Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on our own expectations for ourselves. (Denis Waitley, motivational speaker)

Remember the story of the Little Engine that made it up the hill because he thought he could? Apparently, Waitley concurred. Self-image is important in determining one’s failure or success. The person who acts with confidence will more likely succeed and achieve his goals. To the contrary, the uncertain person may not reach his goals, because he really doesn’t expect to.

The hopes of the godly will be granted . . . The hopes of the godly result in happiness (Proverbs 10:24, 28).
