The Man Who Thinks He Can

October 23, 2019 –

If you think you are beaten, you are.

  If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you’d like to win, but think you can’t.

  It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.

  For out in the world we find

Success begins with a fellow’s will.

  It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are.

  You’ve got to think high to rise.

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

  You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go

  To the stronger or faster man,

But soon or late, the man who wins,

  Is the man who thinks he can.
