You Can Do It if You Believe

Quotes and Notes #114, February 25

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.”–J.M. Barrie, “Peter Pan”

I’m sure that we all doubt our abilities periodically, but we mustn’t allow these doubts to stop us from trying to reach our goals, no matter how difficult they may be.

This quote brings to mind a story that my mother read to me many times when I was a child. The name of the story was “The Little Engine that Could” and it was about the smallest train engine which, against all odds, pulled its load to the top of a big hill. And how did it accomplish this? It reached the top not by saying “I know I can do it” but by saying, over and over, “I think I can, I think I can, I thinkicanIthinkIcan” until the job was done.

A positive attitude will help us to achieve seemingly impossible goals. Add a smile to that equation and you have a winning combination.

Everything is going to be all right
