“Prayer” by Joan Y on Flickr
If you think you are beaten–you are.
If you think you dare not–you don’t.
If you want to win but think you can’t,
It is almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose–you’ve lost.
For out in the world we find
That success begins with a fellow’s will;
It’s all in the state of mind.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.
