If You Think...
If you think you’re beaten, you are;
If you think that you dare not, you don’t;
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t
It’s almost certain that you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost.
For out in the world you’ll find
Success begins with a person’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 even begin to touch the prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the strongest, fastest or brightest one;
But sooner or later, the ones who win
Are always the ones who think they can.
