It’s All a State of Mind …

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 you find
Success begins with a fellow’s will,
It’s all a state of mind.

For many a race is lost,
Ere even a step is run;
And many a coward fails,
Ere even his work’s begun.

Think big, and your deeds will grow,
Think small and you’ll fall behind;
Think that you can, and you will,
It’s all a 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 ever can win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins,
Is the one who thinks he can.
