My most favorite inspiration

If you think you're beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win, but think, you can't It's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you will lose, you're lost;
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will,
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you're outclassed, you are;
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to hustle beforeYou can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always goTo the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins Is the one who thinks he can.

-Walter D. Wintle, "The Man Who Thinks He Can"

Yes its been one of those kinds of Mondays. Something i was expecting today, didnt happen..anyway...tomorrow is another day....*

What is the structure of expectation? Is it any different than imagination? How is it different than a wish? How is expectation different than a dream? Are dreams different than nightmares, in its core.

Are we making these distinctions in a continuum that has no such distinctions?

Did we make up the concept of time?

And what about the concept of space? everything is shaken up.

I think its good when fundamentals are challenged.

Your job is to achieve equilibrium. Mine is to throw you off balance! :)

Thats when we learn most. Nobody promised that life will be fair. And learning is painful.
