If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not you don’t!
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost certain 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’ll 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 person who thinks he can!
