I believe that if you put your mind to it, that you can do anything that you want to. You should never let anyone tell you that you can not do something. The more that you let a person tell you that you can not do something the more that you are going to believe it , and the more that it is going to become true, and you will not be able to do it. So basically I think that if you set your mind on it you can do anything.

An example of this is say that you wanted to play a sport and everyone was telling you that you were not good enough and you were not going to make the team. The more that you listened to those people the more you would believe it, but instead if you did not listen to them and you went and practiced a lot and became better at it the more you would believe that you can do it no matter what people say. I think that people should not be able to say that you can never do anything. I mean really who do they think that they are. I aslo think that everyone deserves a second chance. Everyone messes up sometimes and they be allowed to have a second chance. If they keep doing the same thing over and over agaaing then they should not deserve any more chances.
