Invigorating and Inspiring Thought

One of my favorite stories involves an elementary school teacher who was delighted the first day of school to see what a smart class she'd been given. Next to each child's name were numbers like 138, 140, 154. Taking these numbers as the students' IQs, the teacher worked extra hard to challenge the class. By the end of the year, the progress was remarkable. It was then that she discovered the numbers weren't their IQs but their lockers.

Are your thoughts limiting or invigorating? Self-restricting or self-empowering?
