The Man Who Thinks He Can
"If you think you are beaten,you are;
If you think you dare not,you don't;
If you want to win but you think you can't,
It's almost a cinch you won't.
For in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will,
It's all in the state of mind.
For many race a race is lost
Ere even a step is run,
And many a coward fails;
Think big and your deeds will grow,
Think small and you'll fall behind;
Think that you can and you will---
It's all in 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 the prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins,
Is the fellow who thinks he can."
A key line in the above is,"life's battles don't always go to the stronger or faster man." I've seen many a time when the faster athlete on paper didn't have the proper mindset to win the race. Don't ever underestimate the power of your mind,next post tomorrow.
