Ender had confidence in himself, however, and believed that he could lead to humans to victory. Because of that 'belief ', he succeeded with the arduous task of victory. I am sure that my mentor would approve of this, because he is just like Ender. He believes in himself and in his cause. That is the belief that would allow us to go on further. We just need to believe.
