Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Are You Prepared For Success? (Section III - Installment #16 "It’s All In My State of Mind” – Male & Female versions)

(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])

If you are a regular reader of my Empowerment Process please read the Section II version of this poem first (male version, female version); then read this version.  

Winning...What Is It?

It's All In My State Of Mind

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.

(Based on a poem of unknown authorship)

I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
  • Your mind is a powerful tool and thoughts can influence actions.  What will you convince yourself of?
Stay Tuned.......

Hey Mel,

I thought this poem was familiar: I went to the previous version and there it was - my comment!
I must say that using the personal pronoun in the first person renders this poem even more powerful: well done!

"Your mind is a powerful tool and thoughts can influence actions." - absolutely!!! Only our mind can destroy us; and only our mind can make us reach the top.
Power to the Mind, I say!!!

"What will you convince yourself of?" - at this moment I need to convince myself that I will lose 3 cms in my waist...and I will, give me two months (we must avoid stretch marks lol)! Other than that, self-esteem is already so high, I am already convinced of so many things that if I keep up I will become unbearable *nodding*.

You can do ANYTHING. I have no doubt.

BTW, I understand, from reading some of the comments on your site, that you are now married!

CONGRATULATIONS!! Lucky, lucky guy.
