A State of Mind
If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you won't,
If you like to win, but don't think you can
It's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out in the world you'll find,
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in a state of mind.
For many a game is lost
Ere even a play is run,
And many a coward fails
Ere even his work is begun.
Think big and your deeds will grow
Think small and you'll fall behind,
Think that you can and you will
It's all a state of mind.
If you think you're out-classed, 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 battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the fellow who thinks he can.
