“Look in the mirror…that’s your competition.”

Too often we fall into a trap of comparing ourselves to other people.  I see this so often in my work with young people, and sadly many adults continue to compare and compete with others their entire life.

“Whether you think you can, or you can’t, you’re right.”

Your thinking determines everything about the quality of your life. The way you think about yourself, and what you are capable of, will become your reality.

It was Henry Ford who said, “Whether you think you can or your can’t, you’re right.”
