One day, his precocious student accidentally broke the cup.
Hearing the footsteps of his teacher,

We may not always be aware of it, but we all create
and repeat affirmations constantly.

while our inner dialogue says...
I hope this works.
I am so nervous about this.
I hope I don't blow it.

If we say, This is never going to work
... then chances are excellent it never will.
