A ‘You Can’ approach..

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 a cinch you won’t.

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

Think big and your deeds will glow,
Think small and you’ll fall behind.
Think that you can, and you will,
It is all in the state of mind.

Life’s battles don’t always go,
To the stronger or faster men.
But soon or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.

Meet every adverse circumstance as its master,
Don’t let it master you.
