We are what we believe to be /相信自己就是肯定自我

Acknowledge the power of the mind: we are what we believe to be.
I have received a valuable gift from my most recent and also the last training session: a quote from Mahatma Gandhi. This is what he said:
Man often becomes what he believes himself to be.
If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it.
On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
These words struck me for a while, as they ring very true with me. Ever since childhood I have hold certain core beliefs about myself that are still carried forward to today. Some good, some not so good. And these beliefs have absolutely affected how I am and do things today. These wise words from Gandhi are just another gentle reminder to know what I am worth and keep good faith in myself more!!
I hope they also mean the same to you.
