I think I can

“Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right.”

Who said it:  Henry Ford

We all know that Henry Ford was an American industrialist, and founder of the Ford Motor Company – and the sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. Me, I remember him for producing a car that could never quite match the Holden at Bathurst (there's my inner rev-head coming out!).

Why I like it:

Because it's so simple but so true. Self-belief is the most powerful force. In moments where I know my confidence is lacking or I'm feeling a little out of my depth, I draw on that inner strength that my Dad gave me – that I can do anything I want to do if I really put my mind to it.
