(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])
If I think I am beaten, I am.
If I think I dare not, I won't.
If I'd like to win, but think I can't,
It's almost certain I don't.
If I think I'll lose, I've lost.
For out in the world I'll find
Success begins with my own will-
It's all in my state of mind.
Full many a race is lost
Ere even a step is run,
And many a coward falls
Ere even their work's begun.
I'll think big, so my deeds will grow;
If I think small, I'll fall behind;
I'll think I can, so I know I will-
For it's all in my state of mind.
If I think I'm out-classed, I am;
I will think high, so I will rise;
I will be sure of myself
So I can win the prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster than;
But sooner or later, I'm going to win
And it's because I know I can.
