    That's true. However, I do feel that sometimes some people need to feel excellent because they may be in a very difficult situation that causes them to believe that they simply cannot succeed. This could potentially be very serious. It's important to support these people and make sure they realise that they are equal to everyone else because they are better than they thought. (I have disregarded my own opinion of everyone being excellent in some way or other as that is a different matter).
    Overestimating your own abilities will lead to just as much upset as when underestimated. Self-fulfilling prophecies are inapplicable with goals beyond our capabilities; not everyone is excellent or equal to each other, hence why different individuals will achieve comparatively more or less. This variance is not derived from our mindset, but from our aptitude in whatever our goal requires of us, which is determined by experience.

    I like the idea of being able to meet yourself because with new situations faced and new experiences, people change and this idea of meeting with yourself can mean that you are trying to understand the changes made and how this may prove beneficial in the future. I personally think that this quote is very clever.
    It's pretty much common sense that humans are constantly changing; whether any significant change occurs on a daily basis, however, is arguable—and leads me to think that this quote is hyperbolic, which unfortunately detracts from the meaning. There are far better quotes that convey the same message.

    The guy who originally gave the quote didn't have English as a first language and the quote itself I believe has been translated from his original mother tongue - probably why the hyperbole crept in. It certainly loses something in translation.

    I just believe that the ability to acknowledge the possible capabilities leads to hope which in turn can be necessary for success. A lot of what you said I agree with and a few I don't. Maybe we could agree to disagree?

    That's also very true. It's a real shame that that happens but I guess we just can't get completely accurate translations in life.
    At least most of the key message was apparent through the translation.

    Not sure what there is that I've said that could be disagreed with.

    Well, that somewhat justifies it. Thanks for letting me know.
