I believe that everyone in the world can achieve whatever they want, if they put their mind to it. I also believe that if people didn’t assume things we would have more doctors and lawyers. I believe this because most of the people in our world just assume that they can’t achieve something, when really they have no idea because they lack the effort to try. I believe that if someone tries their best to achieve any significant goal in their life and fail, they should still be happy with themselves. They should be happy with themselves because they know more than anyone that they gave it their all.
