Words of Wisdom
"Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Most of us have heard this many times in different variations. The Little Engine That Could simply said: "I think I can. I think I can." We become - for better or for worse - what we think and believe about our abilities. So much of one's success in the classroom and in life depends on believing in one's ability. We each have the potential to succeed and live a whole and full life. We simply have to believe it.
