THE MAN WHO THINKS HE CAN. - poem


THE MAN WHO THINKS HE CAN..!

If you think you're beaten, you will be,
If you think you daren't, you don't,
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost certain that you wont.

If you think you'll lose, you've lost,
For out in the world you'll find,
Success begins with a good man's will,
Its 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 stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can.

As I have always said, Life is subjective, in more ways than one.. :cool:
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.

Interesting moral to the story and actually true. We DO tend to listen to ourselves and come to believe whatever we tell ourselves.
