So whats is your attitude in general when it comes to ready to take new challenges; Do you say I ’t or are you like the ones who says I can? Can both types of people be right?

The man who says he can, and the man who says he can’t are both correct.

Hello everyone! I am not sure if you remember, but if you have read one of my previous posts, I wrote about a quote from him. To give you a little recap, Confucius was a Chinese philosopher and politician of the Spring and Autumn period. The philosophy of Confucius, also known as Confucianism, emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice, kindness, and sincerity.

So hopefully i gave you a little bit of a better understanding of Confucius. Now, we can learn from one of the beautiful quotes of Confucius. “The man who says he can, and the man who says he can’t are both correct.” It took me a little bit of thinking to fully understand this quote, but don’t worry, i got it. Basically, Confucius is telling us that in order to actually be able to do something, a big part of that is to believe in yourself and show confidence. You cannot expect for it to just happen when you don’t even tell yourself that you can do it.

I am going to give a little bit of a “dumb” example, but if i can do it with this example, you can do it with anything you want.

My example is playing basketball. If I really wanted to, I could push myself to be a professional basketball player, anyone can. Although, even though i said that the main thing is having confidence in yourself, you cannot just expect that believing in yourself will get the job done. You have to push yourself to actually research and learn what you have to do and practice to be able to execute it well.
