To Our Readers

If you believe you're just not good enough, is there anything you can do about it? My friend, a professional tennis instructor, will tell you there is. Every so often one of his students will say that he or she just doesn't get it." "I'm not coordinated," the student will announce with a noticeable degree of frustration. Or, "I'm really not very good."

At that point my friend stops the lesson. He'll walk over to the student and say, in essence, "What if you were to think exactly the opposite? Instead of thinking you are uncoordinating, think of yourself as very coordinated!" He isn't being cruel or pushy. But he isn't joking, either. That's because my friend has seen a real change for the better in both the attitude and the performance of those who see themselves in a positive light.
