Perception of Self.

To think we cannot is to Not at all

Marcus Aurelius talked about how our life takes on the color of our thoughts. If you hold a perpetually negative outlook, soon enough everything you encounter will seem negative. And in those moments when you don’t think you can do something, it’s very likely you won’t be able to do it.

Instead, Marcus said, “color your mind with the right thoughts, color them with what’s possible, not to assume it’s impossible because you find it hard.”

That is not to say that things won’t be hard, regardless of your outlook. But you are more capable than you know.
