You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone's hand. First:
You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but this is required if you are to become a better pencil. Second:
You have the ability to correct any mistakes you might make. Third:
The most important part of you will always be what's inside. Fourth:
