A rather fab poem that I return to from time to time when I am feeling deflated. I like the sentiment. It reminds me to keep going and enjoy the journey.
“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’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost
For out in 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 sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can!”
Walter D Wintle
