You Can

I have read this from time to time – got it saved for ready reference, you know. In fact – the first time I read this – thanks to a teacher – I was totally awed by it – because it influenced me in a nice way. Its beautiful and inspiring words made a difference. Even if you’ve read it several times, it feels good to read it again! Attitude rules.
If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t,
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the person who wins
Is the person who thinks ‘I CAN!’

– Walter D. Wintle
