You can do it. Not talking about me, I'm talking about you. Whatever you want to be, I believe you can do it.
One caveat: You must choose to act.
Those were the words of wisdom taught to me by a fee-losopher. Unlike normal philosophers, fee-losophers charged dearly for their insights. You get what you pay for, and thus the advice of fee-losophers was held in higher regard than that of the amateurish philosophers.
I did not initially believe the smooth-faced man before me. Belief alone was insufficient. I knew- I had tried many times believing, but no change was wrought. My goals were not being met. It was precisely this desperation that I had sought out the help of the fee-losophers.
"How do I become a ninja turtle?" I had asked the wise man. And he answered, though I was reluctant to trust him.
"Very well. I shall demonstrate," he spoke, sensing my hesitation.
His preparations were meticulous, to say the least. Dabbing his face with generous globs of green camoflague cream, and then putting on a turtle shell costume, the fee-losopher quickly began to resemble a ninja turtle in appearance.
"Now watch closely, as I will begin my demonstration."
It was a miracle. Before me no longer stood a human, but a ninja turtle performing all sorts of advanced martial acrobatics.
And then he stopped, and once more became a green-faced man dressed in a funny suit.
"H-how did you do this, MASTER!?"
He only grinned.
"Did you not listen closely? One caveat: You must choose to act.
You must hone your acting skills!"
