But soon or late the man who wins is the one who thinks he can.

Most people think that anger is an instinctive response,
and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.

But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.

They knew that it was a mortal sin to marry
someone of a different skin color.
