Belief + effort = disappointment

Turns out that self-belief, the confidence to apply to a great school, matters more than the school you went to, which is good because UdaCity grads are not exactly tearing up the job market at the moment.

Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re probably right. Except in your case. In your case no matter what you think, you are wrong. Dead wrong.

Be the person who thinks you can not the person who can think
