If You THINK You Can - You're Right?

Henry Ford is famously quoted as saying, "Whether you think you can or think you can't - You're Right!"

In the childhood rhyme, 'The Little Engine That Could', we seem to find agreement with this idea when the little engine manages to climb the tall hill by saying, over and over "I think I can, I think I can."
From  In the tale, a long train must be pulled over a high mountain. Various larger engines, treated anthropomorphically, are asked to pull the train; for various reasons they refuse. The request is sent to a small engine, who agrees to try.(emphasis added)  The engine succeeds in pulling the train over the mountain while repeating its motto: "I-think-I-can"
However, we have a clarification in Star Wars, Episode Five, "The Empire Strikes Back" - Yoda tells Master Luke "Do or Do Not Do.  There is no Try."  Along the same line, Napolean Hill teaches, "The human mind can achieve whatever it can conceive and BELIEVE."  (emphasis added).  All these sayings ring true - but merely 'thinking' may be a lot like 'trying'.  Thinking is not ENOUGH!  To rouse the power of the spirit, we must BELIEVE.  When you BELIEVE you unleash your creative power!  What are you believing today?  Aim high and go far!

More Power To YOU!
