BEST ADVICE: Rachel Bendix


We asked residents of Ormond Beach about the best advice they'd ever received. Here is one of their responses.

Rachel Bendix, Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce membership director

Best advice: "He who says he can, and he who says he can’t, are both usually right." - Confucius 

The power and strength of the mind are often overlooked, or taken for granted. This quote reminds you that your attitude impacts your actions, beliefs and goals.

If you tell yourself you can’t do something, you never will be able to accomplish it because you’ve set yourself up to fail, before you even try. If you never have to try, you never have to fail.

Sometimes failures teach us more than successes. Learn from your mistakes and never tell yourself you can’t do something.
