in ourselves and the body will follow.
