In life, satisfaction is experienced when activities are brought to a state of completion. Loss of energy and loss of control are functions of incompletion.

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.
-- Mahatma Gandhi
