Is it possible?

  1. Well, I think you made the form up so you’d have a Q. That’s a joke! (If not a good one.) Really, I like the interplay you evoke–in fifteen syllables–between confidence and questioning. The statement favors confidence with the questions beneath. As confidence works in the mind.

  2. It reminds me of the quote, “if you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t, well, then you can’t.” It’s all in the mind 🙂 And yes, I agree with everyone. You can do it. Of course you can! 😀
