You Can Do It!
By: Marguerite Kono
As we approach our midterms I’m sure you are all immersed in studying for them. If you are among the lucky students who aren’t stressing over midterms, but are simply chugging along with your assignments and quizzes, I’m sure you will still appreciate the sentiment as well. I thought I would take this opportunity to share some uplifting and motivational quotes and statements with you.
"SUCCESS CONSISTS OF GOING FROM FAILURE TO FAILURE WITHOUT LOSS OF
ENTHUSIASM." -Winston Churchill
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to
always to try just one more time." - Thomas A. Edison
"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 belie 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
"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal."
- Henry Ford
I hope these inspirational tidbits remind you to continue to persevere and to conquer that midterm, project, or assignment. You have worked so hard to get to this point and you owe it to yourself to achieve a successful outcome. Good luck to one and all!
