If you think you’re beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t,
It’s 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’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;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can!
~ Walter D Wintle
This is another poem that I first read in Napoleon Hill’s, ‘Think and Grow Rich’ and it’s another poem that inspires me.
Henry Ford said that, “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.”
I suspect that it’s also the reason that so few of us really succeed in life.
Be good to yourself: Savour the words of this poem and think your way to whatever you want.
Remember: If you’re going to think, you might as well Think BiG!
Have a great day,
