If you think you are beaten, you are

I was told this poem yesterday and thought I would share it with you all.

if you think you are beaten, you are

if you think you dare not, you don’t

if you’d like to win but you think you can’t

if you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost

success begins with a fellows 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 can ever win the prize

life’s battles don’t always go

to the stronger or faster man

sooner or later the man who wins

is the one who thinks he can
