A Gentle Reminder…

A mother was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her teenage son.  Suddenly the boy bursts into the kitchen.

“Careful! Careful! Put in some more butter! Oh my goodness! You’re cooking too many at once. TOO  MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my! WHERE are  we going to get MORE BUTTER? They’re going to STICK! Careful!…  CAREFUL! I said CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you’re cooking!  Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind?  Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!”

The mother stared at him.

“What’s wrong with you? You think I don’t now how to fry a couple of eggs?”

The son calmly replied, “I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m trying to play hockey.”

The Winner’s Creed

If you think you are 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 certain, you won’t.

 If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost;
Since out in our world we find
success begins with a person’s will,
It’s all in your state of mind.

 Life’s battles don’t always go
to the stronger or faster hand;
But sooner or later
the person who wins
is the one who thinks…..“I CAN”.
