Lines to Remember 4 (Winning Attitude)
‘The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,But in ourselves, that we are underlings.” (Julius Caesar, 1.2.135)
Our full potential is stymied by our low regard of ourselves. We accept too easily that being human means that we are prone to error and that we can’t help being inept.
All these weaken our resolve to be better than what we are because we have set the limits and often we reach them long before we have finished setting them up.
Then we protest our piteous state and look for the blame everywhere else except in our own circumstance.
Every human being is capable of achieving the highest he could ever be; it’s just that even on our best runs we always find a way to lose because we don’t believe we can win.
