Here’s a little story to help illustrate this idea. Two high school athletes are preparing to compete against each other. They are the same size, and they have about the same athletic abilities. Everyone assumes that it will be an exciting match. The first athlete runs out. He looks confident, and as he waits, he warms up and stretches. The people nearby hear him say to himself, “I’m ready. I can do this.” The second athlete appears. He slowly shuffles out with his head down, and as he waits, he fidgets with his watch. Those nearby hear him mutter, “I’m gonna get killed.” Two athletes—same size, same abilities. Even before the competition begins, everyone knows who’s going to win. Whether you’re an athlete preparing for competition or a student tackling a difficult subject, it’s important that you believe in yourself. You need to recognize the talents and abilities you have, and you must believe that you can succeed! In the grid below, list the courses that you are currently taking.
